Until 1976, the state leased the right to construct tents on the shores and islands of many Adirondack lakes. Below is a list of those who held permits on Lower Saranac Lake in 1961, along with a map of the locations of those permits. 1 For more information on the experiences of those using the sites, see Platform Tents.  For a map of the sites, see the bottom of the page.
