"The Town Of Colton... A Natural Beauty"

The Town of Colton, NY is one of the largest in New York State.  From the hamlets of Colton and South Colton, near to the business and shopping centers of Potsdam and Canton, the Town rises to meet the beautiful, scenic wilds of the Adirondack Park.

The Township is blessed with natural resources and scenic beauty.  Seven lakes have been formed by dams along the Raquette River, which provide recreation for boating and anglers, as well as power generation to help support all of New York.  Campers and snowmobilers enjoy the many miles of maintained trails throughout the township.

With our civic pride, excellent schools, highways and ease of access to business and shopping centers, it's no wonder that Colton is one of the most vibrant towns in St. Lawrence County.
