Long Lake to Tupper Lake or the Saranacs

St. Regis Canoe Outfitters

A popular and relatively easy lake and river trip. The Raquette River may be followed to Tupper Lake or one may portage to Upper Saranac and end either at our Floodwood base or Saranac Lake. The eastern route shown on the map goes to Ampersand Bay, to end at our Saranac Lake base you'll paddle through Lake Flower and have a short additional portage. Most parties use our transportation to the put-in and paddle to our base. Reservations necessary for any night spent on either Middle or Lower Saranac Lakes through the Saranac Lake Islands Campground.
