Recreation & Activities

There is no shortage of recreational opportunities in the Adirondacks, or ways to explore its extraordinary history!

The Adirondack Park is comprised of six million acres (43% of which is state-owned), it is the largest wilderness area east of the Mississippi River and north of Florida's Everglades, and the largest state park in the lower 48 states.

The Park includes forty-six picturesque mountains in excess of 4,000 feet, several of Alpine elevation, as well as hundreds of lakes, streams, and rivers, including the wild Ausable, the east coast's finest fly fishing river.

Its most significant body of water is Lake Champlain, which is on the Park's eastern edge. Glacially formed, Champlain is 399 feet at its deepest just two miles north of Split Rock, and is the sixth largest freshwater lake in the United States. Lake Champlain was also the birthplace of the American navy, and site of the first naval engagement of the American Revolution.

Be it hiking, biking, rafting, boating, sailing, fishing, golfing, skiing, or some other activity, we hope that this modest guide will help you plan a most fulfilling visit to Split Rock Farmhouse and Split Rock Lighthouse!

We are proud to be a Forever Wild Partner with
The Adirondack Council
