On Alger Island you won’t be a cast away, but you might not want to come back to the mainland! Located on the Fourth Lake of the Fulton Chain of Lakes, Alger combines thrilling activity with stillness and serenity. Canoes, rowboats and motor boats are welcome on the lake. From the edge of a boat or the shore, simply admire the cornucopia of fish—or, cast a line and catch lake trout, brook trout, rainbow trout or Atlantic salmon. There is an impressive trail that winds around the island, that is kept up by the state—we love New York! Lean-to and tent sites are up for grabs. Alger Island will give you the experience of being on a relatively remote island without that whole volleyball bonding thing.

We were a group of 6 friends that camped on Alger Island for two nights in the end of August. The sites here are boat in sites and we have two canoes for 3 people each – we were able to fit all of our camping gear along with us in one go. It was very secluded with great views of the lake from out lean-to. The ground was very big – two picnic tables with enough room for our 8-person tent, and an outhouse not too far away. Our campground was partially shaded so there was enough coverage for when it drizzled a little. During the day we canoed around the lake and in the evening the water was at a nice temperature for a night swim! So far my favorite campsite in NY.
