Fulton Chain Lakes

Local nameFulton Chain Lakes
LocationNew York, USA

The Fulton Chain of Lakes is a string of eight lakes located in the Adirondack Park in upstate New York, United States. The chain is the dammed-up Moose River, and the dam which creates the chain holds back nearly 6.8 billion US gallons of water. The lakes are located in Herkimer and Hamilton Counties. Inlet, Old Forge, and Eagle Bay are towns on them. The chain begins near Old Forge and ends before it reaches Raquette Lake. The lakes are named for Robert Fulton, inventor of the steamboat, who proposed connecting the lakes to create an Adirondack canal. They are suitable for pontoon boats, kayaks, and motorboats. The chain is part of the 740-mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail, which begins on First Lake and ends in Fort Kent, Maine.
