The Elk Lake - Clear Pond Preserve includes 40 miles of well-maintained private trails for the exclusive use of our guests. Elk Lake is also the take-off point for state trails into the Adirondacks' High Peaks.
Boating and fishing are available on 600-acre Elk Lake with its open water, inlets, bays and many islands and on the 200-acre deep glacial waters of Clear Pond. Kayaks, Rowboats, and canoes, are provided for guests.
Brook trout are abundant in Elk Lake and it is not uncommon to hook into a two-pound Brook trout, with an occassional three pounder. Also, lake trout and landlocked salmon may be found in nearby Clear Pond. Or you may venture into the several rushing streams and mountain ponds nearby for an incredible fly fishing experience.
Elk Lake provides an endlessly satisfying seasonal variety of Adirondack landscapes prized by photographers, naturalists, foragers, and ornithologists. It is the perfect place to stay in the Adirondacks and explore the true Adirondack wilderness.
Come to Elk Lake, enjoy a hearty Adirondack breakfast, and hear the haunting cry of the loon at Elk Lake Lodge!
