Dust off your canoe and hiking boots! On the northern shore of 275 acre Lake Harris, lies a glorious campground swimming in activities and facilities.The lakeside campsites are secluded among hardwood trees and a killer view of the water. For all ya’ll boaters, there is an informal boat launch for your liking on the grounds and a bigger one just a hop skip and throw across the lake. The waters, fed by the thunderous Hudson River, are rich with fish. Cast a line from that canoe and catch a yellow perch! If you’re a land animal, hike to the High Peaks Wilderness Area in Tahawus for some serious rendezvous time with Mother Nature.

We went camping here with our family for a week last summer and had the time of our lives! We loved it so much that we are going here for two weeks this summer and have already booked our two weeks for Summer 2021! The lake is perfect for swimming, fishing, and kayaking. The sites are large, well-spaced out, and shaded by hardwood trees. The bathrooms are recently renovated and the staff is incredibly freindly. You can rent canoes and rowboats from the campsite and there is plenty of available firewood available nearby. This campsite is well off the beaten path, which is part of its appeal. If you want a break from the hustle and bustle of life and want to enjoy the beauty of the Adirondacks, this it the place to do it!

Love this place! It is remote and in the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks. It's just a twenty minute drive to Tahawus, a 19th century iron mining/smelting town. Tahawus (meaning "cloud splitter") is also the trailhead for hikes to many of the high peaks including New York's tallest, Mt. Marcy,
