Great Sacandaga Lake Description
The Great Sacandaga Lake in northern New York State provides a picturesque setting for lake homes for sale. Tucked in the state’s prized Adirondack Preserve, the Great Sacandaga Lake is a true wilderness wonderland. Its abundance of outdoor recreation attracts enthusiasts all year long, from the big city day-tripper to the hard core ice angler.
The Great Sacandaga Lake invites anglers to fish its waters from January to December, and is happens to be one of the largest lakes in the Adirondack Park. The pristine waters are well stocked with varieties of trout, bass, walleye, pike, and even salmon. In fact, a 46-pound, 2-ounce northern pike was caught on this lake in 1940, setting the world record. May is the month of choice to hunt such monstrous northern pike, while the winter months attract their own unique breed of sport fishing. The Great Sacandaga Lake has a rich ice fishing tradition that draws thousands to its 42 square miles of frozen surface each year. Aficionados participate in numerous ice fishing competitions throughout the season, testing their luck against the cold of the lake and the cunning of the fish.

Nestled in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, there is a large, crystal clear body of water known as the "Great Sacandaga Lake". Unspoiled, unpopulated and unknown to most, this majestic lake (29 miles long with 125 miles of shoreline) is one of the few remaining "natural wonders" of New York State. Protected by the Adirondack Park Agency and the Hudson River Black River Regulating District Authority, The Great Sacandaga Lake has kept its natural beauty a secret from the "advances" of technology and commercialism.
