Ballston Lake is located in the Town of Ballston, Saratoga County. This lake offers excellent warm water fishing. Ballston Lake is long narrow lake with overall temperatures too warm for any coldwater fish to survive.

Camp Boyhaven faithful say goodbye

“This is probably the last time we’ll all see each other together again,” said Paul Chiarello, 25, who attended the camp as a Boy Scout before becoming a counselor in high school."

"A combination of declining attendance and a lack of resources to maintain the facilities at Boyhaven have led the Boy Scouts of America to negotiate the property’s sale to the town of Milton."
