Beautiful Canada Lake is located in the Town of Caroga, Fulton County, on the southern tip of New York's Adirondack Mountains. Located mid-way between neighboring Pine Lake and East and West Caroga Lakes, Canada Lake is a popular Adirondack destination. Almost 300 homes, cabins and camps populate the shores of Canada Lake and adjoining Green, West and Lilly Lakes. Most residences in Caroga, NY are seasonal.

The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
