Indian Lake, New York

Those seeking the quintessential Adirondack community – a place to visit, a place to live, or a place to open a business – will love the Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake and Sabael area. Surrounded by numerous lakes, ponds, streams, and mountains our community takes pride in its heritage and traditions. You can see that spirit reflected in volunteerism, commitment to education, and an array of community services, facilities, and activities.

Our Adirondack Community

The Town of Indian Lake was established in 1858. The town, located in Hamilton County with a population of approximately 1,400, lies within the six-million acre Adirondack Park. Essex County and Warren County border its east. In the village center, the east-west State Highway 28 meets the north-south Highway 30. The Hudson River forms part of the eastern town line. And, believe it or not, there are no traffic lights in town!

  • The Indian Lake Museum in the hamlet of Indian Lake contains displays and artifacts relating to the historic Indian population.
  • The Indian Lake Theater Community Stage & Screen, the original 1938 theater reopened in 2008, provides entertaining movies, operas, live performances, and more for year round residents and visitors.
  • Adirondack Experience, The Musuem on Blue Mountain Lake tells the story of the people who lived, worked, and played in the region.
  • The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts (The Arts Center) at Blue Mountain Lake provides cultural events, workshops, and plays throughout the year.
  • The Indian Lake Library provides books, DVDs, audios, and access to the Internet.

Cool Fact: The Lake itself was the inspiration for the 1960s hit single INDIAN LAKE by The Cowsills. (The writer spent vacation time at what used to be Beeches Cottages on Indian Lake.)
