About Black Lake
Below the Canadian Border

Twenty-mile-long Black Lake, located in the 1000 Islands Region of upstate New York, has been a popular fishing and vacation destination for over a hundred years.

The freshwater lake sits about 10 miles from the flowing waters of the St. Lawrence River, which also serves as a physical border for the United States and Canada.

It will take you about an hour to drive into Canada due to border stops and toll roads. Black Lake is also about an hour’s drive from Lake Ontario, one of the great lakes.

Outdoor Living

Besides boating, fishing, sailing, and water skiing, Black Lake also offers many hiking trails for wildlife viewing.

Nearby is Watson’s East Triangle Wild Forest, Five Ponds Wilderness, and Independence River Wild Forest are just a few of the surrounding forests that you can easily explore while living on Black Lake.

Enjoy the St. Lawrence River, which is the outlet for the entire Great Lakes system. With an average width of two miles and a maximum depth of over 200 feet, this is the largest east-west river.

Smallmouth and largemouth bass, northern pike, walleye, yellow perch, bullheads, and various panfish types are all familiar to the St. Lawrence River. So, it is a great nearby resource for committed anglers.

Visit Watertown, New York

The sprawling lake town, Watertown, sits along the eastern shore of Lake Ontario, just an hour’s drive from Black Lake. It is one of the larger nearby cities with restaurants on the river, malls for shopping, and places to stop and have a drink.

Ives Hill Country Club is a great place to stop for a weekend round of golf. With 18 holes on a well-manicured green, you are sure to have a relaxing time practicing your game.

The New York Zoo is also located in Watertown and spans 32 acres with dozens of native species living in their habitats. Some animals are more common, like black bears and turtles, while others like the Canada lynx have earned an endangered or threatened status.

Experience the Beauty of Upstate New York

Whether you are looking to buy a family home, a full-time retirement residence, or a vacation rental, Black Lake is an excellent choice.
