The Adirondack Park is the largest protected wilderness in the continental United States. Covering over 6 million acres, it is home to black bears, moose, wolves, coyotes, lynx, osprey and the bald eagle. There are over 2300 ponds and lakes, 30,000 miles of streams and brooks feeding 2,000 miles of rivers. These waterways provide miles of navigable flatwater and whitewater. It's one of the best freshwater fisheries in the eastern United States. The spectacular mountains in the park are countless. Forty six of the peaks are over 4,000 feet in elevation. The Adirondack Park provides the perfect setting for your wilderness adventure.
