Most of the lake is in the Eastern end of the Town of Clifton, but a small part of the east side of the lake is in the Town of Piercefield and a small part of the west side of the lake is in the Town of Fine. The lake is entirely in the south part of Saint Lawrence County, New York. On a north arm of the lake is the community of Cranberry Lake.

Piercefield is in the southeast corner of the county and is southeast of

Massawepie Lake is located in the Adirondack Mountains of
New York State, U.S., and a Boy Scout camp surrounding the lake. Lake
Massawepie is located in the town of Piercefield, in southern St. Lawrence
County, New York, approximately 12 miles (19 km) southwest of the village of
Tupper Lake, New York. The lake is approximately 750 acres (3.0 km2), at an
elevation of approximately 1700 feet (520 m) above sea level, and flows south
into one of the tributaries of the Grasse River. The name of the lake itself is
Iroquois origin, meaning "the beaver's lake".
One of most notable geographic features is the Massawepie
Mire located immediately to the south of the lake. It is bordered by two long
north-south eskers. Hundreds of acres in size, the bog is one of the largest of
its kind in the Eastern United States and is almost entirely on the Boy Scout
In 1890, the Childwold Park House, commonly known as the
Childwold Hotel, opened on the shoreline of Massawepie Lake, just east of the
main flagpole of the current camp. In the days before air-conditioning,
upperclass residents of New York City would retreat to the Adirondacks to
escape the summer heat. Visitors to Childwold Park would take the New York
Central Railroad north from Utica and get off at Childwold Station. From there
they would take a 7-mile (11 km) trip along the Carriage Road to the hotel. The
hotel closed in 1909.
