Lake Eaton Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Close to the center of Adirondack Park and easy to find right off of Route 30, Lake Eaton is a compact campground with sites strung along the eastern shoreline. The size and quality of each plot varies, from small, sunny, and grassy, to larger, shady, and somewhat secluded. A bathhouse near the entrance has eight stalls and showerheads with variable settings. The trail to the fire tower atop the summit of Owls Head Mountain can be reached from the northwestern end of the campground or by driving a short distance to the nearby trailhead on Endion Road. For longer stays, a Laundromat is conveniently located south of the entrance on Route 30. If storm clouds threaten your plans, head to the science-based Wild Center in Tupper Lake. In addition, 2 miles farther up Route 30 is John Dillon Park, a fully accessible wilderness facility that includes nine relatively new lean-tos with composting toilets that are free to campers on a first-come, first-served basis."
