Swimming

Swimming in the Adirondacks

The Adirondacks boasts 3,000 lakes and ponds, along with endless streams and rivers. Whether you choose to dip your toes, or dive right in, there's nothing like the feel of cool mountain water on a hot Adirondack day. Swimming, of course, is one of the most popular family activities in Lake Placid. Whether you're looking for a sandy beach and lifeguard, or a hidden oasis fed by underground springs, your options are plentiful.

If you're hiking on state land and come across a mountain stream - feel free to take a dip! But, be sure to follow posted signs, as some of the land abutting state property is privately owned.
