Long Lake is located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains almost exactly in the center of the Adirondack Park.
The park is 6 million acres of "Forever Wild" forest that is strictly regulated in regards to any development.
The town itself is home to approximately 1000 full-time residents and grows to around 4500 to 5000 during the summer months.
Many people maintain a "summer residence" here and live downstate or even out of state most of the rest of the year.
Long Lake is the longest lake in the Adirondack State Park and has 14 miles of excellent fishing.
On any given day you may catch large and small mouth bass, Great Northern Pike, sunfish, perch and/or bullheads.
Neighboring streams provide a trout experience.
In addition, there are several local hiking trails, picnic areas at nearby Buttermilk Falls, an occasional boat cruise of the lake, and Helms Aero Service which offers charter air service for sightseeing, fishing, hunting or cargo.
The town offers gift shops, ice cream stands, tennis and basketball courts, a Laundromat, stores, marina, restaurants, and many town sponsored activities.
