Get out there and live in it
There are so many joys in camping. The star-filled sky! The roaring fire! The roasted marshmallows! And the best part is, camping is a great way to extend a vacation budget and make one-of-a-kind family memories.
Unrivaled camping options
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.
Would you like a site that also has showers, canoe rentals, and children’s activities? We can do that too. Visit the state-operated campgrounds which include nearby Fish Creek, Rollins Pond, Buck Pond, and Meadowbrook.
Your base camp
Outdoor recreation is a big part of an Adirondack camping experience. When you're here it's easy to find a place to swim, canoe, boat, hike, and bike. Our camping offers a wild experience that is still not far from many great Saranac Lake attractions.
Leave No Trace
The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
