Lake Desolation is precisely the opposite of its namesake. In addition to the beautiful surrounding nature, the lake is just minutes away from the premier shopping and dining at Saratoga Springs. Albany is around an hour away, a convenient distance for big-city attractions and amenities.
Resting in the 433-acre Lake Desolation State Forest, scenic woodlands and wetlands surround you on Lake Desolation. This area is beloved by many because it is a perfect destination for non-motorized travel.
The area offers several recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts, including hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, and paddling. It also has plenty of opportunities to see wildlife as the lake is surrounded by state forest land.
The most popular fish caught in Lake Desolation are largemouth bass, yellow perch, and smallmouth bass.
Due to its elevation, the lake is one of the first to freeze in the area, making Lake Desolation a popular choice for snowmobiling and ice skating.
There is plenty of entertainment, shopping, dining, drinking, outdoor activities, arts, and seasonal fun in Saratoga Springs.
Stay at the Six Flags Great Escape Lodge & Indoor Waterpark or pick pumpkins at the Ellms Family Farm. It is a truly charming town that welcomes everyone who comes for a visit.
