Originally the Sacandaga Valley was home to the Mohawk Indians and was settled by Sir William Johnson in the 1700s. In the 1920’s the Valley was a booming resort town with luxurious and beautifully landscaped inns with golf courses, a sports complex, off Broadway Theater and amusement park with a roller coaster! Work to flood the valley began in the 1920’s and the great Conklingville Dam was put to use in the Spring of 1930 filling the great valley with 283 billion gallons of water! Today the Great Sacandaga Reservoir is an undiscovered Mecca for boating, water sports, snowmobiling, skiing, fishing and all kinds of recreation. Historical markers and museums mark the great events of the area. Antiques and crafts are found in little shops everywhere. And we boast some of the best lake front dining around! Unlike other lakes, the Great Sacandaga Lake is still quaint and pristine making an unforgettable Adirondack experience.

Our stay was amazing. Just perfect. Already planning our next trip back!
