The Village history is intricately tied to Glens Falls located just to the north across the Hudson River form our earliest times. The Indian tribes of the Mohawks drove the Algonquians from the upper Hudson Valley reportedly in the late woodland period. (c.16th century), this area was known as a winter hunting grounds. The trail known as the “Great Carry” (today the path of Route 9) was the area for portage between Glens Falls and Fort Edward. As time progressed the river became a major conduit of merchant material supplies, namely logs from the Adirondacks that were floated down river to this area for distribution to various lumber mills and eventually paper mills that sprung up on both sides of the river.
Moreau Lake State Park’s lake lies amid hardwood forests, pine stands, and rocky ridges. Shady groves of trees shelter picnic grounds and a pavilion overlooking the lake. Wooded campgrounds are quiet and secluded, offering facilities for group campers, as well as tent and trailer sites. Two pavilions, each with a 120-person capacity and a 20’x30′ tent which can accommodate up to 75 people, may be reserved on a daily basis. The sandy beach, nature, hiking and cross-country ski trails, opportunities for boating, fishing and ice fishing, and proximity to the Saratoga Springs and Lake George areas make the park attractive to visitors.
Learn how “these dark and silent caves” inspired author James Fenimore Cooper to write one of his most famous and beloved novels, The Last of the Mohicans which was then made into a movie by Michael Mann in 1992. Above the cave is the Cooper’s Cave Bridge, which connects the Village of South Glens Falls and the City of Glens Falls.
Next to the bridge there is a viewing platform that offers information about James Fenimore Cooper and the Mohican tribe. When you visit the cave you can experience the protection that the Mohicans felt when they were hiding for their attempted escape.
