Waddington, N.Y., offers a unique blend of rural Victorian charm, American and local heritage, and a variety of recreational activities in an international setting.  Nestled along the mighty St. Lawrence River marking New York’s northern border with Canada, Waddington has a front-row seat to view passing ships on the St. Lawrence Seaway, the fishermen reeling in northern pike and muskie, and some of the world’s most breathtaking sunsets.

With hundreds of waterfront acres along the St. Lawrence, Coles Creek, Grasse River and Sucker Brook, Waddington provides plenty of opportunity for boating, water skiing, fishing and tubing.  Coles Creek State Park and Campground offers a scenic and quiet vista along the St. Lawrence.  The Waddington Recreation Park and Beach is a favorite summer destination for many looking to enjoy swimming along the sandy beach, picnicking, a playground and beach house for a family day of fun and relaxation.  Experience rural northern New York hospitality at cozy Bed & Breakfasts, as well as exquisitely fine dining at local restaurants. 

Waddington is just minutes away from five colleges and universities in St. Lawrence County, the majestic Adirondack Mountains, the Thousand Islands, large Canadian cities including Ottawa (the capital) and large shopping malls in Massena and Watertown.

Waddington is also rich in local heritage, flavored with its connection to American history.  The village of Waddington was originally named Hamilton for Alexander Hamilton, the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, who was a business associate of the town’s first landowners.  Part of the original Waddington village was relocated during the 1950's, as part of the excavation to create the St. Lawrence Seaway.
