In the center of the Old Forge Region is the Fulton Chain of Lakes, a series of 13 connected lakes, and beyond Eighth Lake is Raquette Lake.
Of historic Interest, the Fulton Chain of Lakes is part of a river system originally dammed at Old Forge in about 1798. Water flowing through the Fulton Chain starting at Eighth Lake enters the middle branch of the Moose River at the Old Forge Dam. In 1933 the Civilian Conservation Corps established Camp No. 10 at Eighth Lake in Hamilton County, engaged in the improvement and extension of nearby Golden Beach on Raquette Lake, the development of a new campsite at Eighth Lake, and the improvement of canoe routes and trails in that section.
