Complimentary Watercraft

A family enjoying a pedalboat ride at a lake near High Peaks Resort

Mirror Lake is a spectacular natural wonder to take in during a visit to Lake Placid year-round, so naturally, playing on Mirror Lake is heralded by guests as a must during a stay at High Peaks Resort. In the summer, use our complimentary paddling equipment, including kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and pedalboats to glide along its calm surface as the sun comes up, or paddle off into the sunset after a day of Adirondack adventures.

Boats and watercraft are available from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

*Please Note: Due to safety concerns, our boats and SUPs are only available for use through September 30, 2023.
