Location Details: Adirondacks State Park - Bog River Flow State-owned lands along the Bog River between Lows Lower and Upper Dams and at Lows Lake offer canoeists a unique opportunity to enjoy over 14.5 miles of unencumbered scenic waters with only one short carry around Lows Upper Dam. For the more adventuresome, a carry of approximately 3.5 miles from the west end of Lows Lake to the Oswegatchie River will be rewarded with an approximately 16-mile trip down that river to Inlet, with only a short carry above High Falls. Numerous beaver dams occur around High Falls. Navigability of this route was established by the two dams built by A. A. Low in 1903 (lower dam) and 1907 (upper dam). Originally constructed to produce electricity, these structures now provide a quality recreational experience enhanced by the department's prohibition on using mechanically propelled vessels between the two dams. Primary public access to the area is by a short gravel road off State Route 421 to Lows Lower Dam, where a canoe may be launched. This road may be gated in the spring to protect it during frost-out. Alternate canoe access is available at Horseshoe Lake Outlet. Camping: Thirty-nine numbered campsites have been constructed and designated (site number, fire ring and round 4.5-inch yellow marker) for public use on a first come, first served basis.
Wiki Excerpt:The Bog River, also called the Bog River Flow is a 18-mile (29 km) river that originates near the sources of the Oswegatchie River, in Hamilton County, New York in the Adirondacks, and flows through Lows Lake and Hitchens Pond, ending at the Bog River Falls at the entrance to Tupper Lake. [1] For much of its length is is flat water owing to two hydroelectric dams built by A. Augustus Low early in the 20th century. There are forty established campsites. The stretch from Tupper Lake to Hitchens pond has been designated as a Scenic River by the State of New York. [2] The river is part of the Five Ponds and the Round Lake Wilderness Areas.
