Reichards Lake, Raquet Lake, Town of Sand Lake Beach

You apparently need a permit to visit this beach if you are not a resident, which we did not know.  We got kicked out after taking a few pictures.

To get a permit you have to go to the Town Clerk’s Office, which is only open Monday through Friday, from 9am-4pm.  The address below is what they have listed on their website, though it doesn’t have an actual street number or directions, so…?  Call ahead, since this seems to be a public beach that isn’t easy for the public to actually visit.

Reichards Lake Road – NY 351
West Sand Lake, NY 12196
Phone: 518-674-2026 X22

You can get a day pass for $3 or a season pass for $25, though buying the day pass presumably means that you cannot use it to visit this beach on the weekend…as the office is closed.

This lake seems to be variously called either Reichards Lake or Raquet Lake.
