Description

Putnam Pond is the perfect place to fly your tribe’s flag in a secluded, heavily wooded and spacious area. Campsites surround a gorgeous pond. Canoe, boat or fish on the water. For a landlocked adventure, the lengthy Swing Trail runs twelve miles long. The trail heads west past Putnam Pond, passing Grizzle Ocean, Pharaoh Lake, Glidden Marsh, Crane Pond and Alder Pond. For overnight campers, boaters can zip across the pond and settle into primitive sites. If you’re no captain but want to hit the water, boat tours and ferry rides are offered on the famous Lake Champlain.

My best friend and I camped at one of the remote sites, boating in with our gear and staying for two nights. It was late summer, quiet, and absolutely beautiful. We didn't see many others around the campgrounds, but occasionally spotted some other boats. Our site was up a rocky little cliff, set beneath tall pines overlooking the pond. Nearby trails wind around the pond (really large, more like a lake) and lead back to the boat basin. You can hear the water lapping and the loons calling at night this time of year. We can't wait to come back here and explore a little more, especially the High Peaks Wilderness (I was still nursing a strained knee during this trip--oops!).
