Tips to Know Before You Go:

Ensure a smooth trip by planning ahead. Due to limited lodging options in April, it's wise to book accommodations early. Secure your stay now to avoid missing out.

For your convenience, public restrooms are accessible at Long Lake Town Beach, with porta-potties available at the municipal parking lot. Remember to respect the environment and refrain from littering. Please carry out what you bring in to keep Long Lake pristine.

If you need gas, Stewart's Shops is the sole gas station in town. Locals are advised to fuel up ahead of the weekend to avoid potential delays. 

As for dining options, consider establishments like ADK Trading Post, Adirondack Hotel, Long Lake Diner, Brookside Hops & Hoagies, Paradise Cove, and the Long View Lodge. Keep in mind that not all places may be open in April, so check for updates on their Facebook pages or contact them directly for current hours.

Lastly, ensure you have eclipse glasses for safe viewing. While there may be a limited supply in town, it's best to come prepared. Never look directly at the sun during the eclipse without proper eye protection.
