Best Places for Leaf Peepin’ in the Adirondacks 🍂

Autumn is right around the corner and there are fewer places in the country that have as beautiful fall colors as the Adirondacks. With its rolling mountains and tall forests, this region of the country boasts some beautiful leaf-peeping opportunities for locals and tourists alike. 

We can never truly predict what the autumn season will bring in regards to fall foliage, but mild summers like we’ve had often bring in some of the best colors of the season. So we’re hoping this year will be no exception. Regardless of the reds, oranges, and yellows of Adirondacks in autumn, cozying up to a campfire with a blanket, a warm spiced latte, and a loved one is all the joy you need in life. 

If you’re traveling to the Adirondacks or if you’ve lived here your whole life, check out some of these places to see some gorgeous colors this fall season. 

Schroon Lake

Camp Tin Box sits along the Schoon River, so Schroon Lake is one of our favorite leaf-peeping spots every autumn. If you’re staying at our camp this fall, check out some of our festive-themed weekends and make sure to stop to see these changing leaves. 

Lake George

Another quaint and colorful spot to see this season is Lake George. It’s a must-see no matter which time you’re visiting the Adirondacks. If you’re heading there, you’ll also be able to enjoy shops, restaurants, and lots of fall-themed events.

If you’re looking for a scenic drive and not an overnight stay, then try the vistas around Blue Ridge Road. They offer stunning views for everyone to enjoy regardless of their hiking ability.

Another beautiful town near Camp Tin Box is Pottersville. Sitting just 15 minutes south of camp, Potterville is a quaint town that offers beautiful views during the fall season and is much less busy than Lake George. It’s a great stop before checking in at Camp Tin Box if you’re coming from the south. Or a perfect little day trip to take while you stay.
