Bog River/Lows Lake
Canoeists may enter the Bog River at Lows Lower Dam and paddle up the
slow-moving river approximately
14.5 miles to the west shore of Lows Lake, where a canoe carry leads to
Big Deer Pond and the upper
reaches of the Oswegatchie River. The route continues downstream to
Inlet, where it becomes unnavigable.
The only major obstruction is High Falls, although beaver dams are
often encountered and two minor rapids
might not be navigable during periods of low water.Located off of a
short gravel road, off of State Rt. 421,
at Lows Lower Dam. This road may be gated in the spring to protect it

This leisurely hour and a half canoe paddle during periods of moderate
to high water is located just inside
and outside of the western boundary of the Adirondack Park and ends
above Lampson Falls. By the time you
hear the sound of Lampson Falls, you should see a large rock and
use-worn area on the west bank of the
river. Lampson Falls are broad and shallow, and are not preceded by
rapids or tricky currents of any kind.
Your family will want to get out of the canoe to walk the path to get a
better look at the falls. This is a 5.5 mile
Located on County Rt. 38, northwest of the St. Lawrence County
hamlet of Degrasse, look for a yellow on
brown sign for the DEC area: Degrasse State Forest, on the
northeastern side of the road to the launch
Always leave an area the way it was before you got there - Lets keep the Adirondacks Waterways Clean!!
