Adirondacks, New York, Resource Guides
The Adirondack Park and adjacent areas contain thousands of lakes and ponds and hundreds of miles of rivers and streams, including the mountain lake that is the headwaters of the Hudson River. It can be considered one of the nations most valuable resources. Below are some of the more popular routes, though many of the best experiences can still be found by exploration.

The Saranac chain of lakes consists of Upper Saranac Lake , Middle
by Photographer Carl Heilman
Saranac Lake, Lower Saranac Lake , Lake Ossetah, Lake Flower and the Saranac River. The route from Upper Saranac Lake to Lake Flower covers around 25 miles.
  The water flows in a southeastern direction from Upper Saranac Lake to Middle Saranac Lake, which then flows east to Lower Saranac Lake, Oseetah Lake, Saranac River, and north to Lake Flower in the Village of Saranac Lake. The Saranac River then continues until it flows into Lake Champlain in Plattsburgh. The route travels along thousands of acres of "Forever Wild" designated State lands, waterways and beaches.
 
You can paddle the entire chain with only one short portage between Upper Saranac Lake and Middle Saranac Lake. A good starting point is on the north end of Upper Saranac Lake on Back Bay.
Paddling south you will pass Dry and Green Islands. Continuing south, Markham Point, Square Bay, and Saginaw Bay, are all on the east shore. Buck Island is at the head of Saginaw Bay. Fish Creek Bay, on the west. Continuing south through The Narrows, the lake opens up again. Birch Point, Eagle Island, Gull Point, Gull Bay, Deer Island and Doctors Island are all landmarks to guide your trip. Chapel Island, located on your right at the southern end of the lake, has summer church services open to the public. At the south end of the lake, head east into Huckleberry Bay and look for signs marking Bartlett Carry. This is the only portage on this journey and is a short walk to Middle Saranac Lake.
Head East across Middle Saranac Lake to the end of the lake where the Saranac River takes you to the Upper Locks. Paddle further down the Saranac River and you will be in Lower Saranac Lake. Pass Pope Bay, Pope Island and Picnic Point and head southeast into the Saranac River once more. You will travel through First Pond, go under Route 3 and then into Second Pond. The route then takes you on the Saranac River into the Lower Locks. After the locks the river widens into Oseetah Lake. You will pass Demerse, Winonah and Papoose Islands and Otter Slide which will be on your left. Follow the river into Lake Flower and the public boat launch in the Village of Saranac Lake.

Camping Permits for Kayakers & Canoers

Camping permits are required for: (1) any party of ten or more, or (2) any party remaining in the same location for four or more nights. You are responsible for obtaining your own camping permit before your arrival from the State Forest Ranger for the district in which you will enter state lands. New York State now requires that anyone bringing --paying clients-- onto state land must have a Guide’s License. Non-profit organizations are exempt.

In accordance with state laws, (1) properly dispose of human wastes (burial at least 8- down and 150’ away from water or camp), (2) help maintain water quality by not washing directly in the lake or stream, (3) cut only wood that is both dead and down and (4) carry out all you carry in. Boiling or treating drinking water is recommended.
