Long Lake is located in the 140 mile long Raquette River. Fun fact, the Raquette River flows north for fourteen miles. W.H.H. Murray, a frequent visitor in the late 1800’s once said, “if you desire to see some of the finest scenery imagine, pass up the Raquette to Long Lake and when, some two miles up the lake, turn your face toward the north, and you will behold what is worth the entire journey to see.” The Town of Long Lake was first settled in the 1830s by Joel Plumley, David Keller and E. H. St. John. Plumleys and Kellers still reside in Long Lake, and if you visit Long Lake, you'll join the throngs of families that return year after year, generation after generation.
