Lake Pleasant, Sacandaga Lake

Sacandaga Lake Sacandaga Lake

Lake Pleasant is Hamilton County's seat. It's about 4 miles west of the junction of NY 30 in Speculator, where NY 8 breaks off the double route. There is a lot of seasonal places so be careful during summer. NY 8 goes north of Lake Pleasant (lake) as you come into the hamlet after crossing the outlet. The hamlet is near the west end of the lake, while Speculator is on the east side. There is a 40mph zone uphill for about 3/4's of a mile. At the center is the court house, sheriffs and the jail. Also, there is a public golf course, very popular for the Speculator - Lake Pleasant crowd in season.

Sacandaga Lake is a beautiful lake right off of NY 8 just north of Lake Pleasant Center behind the Lake Pleasant Golf Club. This lake is not to be confused with the Great Sacandaga Lake near Northville in Fulton County.
