All About Trout Lake NY

Lake Locations: USA - Mid-Atlantic - New York - Adirondacks -

Trout Lake, a scenic residential lake, is located within the Adirondacks tourism region of New York and a mere 20 miles from Lake George, “Queen of American Lakes.” One of 20 lakes found in Warren County, Trout Lake falls within the town of Bolton and the hamlet of Bolton Landing. Trout Lake is approximately 1.5 miles long and a half-mile wide at the widest points of its crescent shape. This natural glacial lake has an outflow at its northeast end, where water flows into Huddle Brook and on to Huddle Bay in Lake George.

No public property exists on 254-acre Trout Lake and water access is controlled by the lake association. Near Huddle Brook, at the northeast end of the lake, a footpath provides limited public access to the inviting lakeshore. Use of Trout Lake’s beach is limited to beach association members. To preserve tranquility for residents, the lake association has banned personal water craft and limited the size of a boat’s horsepower. With an average depth of 20 feet and maximum depth of 70 feet, the surrounding steep hills reduce the size of the watershed, keeping water quality high. For those who wish to fish the peaceful waters, fish species include largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, brown bullhead, lake trout, splake, chain pickerel, pumpkinseed, rainbow smelt and rainbow trout.

If small-lake fishing is your preference, numerous lakes are scattered throughout the Adirondacks. Near Trout Lake, and within Warren County, additional fishing and camping sites include 1,357-acre Brant Lake near the community of Horicon, 434-acre Friends Lake, 581-acre Loon Lake near Chester, and 335-acre Thirteenth Lake near Johnsburg.

For those living on and around Trout Lake, there is no better place than Lake George for water sports of all kinds. Bolton Landing, a small hamlet in the town of Bolton, offers two sandy beaches along Lake George’s shoreline. Found near the intersection of Main Street and Lakeshore Drive, Rogers Memorial Park and Veteran’s Memorial Park Beach are free to the public, but do charge for parking. Designed for a perfect family outing, the parks feature picnic grounds, tennis courts, boat launches, boat docking, summer concerts and firework displays.

Bolton Landing is also known as the “Gateway to the Islands.” Within easy driving distance of Trout Lake, numerous marinas will provide the perfect craft for visitors to explore the 300 islands on Lake George. Campers may enjoy lake trout, land-locked salmon and bass fishing in and around any of the 387 campsites or 116 day-use and picnic sites.

A five-minute drive from Trout Lake, Cat and Thomas Mountains Preserve holds seven miles of hiking trails within “one of the largest, intact, ecologically significant landscapes remaining on Lake George.” Three additional preserves protected by Lake George Land Conservancy are available along 48,500 feet of shoreline and 12,530 acres of land.

Tongue Mountain Range lies on a peninsula 10 miles north of Bolton and Trout Lake. In any season, 18 miles of hiking and skiing trails lead to spectacular views of Lake George and surrounding mountains. The mountains are open to wilderness camping with reminders to always take precautions for changing weather conditions and timber rattlesnakes.

Ten miles south of Trout Lake is the charming village of Lake George. In addition to shopping, golfing, biking, horseback riding and parasailing, visitors have the opportunity to observe living history demonstrations at Fort William Henry Museum, a replica of the fort held by the British during the French and Indian War (1754-1763). Located at the western edge of Lake George Village, 2,030-foot Prospect Mountain holds a popular hiking and picnic trail. At the end of the trail is a spectacular view that captures the entirety of Lake George. After viewing the lake from a mountain top, you can return to the village, where steamboat cruises offer a variety of leisurely lake tours.

Equal to the tranquil water of Trout Lake and overwhelming beauty of Lake George are wooded hills and mountains of Adirondacks Park. Encompassing almost six million acres, the land is protected by New York state to be “forever wild.” Opportunities to experience Mother Nature in all her glory are endless. Hundreds of park campgrounds, cabins and shelters, both public and private, offer a range of accommodations from rustic to modern amenities. Over 2,000 miles of marked hiking trails provide access to the mountains with trails available for every ability. Throughout the seasons you will find opportunities for whitewater rafting, bicycling, fishing, ice fishing, skiing, snowshoeing or wildlife watching. All of this, and more, awaits the fortunate residents of Trout Lake.

Four hours north of New York City and three hours south of Montreal, Trout Lake offers visitors an opportunity to live the Adirondacks experience. Real estate properties and vacation rentals along secluded Trout Lake provide a welcome sight after a day of hiking, sailing or shopping. From an exclusive hillside home, you can put up your feet, sip a glass of wine and delight in the tranquil view of Trout Lake where “forever wild” is on display.
