Hamilton County

Hamilton County is a county located in the U.S. state of New York. Its county seat is Lake Pleasant. It is one of only two counties that lie entirely within the Adirondack Park (Essex is the other). As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,836, making it the least populous county in New York. It is also the most sparsely populated county in the eastern half of the United States, with a population density of just over three people per square mile.

Hamilton County is in the north central part of the state, northwest of Albany. It lies entirely within Adirondack Park and consists mostly of publicly owned parkland. As the tourist folk will tell you, there is no permanent traffic light in the county.

Located at the southern tip of Long Lake, Lewey Lake is a 2 1/2 mile "quiet water" lake protected by the mountains of the West Canada Lake Wilderness to the east. It is home to the Lewey Lake Campground, and you will either have to camp there, get a day use pass, or have an Empire Passport to explore this lake.

The Moose River Plains Wild Forest is located in the Towns of Webb and Ohio in Herkimer County and the Towns of Arietta, Inlet, Long Lake, Lake Pleasant and Morehouse in Hamilton County. Numerous lakes and streams, including a portion of the traditional Adirondack canoe route from Old Forge to Saranac Lake, the South Branch of the Moose River, the Cedar River Flow, as well as numerous lakes and ponds, provide for a variety of water based recreational activities. During winter months snowmobiling is the major activity in this unit. The Limekiln Lake‐Cedar River Road provides a connection between the hamlets of Inlet and Indian Lake. DEC also maintains several other roads in the unit, and provides numerous individual camping sites along this road system. This provides a type of outdoor recreation between that of a developed campground and primitive tent camping.
