Welcome to the Schroon Lake Region! 

 

 

Schroon Lake boasts its beautiful 9 mile motoring lake and friendly atmosphere.  Rightly so!  Schroon Lake Region has hometown charm and great culture.  Schroon Lake is known for our 'day tripping' explorations:  forty minutes and you are having fun in Lake Placid, or Lake George, or beautiful Hamilton County.  There is much, much, to explore yet a great place to call home after all your Adirondack adventures.   Schroon Lake, being a lake town, has many activities from rodeo, folks festivals, parades, snowmobile races, fishing derbies, famous Seagle Colony music, and other shows at our boat house theater and more.   Schroon's Chamber is very active throughout the year organizing activities for residents and visitors.  Schroon Lake School gets recognized as "Best in Nation" (click here for news).
