Why Visit Hinckley Lake?
Hinckley Lake - also known as Hinckley Reservoir - is located in the Adirondacks region of New York, and it enjoys the vista of mountains, streams, and lakes (man-made or natural) that many of its neighbors do as well. Black River is a short drive to the north, and Ferris Lake is to the east.
There are three principal towns that are located around or near the lake: Hinckley is set on the southwestern shores, the village of Grant is located at the southeastern tip of the lake, and a bit further inland toward the southern edge of the lake is Prospect. The Hinckley Reservoir Picnic Area, near the town of Hinckley, has facilities for boating, canoeing, swimming, fishing, hiking and even a historical spot of interest.
Being on the western edge of the Adirondacks has another advantage; the finger lakes are not all that far away. Itís a two hour drive to Oswego, on the shores of Lake Ontario, and an hour and a half to Syracuse and the start of those long, slender Finger Lakes.
With all this water around, itís not surprising that youíre searching for a vacation rental in the region. Even if youíre not into water sports per se, a vacation rental at the beach or at least overlooking a tranquil lake is a time-honored trip tradition.
