Mac's Canoe Livery & Outfitter

Experience the adirondacks

Break away. Paddle. Reconnect.



Mac's is a family-owned and operated canoe livery and guide service located in the heart of the Adirondack Park. Lake Clear is on the edge of the St. Regis Canoe Wilderness about 10 miles from the village of Saranac Lake and 20 miles from Lake Placid. We can assist you in planning your own canoe adventure. Your vacation is our business! 


Upcoming Events



Canoe & Kayak Rentals

The best way to see the Adirondack park is in a Canoe. Renting one of Mac's lightweight canoes will allow you to experience some of the best paddling in the country. 


Guided Trips


Mac's team of experienced guides are here for you. Whether you are interested in an introductory paddling lesson or an excursion into deep wilderness, we have the guide for you.


Group Rates

Paddling is a great solo event, but it is even better in a group. Bring your friends for a weekend get-a-way, your youth group for a team building trip, or your corporate crew for a unique retreat. 

As one goes through life one learns that if you donโ€™t paddle your own canoe, you donโ€™t move.
