Copake Lake is a compelling body of shimmering water, located 95 miles north of New York City. It measures .8 sq miles in size, but the energy it brings to fishermen, boaters, waterskiers and paddle boarders and runners makes it a very special place. The community that surrounds the lake is also small but dynamic, ranging from Columbia County locals to farmers, artists and other transplants who’ve made the area their first, or second home.
Copake Lake’s shores are peppered with private docks and a marina, while the renowned Copake Country Club presides over its northwestern coast. The 6266-yard Championship golf course, architected by the legendary Devereaux Emmet, affords inspiring views of tranquil glassy mornings and vibrant summer afternoons from many of its lush, sloping fairways.
With golf, watersports, fine dining, beautiful walks and the funky vibes of downtown Hudson a short drive away, Copake Lake is the perfect place to enjoy whatever it is that fills your soul – for a weekend or a lifetime.
