Stayed overnight at campsite #6 on Sable Island. From the further launch ramp on Lower Saranac Lake, our island was about 2 miles away. With no one occupying the other 2 campsites, we had the island to ourselves, and it was awesome. Very surreal, waking up on an island in the middle of a large lake.

Things to note:
- You must have a pdf on your boat. This was the first time using our inflatable kayak, and didn't know that, so we were had to go into town and rent some.
- DON'T OVERPACK!!!! Cannot stress this enough. We eneded up needing 2 trips to get our gear in, and after 5 hours of driving, 4 miles of paddling just to set up was definitely not fun.
-The area is beautiful, and would highly recommend

Did 3 nights solo on Eagle Island. Rented a solo canoe at Adirondack lakes and Trails Outfitters. Great company, great people. They transport your canoe or kayak to any of the DEC boat launches. You'll need lots of water or a filter on the islands. Very rustic camping; fire ring, picnic table and outhouse, and no running water. I brought a tarp, and was able to lower it over a picnic table covered with gear when it poured the second night. The campsites are very wooded, you'll have no problem finding trees to tie a tarp to. If you rent a canoe you can get a good amount of gear to your site. A double can carry two adults and hundreds of pounds. Basic needs: tent with good rain fly, bags, pads, cook set, grill and headlamps.
