About

The Town of Lake Pleasant and Village of Speculator make up a close-knit community of less than 1,000 full-time residents. Located in the south-central section of the Adirondack Park, this community is dominated by numerous lakes, ponds, mountains, and thousands of acres of New York State Forest Preserve, all of which contribute to the area's unprecedented scenic beauty. Both state routes that intersect in Speculator have been awarded "Scenic Byway" status by the federal government and have been designated the Southern Adirondack Trail (Route 8) and the Adirondack Trail (Route 30). Lake Pleasant and Speculator have a healthy mix of full and part-time residents, visitors, businesses, and recreational resources. While tourism is the engine that drives the local economy, a new comprehensive plan seeks to stabilize employment levels by attracting and encouraging year 'round businesses (see Zoning for complete comprehensive plan and zoning maps).
