Information: The body of water called Lake Placid is in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York in the USA. It is approximately 2,170 acres, and has an average depth of about 50 feet. The lake borders the northern part of the village of Lake Placid, New York. The lake is a source of drinking water for the town, and maintaining water quality in the lake is a major local issue. The lake is fed by springs and mountain streams, and since most of the houses are unoccupied much of the year, the water remains clean. There are nearly 300 houses on the lake shore, and the majority of which can only be accessed by boat.
  • Boating
Local efforts to combat aquatic invasive species have been successful, aided by a boat cleaning station where powerboats are put into the water. The lake has produced record lake trout.
