Located in New York, First Lake real estate is a tight inventory market in the state for lake homes and lake lots.
First Lake is one of the nine lakes belonging to the Essex Chain of Lakes in New York's Adirondack region, surrounded by mountains and forests. These lakes' shorelines are densely wooded and offer diverse wildlife viewing.
First Lake is located in Herkimer County, New York, and is the southernmost lake in the chain. The lake is connected to five lakes via narrow channels, with Fourth Lake being the most considerable portion.
Boating, swimming, whitewater rafting, hiking, fishing, and hunting are popular activities on First Lake. All of the nine Essex Chain of Lakes offer similar opportunities.
Fish species present in the lake are lake trout, Atlantic salmon, landlocked salmon, white sucker, brook trout, rainbow trout, yellow perch, and brown trout.
Enjoy the slopes at McCauley Mountain Ski Area on the shores of First Lake. Situated on the McCauley Mountain, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the 633-foot vertical drop.
