This place is my wife’s favorite place to go camping. She’s been going every summer since she was a baby and now we send our kids with our parents on their yearly trip if we can’t make it. Every site is on the water which is perfect for canoeing, kayaking, boating, etc. The atmosphere is unmatched for any site I’ve ever been to.
Waterfront camping available. Sites suitable for tents and for RVs
Deep in the heart of the Adirondacks this campground is huge and great for families, couples and groups of friends alike. Every single campsite sits on the water so you don’t have to fight to get a water site. You can dock your boat right at your site and fish off the shore too. The yoo hoo calls at dusk are really fun and listening to the loons call is amazingly peaceful.
Visited in the fall after the summer rush. Very quiet and peaceful. Large sites. Lots of hiking space!
This is a clean, well maintained campground. It was a little crowded but surprisingly quiet for the number of people. Lots of kids biking and a nice trail behind the sites to walk or run. There was a coffee vendor that came through in the morning, which was kind of fun. It is a pretty lake with lots of activity. Take a bike!
It has everything a campground should have. Make sure you bring your bikes. It has a great bike path. The swimming is great. It has an outdoor stage. The only drawback to Fish Creek Pond is that it is very difficult to get reservations. Our grandkids had a great time.
the camp ground is beautiful right on the lake the water was 3 steps from just about every site there. very family oriented great for water sports or biking with kids. the reason I give it 3 stars is it's not very secluded and there is a lot of noise during the day, luckily I spent most of my day hiking the mountains near by. all in all I would definatly recommend it if your looking for a family vacation with a beautiful lake view and friendly people. but if solitude is what your looking for I would find a more private camp.
Bike path, kayak rentals, close to Lake Placid Olympic center, Wild Center in Tupper Lake
I have stayed here many times over the years, usually for a 10-18 day stretch at a time. This is one of my favorite places. Most sites are right on the water. Square pond is a lovely little lake that connects to a larger lake (Upper Saranac I believe) by passing through a canal. This campground has great facilities. There are restrooms located convieniently throughout the park so you never have to walk more than a few sites no matter where you are. There are hot showers located at one end of the park and a dump station for RVs. The restrooms and showers are cleaned daily. There is a great little general store just outside the park that sells pretty much anything you could want. Sites are equipped with a table and fireplace (most have grates). There are vendors that drive through the park daily selling wood, ice cream (from an old fashioned wagon, get the moose tracks!), and ice. There is a boat supplier that travels the lake every morning and evening dropping off and picking up kayak and canoe rentals. If you love water front camping this is for you! The park is pet friendly but you need to show proof of vaccines. There are great things to do nearby like the Adirondack Museum, Lake Placid, and beautiful hiking spots. You can have power boats and jets skis on the lake as well as non motorized boats. Some of the best sunsets I have ever viewed happened right here. Quiet hours are taken very seriously and rangers walk the park at night warning rowdy fireside folks to quiet down. However, as dusk turns to night, you can always count on the chorus of yodels going back and forth across the lake. This is a wonderful spot! Check it out! You won’t be sorry! Oh, but sites go on sale nine months in advance through reserve America and the best spots wind up booked for the season pretty quickly.
Probably my favorite ADK campground. Beautiful lake, semi-private sites most lakefront, tons of hiking and close proximity to some great Adirondack outdoor activities. A much more quiet place compared to its rowdy next door neighbor Rollins Pond.
