Old Forge is the accessible, affordable Adirondacks, providing families the best experiences of the Adirondack Park. We specialize in renewing the human spirit. Rustic yet comfortable, quiet yet thrilling.

Since the 1890s, Old Forge has treated families to the natural majesty and magic of the six million acre Adirondack Park.

The southwestern gateway to the Adirondacks, Old Forge is the heart of Webb, the largest township in New York. 500 square miles of natural beauty. It is the accessible, affordable, less commercial side of the Adirondacks, where solitude lives five minutes from Main Street.

Renowned as the Paddling Capital of the Adirondacks, Old Forge sits at the foot of the Fulton Chain of Lakes, and offers relaxing paddling on 80 lakes, ponds and rivers, as well as Class V white water on the Moose River. Hundreds of miles of family friendly hiking trails trace through the forests and up to gentle mountain summits, some with restored fire watch towers open to the public.

One doesn’t need to possess the Adirondack gene; a visit to Old Forge will manifest your appreciation for the restorative power of nature and how it renews the human spirit. Our neighboring communities of Eagle Bay, Big Moose and Stillwater add to our woods and waters personality. Connectivity has another meaning in Old Forge, where families connect with each other. Old Forge in the Adirondacks. Magic.
