Located in the Western Adirondacks there is plenty of paddling and camping along this 6700 acre stretch of remote and wild beauty.

Located in Webb, NY the launch site offers ample parking, public bathrooms, store, gasoline, restaurant, lodging, boat, kayak & canoe rentals, riverboat and car ferry to Beaver River and 46 free primitive campsites.  The store has free maps available.

There is so much to explore as its approximately 10 miles long. We chose to head approximately 1 mile across the water to campsite #3 (known as Evergreen Landing).  The campsite was large and private.  From here we paddled toward the dam stopping along the way for a swim and rock jumping.

Heading past the dam we headed to Kettlehole (where campsite #1 is located).  We also stopped along shore here for a swim.  

We headed back checking out the dam on the way back.  We also hiked the nearby Stillwater Fire Tower located 2.5 miles away.

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!
