Outdoor Recreation

Upcoming Events

Get out there!

Outdoor recreation is what Inlet is all about. Whether you are looking to spend a day on the water fishing, paddling, or simply relaxing — or if it's the Adirondack Mountains and trails that are calling your name — the opportunity to play in the great outdoors is never lacking in "the little town that could." So lace up those hiking boots or toss on your swimsuit and get out there!

At the end of another epic day, retreat back to town to grab some grub at one of our great restaurants, go shopping in our unique shops, or simply relax with friends and family as you enjoy a spectacular sunset from the shore of Fourth Lake.
