This small and quiet campground is located on a picturesque lake with several hiking trails nearby.

This New York State Campground is located on Piseco Lake.  Many of the sites are on the lake.  The lake offers a nice paddle with a few outlets.  The sites are good sized and the facilities are clean.  

Near site 66 you will find a trail sign for Panther Mountain (Echo Cliffs).  This is a moderate round trip climb of 1.7 miles and offers beautiful views of the lake below.  Also a great morning hike to catch the sunset.  There are also several local hikes nearby.

The campground offers a beach and launch if you wanted to drop in a motorized boat.  

It costs $20.00 a night and reservations can be made at reserveamerica.com

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
