Do More Outdoors

From the scenic wonder of the St. Lawrence River to the reflective solitude of the Adirondack wilderness, St. Lawrence County is a paradise of year-round outdoor adventure for recreation enthusiasts and their families.

Come Discover There's More Outdoors Here!

Enjoy four seasons of endless outdoor adventures for every age and skill level from your home base in St. Lawrence County. Hike, bike, run, ride, ski or snowshoe hundreds of miles of trails. Challenge yourself to summit the 46 High Peaks of the Adirondacks to join the ADK46ers Club. Cast your fishing rod or paddle one of the many lakes, rivers and streams. Spend sunny summer days on your boat or jetski cruising the St. Lawrence River, and winter days ice skating, cross-country skiing or head to one of the nearby downhill ski resorts (including Whiteface, with the steepest vertical drop in the Eastern US). 

Every season, every day, everywhere in St. Lawrence County, you’ll find recreational activities for the whole family.

I love the area. I have what I consider the most beautiful river in the country at my footsteps, I have the mountains less than two hours away… I have everything right here at my fingertips.
