Small and secluded, Eel Weir State Park Campground is a little known gem on the Oswegatchie River for those looking to really get away from it all. And we mean get away from it all--you can only bring what you can carry here since all sites are walk-in only. Once you settle in you won’t want to leave but if you do make sure it’s via boat. Launch off of a nearby ramp into the river, and head two miles upstream to find Black Lake. Where your adventure takes you from there is up to you, just try to make it back in time to cook up some post-sunset s’mores!

I just recently took my family to stay here for a week long getaway!!! We left 4 days early!! Here is why... on Tues 7/11/17 the head ranger decided to come to our site at 6:30am and wake all 9 of us up and start complaining about the rope we had tied AROUND a tree and where we had placed our tent and where our vehicle was parked but we had read the rules and it stated NOWHERE we couldn't do these things I felt we were being picked on by the head ranger!! He did not need to speak to us in that manner and at that hour of the morning with a 1 and 2 year old sleeping in the tent whom he woke!!! Now we had been there since Sun 7/9/17 and now 2 DAYS LATER we are being told we were breaking the rules?!?! By the way they DIDN'T REFUND MY $$!!
