Schroon Lake was formed from glaciers and when the ice melted (some 12,0000 years ago), the lower elevations filled in with glacial melt water and became lakes.   Some lakes were formed when ice dams broke and the water flowed farther down slope, filling the low lying areas.  More than a dozen streams enter Schroon Lake, with most of the water flowing from Schroon River.  Water also enters from precipitation, groundwater and surface run off.

Nine miles long, motorized lake, and stocked well, our lake offers smallmouth and largemouth bass action in the summer (check out the rocky shores or deep waters, or the weedy areas for largemouth bass!).  The Northern Pike have been the best ever (check out the weedy areas).  The DEC have been socking our lake annually with lake trout and landlocked salmon (or Salmo salar).    Summer or winter, Schroon Lake provides sport for the angler.  The lake has two public boat launches (Glendale Road, Horicon and Dock Street, Schroon Lake).  Schroon Lake has been rated among the top lakes for:  Bass, trout, and salmon.
