Forked Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Hugging the eastern shores of Forked Lake, this primitive public campground offers a near-wilderness experience with a substantial number of remote sites, many of which are only accessible by foot or boat. Don’t expect hot showers or a concession stand here, but count on peaceful nights around the fire and undisturbed sleep. With the exception of a handful of spots clustered around the boat launch at the park’s entrance, the heavily wooded landscape affords each site some degree of privacy. Pit toilets are shared. Small motorboats are allowed on the water but rowboats, canoes, and kayaks are encouraged. Anglers at Forked Lake commonly catch brook trout, large and smallmouth bass, bullhead, yellow perch, and pan fish. Swimming is not permitted. To learn more about the history of the region and its native species, plan to visit the Adirondack Museum in nearby Blue Mountain Lake."
