Great Sacandaga Lake is nestled in the foothills of
the Adirondack Preserve and boasts a unique and distinguished
the Sacandaga Valley was home to the Mohawk Indians
and was settled by Sir William Johnson in the 1700s. In the 1920’s
the Valley was a booming resort town with luxurious
and beautifully landscaped inns with golf courses, a sports complex,
Broadway Theater and amusement park with a roller coaster!
The waters of the Sacandaga River and the Hudson flooded with
run-off every spring causing great damage to homes and businesses.
Work to flood the valley began in the 1920’s and the
great Conklingville Dam was put to use in the Spring of 1930
filling the great valley with 283 billion gallons of water!
the Great Sacandaga Reservoir is an undiscovered Mecca for
boating, water sports, snowmobiling, skiing, fishing and all
kinds of recreation. Historical markers and museums mark the
great events of the area. Antiques and crafts are found little
shops everywhere. And we boast some of the best lake front dining
around! Unlike other lakes the Great Sacandaga Lake is still
quaint and pristine! And Last Year we were voted the 2nd best
place in the country to be for our nightlife by Snogoer Magazine!
