The Great Sacandaga is a man-made reservoir providing recreational opportunities to residents and visitors alike in all four seasons of the year.
The Great Sacandaga Lake is a 29 mile long reservoir with 125 miles of shoreline and a total capacity of 37.75 billion cubic feet located in Saratoga and Fulton Counties in New York State. The lake was completed in the early 1930's and benefited commercial, electrical utilities and flood control interests. Waters released from the Conklingville Dam continue through the Sacandaga River until meeting the Hudson River and eventually the Atlantic Ocean at New York City. Towns on the lake include Mayfield and Broadalbin in the South and Northville, Edinburg and Day in the North. The lake is protected by the Adirondack Park Agency and the Hudson River-Black River Regulating District.
Since the 1930's, the Great Sacandaga Lake has evolved into a four season recreational destination for residents of the North East. The lake is home for Northhampton State Park operated by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and public boat launches as well as marinas. Lake activities include golfing, camping, fishing, motor and sailboating, water skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.
