Lewey Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"At the turn of the century, one of the most famous residents of the North Woods, Louis Seymour or “French Louie” camped on these same shores. Earning a living by selling furs and maple syrup, this lifelong hermit also worked as a backwoods guide and was described by his biographer as “hard as Laurentian granite and tough as Adirondack spruce.” Located immediately south of Indian Lake with its remote island camps, Lewey Lake is a large campground that’s spread out in such a way as to create a secluded feel among its two hundred sites. The majority of them are concentrated near the entrance booth on the water, with another large group on the north shore around the shower house. Meanwhile, sites 1–14 are accessed directly from Route 30 and have pit privies in addition to the standard picnic tables and fireplaces. The Sucker Brook Trail leaves right from the campground, heading west between Cellar Mountain and Lewey Mountain."
