Tug Hill is a 2,100-square-mile rural and remote region of New York State, located between Lake Ontario and the Adirondacks. The region is heavily forested and receives the heaviest snowfall in the eastern United States. The headwaters of several major rivers spring from the region’s core forests. The region consists of 41 towns (containing 19 villages) in portions of Jefferson, Lewis, Oneida, and Oswego counties. With just over 100,000 people, about 50 people per square mile, one of Tug Hill’s most notable characteristics is its relative lack of people.
