Tupper Lake, New York has rolling hills and mountains, fresh air, endless snow-covered forests, sparkling lakes, and a quaint community full of character and flavor. Nature is never very far away, even from downtown. Stroll through town and get fresh donuts or an Adirondack souvenir. A little farther out, amid the beauty of fall, miles of hiking trails offer adventure and scenery. The Tupper Lake Triad hiking challenge is fun and includes a fire tower peak and big views of the Adirondacks year-round. On the water adventures include paddling and the “lure” of fishing. Tupper Lake also boasts some of the darkest skies in the Northeast that are perfect for stargazing. There’s no shortage of restaurant options here, and beer lovers will love Raquette River Brewing. Downtown sidewalks are full of great buys and local flavor.
