    • Long Lake Geocaching:

      HEADS YOU WIN. TAILS YOU WIN

      You simply can’t lose with “Gee O, Where is the Coin Cache” A treasure hunt in Long Lake”

      This coin is your reward for completing a treasure hunt puzzle geo caching trail throughout the hamlet involving among the many locations, area businesses which operate most if not all of the year. We have restaurants, stores, gas stations, specialty shops and gift shops all involved in the “Gee O, Where is the Coin Cache”

      Each coordinate has a box which contains a question. You simply solve the puzzle question and go on to the next location listed. Each puzzle answer give you one of the coordinate numbers to the final geo cache location.

      You start your treasure hunt at N 43o 58′ 04.9″ W 074o 25′ 09.4″. Open the door and the first geo cache box will have the coordinates of all the other sites. Have fun and please be respectful of private property, our town’s property and our area businesses. If you find something wrong with a box, please contact the business or the Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department at 518-624-3077 or longlake@telenet.net.

    • Midwinter Geocaching Event:

      Mid-February, Long Lake Town Hall. Geocachers from all over converge on Long Lake to hunt for treasure via snowshoe, snowmobile, cross-country skiing. A dedicated geocacher in Long Lake donates his time and efforts for the fun sport of it all. Look for spontenous geocaching camping trips in the cold frosty air. Don’t be tripped up by geocache’s hidden at the bottom of a frozen lake, you’ll just have to come back in the summer time. Check back often for information about 2014’s Geocache Gathering in Long Lake. Family friendly, if you’ve never tried it, Shane Holmes teaches workshops at the event so everyone has a chance to try it. Great way to get the kids outdoors.
