Located just 20 miles west of Plattsburgh, the Town of Dannemora is nestled in the northern Adirondack Park. First settled in 1838, Dannemora has grown to become a quaint mountainside community.


The Adirondack Mountains, lakes and forests surrounding Dannemora all offer magnificent scenery and a wide range of year-round outdoor sports and recreation.


Explore Chazy Lake where you can enjoy a relaxing day of fishing, paddling and swimming at Chazy Lake Beach. The Chazy Lake Boat Launch, located off Route 374, provides easy access for boaters at the northwest end. Once the water freezes, ice fishing and snowmobiling on Chazy Lake become extremely popular activities during the quiet winter months.
