Strategic Advantages
Jefferson County is part of the Thousand Islands Region, which is a beautiful region on the New York-Canada border. The region boasts a geography that allows for endless hours of boating, camping, hiking, golfing and other recreational activities.
There are over 15 state parks dispersed among the shores of Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River and the islands nestled into those bodies of water. These state parks are great places for hiking, camping, fishing and anything else you would like to do to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
For the more adventurous types, the lakes and rivers of the region have resulted in numerous locations for activities such as scuba diving and whitewater rafting. On land, the New York winter brings plenty of snow for snowmobiling and skiing.
