This lake is a mid-sized New York lake and has 71 miles of shoreline. The closest major airport, Pittsburgh International Airport, is only 508 miles away.
You are sure to find the best views of the Adirondacks at Cranberry Lake. It is a relatively large lake, covering 6,975 acres in size with 55 miles of shoreline.
The majority of the shoreline is made up of flourishing woodlands and natural scenery. A majority of the lake is located in Clifton, while other lake areas are situated in Piercefield and Fine.
The lake initially got its name for the extensive cranberry bogs that it once contained.
While boating, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and other water sports can be enjoyed on Cranberry Lake, the lake's real beauty is its surrounding wilderness.

The forest contains 6.2 miles of roads, 26.9 miles of foot trails, 9.3 miles of snowmobile trails, and 12.6 miles of ski trails.
