4 very nice remote campsites on the S.E. side of the island. Wake up to stunning sunrises and spectacular views of the Green Mountains. Spacious sites with fire rings. Shade is limited at certain times of the day. Nice hiking trails nearbye. These sites are separate from the State Park, even though reservations can only made by calling Burton Island. These sites are maintained by the park on behalf of Lake Champlain Paddlers Trail.
One of three neighboring island parks in Lake Champlain’s “inland sea”(along with Burton Island and Knight Island), Woods Island became Vermont's forty-fifth state park in 1985. Measuring one mile long and a quarter-mile wide, 125-acre Woods Island provides a unique habitat for a rich variety of plant life, including many species that are rare or threatened in Vermont.
There is no ferry service to the island and visitors must make their own arrangements. There are no docks; visitors must either beach their boat or anchor off. The beach tends to be fairly rocky, except for a point along the east shore, from which the walk to campsites is between one-quarter and three-quarters of a mile.
Woods Island is a“remote area” campground. Remote area campsites, while beautiful, are not for everybody. Sanitary facilities are minimal, and there is no potable water supply. Each campsite does have a fire ring and a nearby composting toilet. The island’s five campsites are situated around the two-mile shoreline, and are connected by a trail system. This gives you great privacy, but it also means you’re going to have to walk and carry your own gear from wherever you come ashore. If it is work, it is worth it! Camping is by reservation only on designated sites. Reservations(2-night minimum) Fires are permitted in designated fire rings only. Parking: Kill Kare State Park is the best place to park and get directions for boating to Woods Island, Knight Island or Burton Island.
My family has been camping at Rollins Pond for years. With the coronavirus concerns, they have made changes to their cleaning schedules and social distancing rules. While there this year, my site was right across from one of the bathrooms. They were there at least twice a day to clean them and they did a great job with keeping the facilities clean, minus the usual bugs and spiders you find in them.
Quiet, clean park. To get to this campground you enter Fish creek park campground. Sites are large, wooded, most on the water. I stayed in the “a” section which is the southern side. Very quiet. No cell service. Saw many dogs. Mine loved our own little beach at the back of our campsite. Perfect for paddleboards, canoes, kayaks (these can also be rented at the boat launch)Bathrooms are so clean! Have already booked a site next summer
If your looking for a good campground in the Adirondacks, look no further. This place is it ! You hear the word “pond” and you might think of a small body of water however this “pond” is massive. It’s more like a lake. There are many campsites along the water. One in which we had. It was nice splashing around in the water right at our campsite. Even better was watching the sun set over it. The campground offered canoe/kayak rentals. We rented one for an afternoon and paddled around. Again this pond is soooo large that we didn’t even make it as far out as we wanted. Not too far outside the campground is a little local store where you can find many necessities. While we were in the Adirondacks we visited White Face Mountain which had a lift to take you up the mountain. It was amazing. The very top though is significantly colder so maybe bring a sweater. We also visited several small towns and shops, played some putt-putt and went toured the Winter Olympic museum.
