Experience Autumn in Indian Lake

As the heat of summer fades, autumn gradually takes over the landscape. Sunny days and cool nights are the hallmark of September into early October, transforming the landscape from summer green to autumn hues.  Autumn is the season for two of our signature events: Adirondack Mountains Antiques show held on the 3rd week of September and Great Adirondack Moose Festival held on the 4th weekend of September. 

Moose Festival


There is nothing as spectacular as the vibrant oranges, reds, and yellow mountains. Many visitors consider "leaf peaking" or "leaf peeping" as an annual pilgramage. Indian Lake is the perfect destination to take in the colors by car, by boat or on foot. Autumn might be the best time to do our 4-3-2-1 Hiking Challenge!

The hills and woods in Indian Lake abound with game. There are abundant turkeys, grouse, quail and other small game. An experienced woodsman knowledgeable about the habits of the game will find them. There are numerous deer and black bear in our woods. You may be rewarded and see a moose during your time in the woods.

Fishing licenses are available at the Chamber of Commerce's Visitor Center and Town Hall during their respective business hours.
