Canoers & Kayakers this is the place to camp for you! There are several waterways directly accessible from your campsite to some of the best ponds in the Adirondacks.

Located in the Saranac Lake region there is a natural sand shoreline and water access for most campsites. There are countless rivers and ponds which allow use of motorized and non-motorized boats. The campsites are ideally located on Fish Creek Pond and Square Pond.

The campsite offers a beach, playground, picnic area and hot showers. Located nearby is a great camp store for any essentials you may have forgotten. Canoe, kayak, and boat rentals are also nearby.

It is currently $22.00 per night and can accommodate tents to 40' RVs. Reservations can be made at reserveamerica.com.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Please DON’T bring firewood!

We have camped in NYS for years, and it is important for people to know that you should NOT bring firewood with you. It is NYS law that you can’t transport firewood more than 50 miles from its source. This is to protect our forests from invasive pests that have decimated forests in other places. Please change your packing list so it does not include firewood. Firewood can be purchased from local businesses near the campgrounds and sometimes in the campgrounds. That said, Fish Creek and Rollins Pond Campgrounds are wonderful. The canoeing is second to none and there is much to do in the area, including hikes for all abilities.

Buy firewood where you burn it!

Nice review of a great NY State campground. However, Your packing list includes “firewood”. PLEASE, whenever and wherever you camp, LEAVE YOUR FIREWOOD HOME! In NYS, it is ILLEGAL to bring untreated (not kiln-dried and certified) firewood into the state or move firewood more than 50 miles from it’s source. Moving firewood is the prime way invasive and tree-killing insects and diseases like Asian longhorned beetle, Emerald ash borer, Suothern Pine beetle and Oak wilt. Protect the trees and beauty of our campgrounds and forests by buying your camp wood from local sources. There are plenty of roadside firewood vendors near all state campgrounds. Our trees, campgrounds and forests thank you.

Amazing Place To Be

Super family friendly campground. Most the campsites are on the water. Lots of kayaking/canoeing trips you can do right from your campsite. Highly recommend.
