Moffit Beach Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A huge campground at the bottom of Sturges Hill on the north shore of Sacandaga Lake, Moffitt Beach is named for Josiah Moffitt, a stone mason and mill operator who settled in the area during the early part of the nineteenth century. Many of the shady spots here are located directly on the water. Just inside of the entrance booth, sites 79–83 and 92, 95, and 100 are closest to the shower house. Recreational programs are offered daily from late June until Labor Day weekend and a short, self-guided nature trail begins near site 259 on the western side of the campground. Other hikes nearby include the Cisco Creek and Kunjamuk Trails, which begin at the end of Elm Lake Road, the Pillsbury Mountain Trail near the Sled Harbor parking area, and the popular Auger Falls Trail off Route 30. Fish the lake for walleye, brown and rainbow trout, smallmouth and rock bass, brown bullhead, and perch. Firewood is sold at the campground and in downtown Speculator. Tanners Outdoor Sports is the best place to find the camping, fishing, and boating supplies you might need for a longer stay at Moffitt Beach."
