Get out there and live in it

There are so many joys in camping. The star-filled sky! The roaring fire! The roasted marshmallows! We have to be there.

The choices of campgrounds in Saranac Lake offer an unparalleled wilderness experience.

Would you like your own island that can only be reached by boat? We can do that! Look for Saranac Lake Islands campsites on Lower and Middle Saranac and in the St. Regis Wilderness Canoe Area. Would you like a wilderness site that also has showers, canoe rentals, and children’s activities? We can do that too, with the complex of state operated campgrounds which includes Rollins Pond, Buck Pond, Meacham Lake, Fish Creek Pond, and Meadowbrook.

Your Base Camp
