New York undiscovered, from the banks of the St. Lawrence River to the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains.

On New York’s northern border, St. Lawrence County is a region with a diverse array of opportunities for easy access, low-tech outdoor experiences. Although you can golf, boat, and swim while looking at Canada over the River, you can also have a birds-eye view of the Adirondacks from the easy trails in the northwest foothills of the Park.

Toddlers, grandparents, and newbies to the outdoors will find calm and beauty in the less travelled trails that bring you to fire towers and numerous waterfalls. Enthusiasts can enjoy longer treks like the Cranberry 50 or cycling routes that climb mountains or coast rolling rural landscapes. Visitors can easily plan an adventure and earn badges and patches by logging experiences on

Fishing enthusiasts can enjoy a huge range of lakes, ponds and streams throughout St. Lawrence County, from summertime angling to winter ice fishing. Others can experience the beauty of the water from the shore, watching ocean-going ships pass through the locks on the Seaway and enjoying all of the boating and recreation that comes with being on the water.

St. Lawrence County is yet to be discovered, making its trails, courses, and bed and breakfast properties authentic and unique to visitors. A local feel with farm-to-table experiences is met with close encounters with nature that help introduce the love of the outdoors to all ages and abilities in a safe and comforting way.

Rainy day activities like a visit to the Nicandri Nature Center, North Country Children’s Museum, or Frederic Remington Museum provide robust cultural experiences without the crowds. Self-guided experiences like the Hammond Barn Quilt Trail or a visit to Singer Castle, located on an island in the St. Lawrence River, top off the many ways to discover the St. Lawrence Valley.

St. Lawrence County has something for everyone, anytime of the year.
