Spring is a breath of fresh air here at Lapland Lake! While we love ourwinter activities, we welcome the sounds of birds chirping and streams filling with spring melt water, letting us know warmer weather is on the horizon. Our private sandy beach on 70-acre Woods Lake is a peaceful, stunningly beautiful spot to pull up an Adirondack chair and watch nature at its best! Motors are prohibited on this pristine lake, and the shoreline – virtually undeveloped and protected by law – is a peaceful locale for loons, beavers, ducks, blue heron, and other wildlife. Guests enjoy a variety of activities including: birding, canoeing, hiking and biking.
Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center near Northville NY, in the Town of Benson, offers recreation and relaxation throughout the entire year, but there is something special about spring at Lapland Lake. With the snow gone and the flowers blooming, you can interact with the environment on a calmer level – appreciating the forest for the trees, following the cool mountain streams, and watching for wildlife.
Spring is also the season for paddlesports! Lapland Lake offers convenient shoreline access to Woods Lake. While the lake water in spring may still be a little too chilly for swimming, we offer the complimentary use of kayaks, canoes, row boats, and paddle boat. Bring your own fishing gear down to the lake and try your luck with the smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, perch, pickerel and bullhead with brook trout in our streams! Kids can enjoy the lakeside swingset and an abundance of complimentary sand toys. Woods Lake is an enjoyable walk or bike ride from the tupas and a gravel pathway allows for a nice stroll through Lapland Lake’s woodlands.
