Three Reasons to Visit: Great Sacandaga Lake
When you have a major river like the Hudson coursing through your state, at some point youíll need to do something to control the flooding. Thatís how little Sacandaga Lake (and Sacandaga Valley in general) turned into the massive reservoir now know as Great Sacandaga Lake: the valley and lake were dammed up to ease the Hudsonís flooding issues.
So why should you visit a giant reservoir? There are many reasons, but hereís three to be starting with:
1. When we say big, we mean huge. As in more than 120 miles of shoreline and an average of 40 feet deep - in some areas that increases to at least 65 feet deep. There are several towns along the shoreline, including Broadalbin, Edinburg, Mayfield, and Northville.
2. If you like water sports, thereís lots to do, from ice fishing in the winter to windsurfing at Broadalbin Beach.
3. If you like your sporting events to take place on dry land with a lake view, you can hike, fish, golf, hunt, or go bird watching. And remember, these are the Adirondack Mountains, so be prepared for spectacular scenery!
A vacation on the lake wouldnít be complete without a vacation rental. Be it multi-room home or small cabin, a vacation rental gives you freedom and space, plus the flexibility to do whatever you want. We hope you enjoy your stay in the Great Sacandaga Lake area!
