    About Rainbow Lake
    In the Heart of the Adirondacks

    Rainbow Lake is in the heart of the lush Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. It rests near the New York-Vermont state border, which is physically embodied by the famous Lake Champlain. It is a part of Franklin County near Gabriels, New York. Rainbow Lake is only a two-hour drive from the famous city of Montreal, Canada.

    Fishing and Boating

    Rainbow Lake Chain contains a great variety of fish. Among the species are: bullheads, crappie, yellow perch, bluegills, sunfish, great northern pike, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, whitefish, walleye pike, and various minnows.

    The Rainbow Lake Association provides rules for boating on Rainbow Lake. Motorized watercraft are permitted and provide great fun on the lake. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle boating, swimming, and sailing can also be enjoyed.

    Rainbow Lake is also connected to Clear Pond, Lake Kushaqua, and Buck Pond via a string of waterways known as the Rainbow Narrows. So, you can also take the opportunity to explore these areas as well.

    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.

    Live Colorfully

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