Great place to learn about the Adirondacks and have fun with your kids! They have otters, fish, nature trails, guided hikes, panoramic films, lots of interactive exhibits, and all types of small animals and birds. Love it, love it, love it!
Tupper Lake is located in the heart of the Adirondacks within the 20 miles of the headwaters of all the major Adirondack Rivers, a land of a thousand lakes and open wilderness at your beckon call. Come and hike, canoe or just rest in the scenic Adirondacks.
Well to pick a favorite restaurant in tupper lake is like picking a favorite squash team to cheer for, you just can't win. But for the best food in town i would head up to the golf course and eat at the country club.
located right on the golf course, the restaurant has beautiful views of the surrounding area.
Favorite Dish: everything is a bit pricey for the quality but everything on the menu is decent.
if your in town make a trip out to the bog river falls on route 30 simply take a right at the horse shoe lake road and stop after the bridge over the falls. A beautiful place to have a pinic or spend an afternoon.
Favorite thing: Come the second weekend in july. The woodsmens field days an annual event marked by a parade and lumberjack competitions all weekend. Beer tents galore and a little something for everyone (Chainsaw wood carvings, grease poll climbing, axe throw, horse pulls, ect.)
Fondest memory: My fondest memory of tupper lake will most definately always be time spent outdoors. I have never been to another place where you feel so guilty to be inside on a sunny day. I never understood why rich and famous people have homes in this area until a few years ago when i went away to college.
In the summer, the two most popular attractions would have to be the beautiful 18 hole golf course and spending time on the waters here.(Tupper Lake, Simond Pond, Raquette Pond and Raquette River).
In the winter the local civic center is very busy and the many snowmobile trails are used extensively by individuals and clubs. In the fall, the changing leaves draw people from all over. It's the best season for camping and hiking around here.
In the spring...stay indoors....blackfly season!
Fondest memory: The thing we enjoy the most about Tupper Lake is being close to nature and still be able to order pizza, watch a movie at the local theater, watch a baseball game at the local ball park, go see a hockey game at the local civic center, and play golf if you like. We may not have everything but it's enough and the fresh air, beautiful scenery and wildlife are things we never get used to.
