Canoe Camping at Its Best

There are a few camping sites and one lean-to that I know of in this area. We happened upon it on our way to the seventh lake campground and ended up staying for two nights. We accessed the sites by water on a canoe trip. There is a large sand bar within a very short walk which was a great place to hang out. Seventh lake is pretty quiet but there were a few boats there both days we visited.  There is a trail that connects the campsites to Seventh Lake Rd. and to the Bug Lake trail and we had some Hikers travel through the campsite. If you are looking for the site from the water, look for a HUGE rock and there will be a sign that reads camp here, there are two more campsites, one with a lean-to within a short walk as well.

Nicks Lake

Awesome campground

Dispersed camping on stillwater reservoir

Primitive site on the beautiful south eastern end of Stillwater. A short hike in to a great beach for swimming or paddling.

We’ve stayed here many times in tents and hammock tents. The swimming is fantastic- water is clean and clear.

Because you can’t make a reservation here sometimes there’s competition for a spot. There is a good fire circle with space all around. The trail down to the beach is only about a hundred feet, but it is downhill.

This site is close to the trailhead for the Stillwater firetower, an original Adirondack firetower.

Primitive dispersed camping. 1/4 mile walk in, lovely quiet lake

This is a small primitive site. No services, but a very beautiful spot. There’s a small fire ring, and access to the lake for swimming or fishing. 

Sunday lake has always been lovely and quiet and a great place to take youth campers. 

Take Stillwater rd. to McCarty road, the trail is 0.3 miles To Sunday lake. Space to park two cars or a small RV off the road.

separated sites, quiet, clean

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.

Sleepaway camp, family camp, day use

Beaver Camp (or, officially Adirondack Mennonite Camping Assoc.), is a classic summer youth sleep-away camp on Beaver Lake. Sleeping in cabins with bunk beds, swimming, canoes, and a high ropes course, gathering around the campfire to end the day- Beaver Camp has it all.

Weekend and week long programming for youth and families, or site rental of cabins and platform tents is available, as well as day use access to the beach and high ropes course.

This camp is a great way to access a beautiful area in a way customized for your family!

Adk paradise

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

Beautiful

Dense words between campsites

Amazing campground

get one of the spots right on the lake!

Spacious tree covered sites on a beautiful lake

We loved our stay at Limekiln Lake! We had site 270, which was close enough to walk down to the boat launch at night to look at the stars (and the Milky Way!) but a little too far to walk to the beach. Our site was spacious, with room for two cars, 4 kayaks, and two tents. The site features a picnic table (great condition) and a concrete fire pit (not so great condition, but it worked). Site 270 is just around the corner from the bathroom and water spigot, and feels very private within the rest of the campground. Behind the site is wooded forest, and the campsites on either side are far enough away to feel secluded. Because the site is surrounded by trees, we hung up multiple hammocks for a very cozy weekend! We walked around the campground and would love to snag one of the lakefront sites in future years! We spent a good deal of time out on the lake in our kayaks. The flies are actually pretty horrible- not sure if it’s a late year for them or if they’re just particularly bad this year, but they were relentless. The lake this time of year is beautiful and clear and a very nice temperature for dunking in. There’s a lot to explore out on the kayaks. If we had had more energy, we would’ve loved to bring the kayaks out at night to look at the stars. The campground is dog friendly, and our pup had a great time. Additionally, there are best boxes at each site, which was nice to store our coolers and garbage bag in. Unfortunately, our friends left a couple of closed bags of chips in there, and mice got into them, we think through a tiny crack. The bathrooms were pretty clean and had ample soap supply in this weird time of COVID. We didn’t check out the showers, but they did have them further down by the beach. Overall we loved this site!
