Taylor Pond Professional Review and Guide
"Surrounded by over 8,000 acres of state land, 4-mile-long Taylor Pond feels like it’s farther from the main roads and major campgrounds than it really is—popular Lake Placid is only a 35-minute drive south. But the primitive nature of this area is precisely the draw for vacationers who truly want some “wild” with their wilderness. The five boat-access-only sites here are especially in demand among fishermen, nature lovers, and the occasional painter. Another remote site is rumored to be in the planning stages. Prepare to catch trout, salmon, and perch, and count on spotting loons, osprey, and maybe a great blue heron, but don’t plan on swimming. Three pit privies are shared among twenty-five grassy campsites, with another by the boat launch and picnic area. Potable water is also available in several places."
