Notice: some Adirondack campgrounds run by the state of New York are currently closed. This measure is in effect to help control the spread of the novel coronavirus. The state Department of Environmental Conservation is working to open campgrounds as it is deemed safe. In addition, the state campgrounds are not currently taking new reservations or walk-in campers. This will be reviewed by the DEC and updates will be shared as soon as possible. If you have an existing reservation, please check the DEC website to ensure that your campground is open.
Tent, cabin, RV, lean-to: camping abounds in the Adirondacks!
There is nothing like camping in the Adirondacks. Mist rising off the surface of a lake is the perfect complement to a cup of coffee, while loon calls are the perfect lullaby for a peaceful evening under the stars. Set off on foot for tent camping in the backcountry or reserve a spot at a campground with lots of amenities — either way, nature won't be far.
Leave No Trace and Love Your ADK
The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
