Awesome Campsite in the Heart of the Adirondacks

Nice sites on a beautiful little mountain lake, many lakefront sites for boat owners to enjoy. Make sure you have what you need though, it's a ride for supplies if you don't.

Base Camp

Gorgeous campsite that we used as our base camp to hike Marcy. Technically, I don't recommend this as there are plenty of sites at the base of Marcy and this is an hour drive away. However, it's an amazing spot and you can't go wrong with anything in the 'dacks. We got unlucky with the weather, but the fog in the lake made for some good pictures. I believe we paid around $30/night for standard no hookup site peak season, but we didn't have neighbors on either side!

Jump off point for Upper Works

Only stayed one night before hiking the Santanonis, but the lakeside site was awesome

Wet but beautiful!

We got rained out!! Our site did have good drainage and ample tree cover so that helped. Easy access to buy firewood on the road into the campground.

Harris Lake

This campground was beautiful and so peaceful! We had a wonderful campsite with access to the water. Plenty of hiking nearby also! We hiked Goodnow Firetower down the road from the campground.
