Many city residents find they are restricted to what they can do inside the lakes surrounding the New York City area, but Mahopac Lake is an exception. This lake is not part of the New York City watershed, so locals are allowed to take their gas-powered watercrafts out on to the water. This makes the Mahopac Lake one of the most popular in the area when it comes to fishing, boating, and even annual tournaments that leave local anglers excited to show off their skills. Spend the day out on the lake with your family, and catch a delicious largemouth bass for dinner.
Mahopac Carmel Pumpki
Locals looking for a frightfully good time look forward to the annual Mahopac-Carmel Pumpkinfest. Each year, during the week leading up to Halloween, local pumpkin carvers gather together and design the perfect jack-o-lanterns. Carvers design everything from small pumpkin face to larger than life displays. You will find categories for all ages, making this the perfect family-friendly event to take part in. The pumpkin carving festivities lead up to the actual festival day that starts in the early evening for children to enjoy. As the sun sets the older members of the community come out to enjoy trick-or-treating, food, festivities, and more.
Jumpin Jeepers Keeps
Having children means finding things to keep them entertained on days when normal activities just will not cut it.

The two-story play structure provides hours of endless entertainment to children of all ages, as well as adults who are kids at heart. The center has a spot just for toddlers, as well as an arcade for the bigger kids. Adults can sit off to the side in their own area relaxing while watching the little ones play.
