About Lake Placid
Enjoy the Adirondacks

Lake Placid is in northern New York in the scenic Adirondack mountains. It encompasses 2,173 acres and has an average depth of about 50 feet. The lake spans between North Elba and St. Armand.

Lake Placid is only an hour's drive away from the famous Lake Champlain, which flows along the New York-Vermont state border.

Enjoy Lake Placid

Boating, fishing, waterskiing, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and more can be enjoyed on Lake Placid's waters. This lake is connected to East Lake and West Lake, which are sometimes just called Lake Placid.

The Lake Placid region is home to some trophy walleye and pike and four different types of trout: brook trout, brown trout, lake trout, and rainbow trout.

If skiing isn't your thing, you can try a golf round at the Lake Placid Club Golf Courses. This course is located on Lake Placid's southern tip and is the perfect spot to spend a weekend on the green. The Lake Placid Club offers 45 holes of spectacular golf in the heart of the Adirondacks.

You can also spend time with nature in the McKenzie Mountain Wilderness and Sentinel Range Wilderness.

Visit Lake Champlain

Whether the sun is shining or the snow is falling, Lake Champlain boasts endless water sport opportunities to keep you busy.

Kayaking, sailing, boating, or even stand-up paddleboarding can carry you to the many quiet coves and sandy beaches that dot the lake's shore.

Residents and visitors alike have plenty of docks and dine options, from the North Hero House in the north to the Basin Harbor Club in the south, and everything in between.

Love to fish? Lake Champlain is home to more than 90 species of wild game, including trout, bass, and northern pike, to name a few. And even after the warm weather fades away, ice fishing in the winter is just as famous and twice the adventure.

Enjoy Lake Placid

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