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.
Campsite was phenomenal beautiful scenery and weather, the ground and tree cover were great and just enough privacy. Bathrooms, showers, and water were all accesable and the staff is accomodatin. Best site I have ever had I would return.
With most campsites sitting a few feet from the lake itself, it is perfect for those with a kayak, stand up paddle board or canoe. However, do not go here if you are looking for privacy. Campsites are very close together and there are limited trees or plants to create any barriers. Thankfully, everyone I encountered was very kind and welcoming. There are many lakes in this area so lots of opportunity for water activities. The bathrooms were adequate and they had recycling available as well.
easy check in, nice site but a bit crowded. we lucked out with no neighbors for night two of our stay. sites huddle the shores of Fish Creek Pond, local general store very close can provide anything you need. additionally, small food trucks come thru with snacks.
My husband and I live about 3 hours from this campground and it's definitely worth the trip. All sites are water sites and there aren't many RV's. The fishing is great and there's a trading post around the corner that has everything you need.
