A tiny hamlet in Warren County, Chestertown offers plenty of fun for visitors, despite it’s tiny size. Nearby are other Adirondack destinations that mean Chestertown is a popular stopping-off point.
Both Friends Lake and Loon Lake are great for swimming, cruising the waters on a boat, or hanging out on the shores with a picnic. The lakes are also particularly beautiful at sunset.
Horseback riding is a popular pastime here too, with a local family-run ranch hosting tours to explore the Adirondacks through miles of trails, forests and fields. Elsewhere, seasonal fun can be had in the nearby Dynamite Hill Park area with acres of land pefect for hiking or skiing and ice skating in winter.
After a long day exploring, check out the farmers' markets and local restaurants to savor local produce and ingredients.
Chestertown is best visited in the late spring and early summer for ideal weather to be outdoors.
