Saratoga Lake Offers Great Recreation
March 22, 2014
Saratoga Lake is another great attraction for the Saratoga Springs area. It is located just a few miles south of town and offers all the aquatic recreation you would expect. The lake is about two miles wide and five miles long making it plenty big for fun water activities. Kayderosseras Creek flows into the lake from the north while it’s outlet is the head for Fish Creek on the south.
Most of the shore property is privately owned, but there is public access at the northern boat launch, plus there are many private marinas that would be happy to accommodate you. In addition there are a number of businesses that offer boat rental, water ski equipment and fishing guides. There are also boat tours available for those who would like to see the sites with a knowledgeable guide.
Imagine yourself out on the lake with friends and family, waterproof wakeboard tower speakers thumping out your favorite music as you crank up the marine stereo and participate in endless skiing and wakeboarding fun! It’s all possible at Saratoga lake!
You can find wonderful restaurants and hotels at the Lake as well such as Harvest & Hearth on Fish Creek and Cliff’s Country Inn which offers lake view rooms.
Fishing is great on Saratoga Lake. Fishermen can find Bass, northern pike and walleye plentifully. During the winter, ice fishing is popular and bow hunting for carp is a fun pursuit. You can check out the weekly Saratoga fishing Report.
The sport of rowing is also popular on the lake and it would not be unusual to see the Skidmore College Champion Rowing Team out practing their talents. The Lake has hosted numerous collegiate rowing races since the late 1800s!
If you are looking for more than just a short visit, vacation rental properties are available, or stay a while and purchase your own lakefront home!
