Lake Adirondack

Lake Adirondack is located within the Village of Indian Lake and is a warm water fishery. The lake was stocked with sterile triploid grass carp a few years ago to control the abundance of the aquatic vegetation. By doing this, the town has helped to improve recreational opportunities on the lake.
