this quaint, pristine, and angular shaped lake,  boasts ample aquatic recreational oportunities for the entire family.

 

The crystal-clear lake water, is excellent for fishing for lake trout, swimming, and for all types of water sports and boating.

From  canoes and kayaks,  to the unique "motorized rafts" (which is what Star Lake is famous for), to  motor boats and jet skis, tubing, knee boarding and water skiing, to "REAL life social networking"  (Relaxing, meeting new folks and having a good time at The very popular "Sand bar" in the center of the lake)... this lake has something for everyone!

 

Whatever your leisure, one thing is certain... Star Lake is one of the best kept secrets in the Adirondacks.

"Youngs Road" Car Top Boat Access:

 

A "Top 10 Area Favorite Fishing Access Location"

 

 

 

This is a public boat launch developed my NYS DEC to access Star Lake. This is the ONLY public access to Star Lake as all other shoreline is private property. Star Lake is an excellent destination for loons and even while the shore is well developed it is still a very scenic paddling opportunity.

 

 

Trailhead Location:

 

This launch is located at the corner of Route 3 and Youngs Road in the Hamlet of Star Lake.
