Raquette Lake

This is a two-mile, flat-water paddle to an old dam that generated the power for the Great Camp Sagamore complex years ago. The water way is a good Boreal Habitat. Look for Wood Warblers near the dam. The American Bittern can be often heard doing his water pump "Oong-ka' choonk! Oong-ka" choonk! call near the bridge in June. The mile-long foot trail on the right side of the dam goes through large hardwoods to the Sagamore Road and is good for warblers and other summer songsters.


Directions: Going east from Raquette Lake village on Rte. 28, cross South Inlet on a large blue bridge. There is good parking and easy access to the water on the south side of the road.
