The Adirondacks and Thousand Islands Travel Guide


Ticonderoga is an Iroquois term meaning "land of many waters," and Ticonderoga,30 mi northeast of Bolton's Landing, lives up to its name. It's between Lakes George and Champlain, and the LaChute River runs through town. The French started building a fort in this strategic location in the mid-18th century. Today Fort Ticonderoga is a key attraction in the area.
