A beautiful scenic spot in Northville, NY with a remote feel!
This would be a great overnight for anyone who wants to try primitive camping. The trailhead parking is a lot on the opposite side of the road. It is located where the Northville-Placid Trail crosses the road. Just past 0.2 miles in the path forks. A turn left will give you your first view of the lake in 200 feet. Turning right will also lead to the lake at 0.3 miles and at least three primitive campsites. This section of shoreline offers large boulders, mossy rock ledges and hemlocks. There are also informal campsites along the southwest shore.
All but ten percent of the shoreline is state owned. Lapland Lake Nordic Ski and Vacation Resort owns the ten percent. That is a great place to cross-country ski and snowshoe.
