Within the heart of NYS only wilderness canoe region, 58 bodies of water, non-motorized and annually stocked... The Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat is the only destination lodge on the secluded shores of Lake Clear Ð famous in Adirondack lore for its "sportsmen fishingÓ - so much so a lure was named after it: the Lake Clear Wobbler. An anglerÕs treasure in summer and an ice fishing haven in winter. But that is only the beginning: we are the Adirondack Great Camp base lodge to NYS only wilderness canoe region and a fishing paradise.
