Indian Lake, New York, in the heart of the Adirondacks

Indian_Lake_NY_28_and_30_editedIndian Lake is a town in Hamilton County, New York, United States. The population was 1,352 at the 2010 census. The name is from a large lake partly inside the town. There are no permanent stop lights in the town, much less the county.

Burke’s Cottages are nestled remotely in the “smack dab” middle area surrounding this pristine lake!

The Town of Indian Lake New York is on the east border of the county and is northeast of Utica. Indian Lake terms itself the “Moose capital of the Northeast.”

The Town of Indian Lake was established in 1858 from the Towns of Gilman (now defunct), Long Lake, and Wells. In 1861, Indian Lake was expanded using territory from Gilman and Lake Pleasant, New York.

The Indian Lake Museum in the hamlet of Indian Lake contains displays relating to the historic Indian population. The Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake has displays of outdoor living in the region. The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts in Blue Mountain Lake provides cultural events during the summer season. The Indian Lake Library provides books, DVDs, audios and access to the Internet.

The Lake itself was the inspiration for the 1960s hit single INDIAN LAKE by The Cowsills. (The writer having spent vacation there at what used to be Beeches Cottages on Indian Lake.)

Once called the “Whitewater Capital of New York State,” Indian Lake remains a haven
