ADK Lakeside Camping on Forked Lake - Kayak/Canoe to the campsite

Forked Lake Campground

*** THERE WILL BE A NOMINAL CAMPING COST AS WELL THAT IS TBA*** ONCE YOU PAYMENT IS MADE YOU WILL BE MOVED TO ATTENDING*** THERE IS A 12 PERSON LIMIT FOR THIS EVENT

This is one of my favorite drive in then paddle campground in the northeast. Join me at the gorgeous lakeside campground at one of the Adirondacks' best kept secrets -- Forked Lake Campground.

The campground's remoteness and beautiful surroundings offer a terrific wilderness experience. Its large, well-forested, lakeside campsites are unparalleled in privacy. Close your eyes and you can almost imagine that the forest is yours and yours alone. So what do we do here other than pretending we are on survivor? The campground offers numerous water-focused recreational opportunities, including canoeing, boating, and fishing. If your interests are more terrestrial in nature, there are miles upon miles of hiking trails in the area.

This is tent camping. You must have all the necessary camping gear and you must be able to bring and cook your own foods. We will have a fire pit available to cook. You must bring rain gear in case of rain.

The plan!

We'll meet Friday morning at the campground boat rental parking lot in front of the ranger station to check in to our campsite and to rent your choice of a kayak or canoe. Then we will go to the boat launch pick your rental and load your gear. We will PADDLE to our campsites to set up our tents and other gear. From here we can do as much or as little as we'd like until dinner that evening. Sunday we'll get up and make breakfast and can continue to explore what the campground and area has to offer.

What does it cost and how do I pay?

There will be a per person for the campsite fee that is TBA. The cost is for THREE nights of camping. Payment is via PayPal. To pay for your camping reservation, use this link XXXXXX (filled in later).

Space will be LIMITED so until I receive your payment your RSVP is not confirmed and your attendance is not guaranteed. Once I have confirmation of receipt of your payment I will move you to confirmed RSVP status.

But what do we eat?

To keep it simple, everyone is responsible for bringing what food and snacks they would like to eat and drink.

We will be cooking dinner Friday, and breakfast, lunch and dinner Saturday and Sunday, and breakfast Monday. Meals will be semi-communal, meaning bring what you would like to eat for yourself but perhaps also enough to share with a few other people. Simple to cook but interesting items are best.

This is BLACK BEAR country. We have to store our food in bear lockers at our campsites that measure 18" x 18" x 4' so pack accordingly. There is a carry in, carry out garbage policy in effect.

What else do I need to know?

• We will have lakeside campsites that are PADDLE ACCESS ONLY, meaning we will be renting canoes and ferrying our gear in. Canoe rentals are $20 per day and will be paid for ON SITE by yourself.

• If you are unsure what to pack, please ask.

• The campsites have pit/vault toilets, but no showers unfortunately. The lake is good for a wash if you bring environment friendly soap.

How to get there!

Forked Lake Campground

Long Lake, NY 12847
GPS Coordinates (Latitude, Longitude)[masked], [masked]

The campground is about a 5 hour drive from NYC and we'll need to carpool to the campground. When you RSVP, please indicate if need a ride. Or if you plan to drive, where you are coming from and how many passengers you can take. We'll then figure out our carpooling options, please be proactive and contact a driver directly rather than just saying where you need a ride from. Gas and tolls should be picked up by the passengers, also a cup of coffee for the driver is a nice gesture.
