Long Pond Cabins is an angler’s paradise. The location is perfect for the avid angler or for family fishing. The 400-acre lake boasts northern pike, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and perch.

 

Nearby (5 min. to boat launch) Lake Champlain has championship fishing! You can try your luck at catching lake trout, steelhead trout, landlocked Atlantic salmon, smelt, walleye, largemouth and smallmouth bass, and northern pike. Lake Champlain boat launches are located in Willsboro, Essex, Westport, Peru, and Plattsburgh.

 

Campers can also enjoy the Willsboro salmon ladder and viewing station on the Boquet River or try their luck on the famous Ausable River.

Canoeing and Kayaking

Long Pond is perfect for canoeing or kayaking. You may see beaver on the lake or spot ducks and other wildlife during your early morning or evening paddle. For a more challenging paddle, try Lake Champlain – with 585 miles of shoreline to explore, you’ll have plenty of routes to choose from.

 

Paddling in the Adirondacks is a unique experience. The options are endless — imagine 36,000 miles of brooks, streams, and rivers plus 3,000 lakes and ponds!

Hiking is a favorite Adirondack pastime and the options are endless. The Rattlesnake Mountain trailhead is just across the road from the recreation hall. Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain is the most prominent peak seen across Long Pond. The views from the fire tower at the top of the mountain are awesome. On a clear day you can see the Montreal skyline. The trailhead is just a short drive away.

bicycling

Bring your bike to Long Pond and enjoy miles of bike routes in the Lake Champlain Valley and eastern region of the Adirondack Park. Long Pond Cabins is located on the “Champlain Bikeway” — a 350 mile route around Lake Champlain from Whitehall, NY to Chambly, Quebec. There are numerous bicycle loops that branch off from the main Champlain Bikeway which provide links to the region’s natural, cultural, agricultural, and historical resources. Try the “Rolling Reber Ramble” or the “Ausable River Valley Loop.”

 

Of course, the thrill of mountain biking can be experienced in the eastern Adirondacks. There are trails located in the High Peaks region and Whiteface Mountain outside Lake Placid offers trails on an “Olympic” scale.
