Town of Northampton
Town of Northampton

Welcome to the Town of Northampton website.  This site enables people to find out about what is happening in and around town.

Located in Fulton County in Upstate New York, along the Great Sacandaga Lake, you can find lots to do -- whether it's boating, fishing, hiking, swimming, camping, or nearby cross country skiing.  For avid hikers, the Adirondack Trail runs through the Town of Northampton. We have one of New York State's finest State Park Campgrounds. We also offer a summer program for kids and youth groups at our local churches.  Winter time is full of snowmobiling, ice fishing, ice races on the lake, and many other fun activites.  The Town of Northampton is truly an all-season place to have fun or just to relax and get away from it all.

We are easy to find.  Just take NYS Route 30 North off the New York State Thruway and follow the signs.
