Indian Lake Islands Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"In the central Adirondacks, equidistant between the towns of Speculator and Indian Lake, are two distinct campgrounds. The first is Lewey Lake, a group of sites located on or near the lake’s 90 acres of water. The second is Indian Lake Islands, which is so close to Lewey that its entrance is located between Lewey’s sites 35 and 37. The two offer very different camping experiences. Whereas Lewey offers a beach, the standard amenities, and many waterfront sites among its 209, it can be congested and lacks the beauty of many other campgrounds in the mountains. Conversely, Indian Lake Islands has only 55 sites on its 4,000 acres, all with boat-only access, offering unparalleled privacy and amazing views. If you have a tent and a boat, Indian Lake is the place to camp in the region. Even if you don’t have a boat, canoes and kayaks are available to rent from the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) at the boat launch, and motorboats can be rented and delivered by marinas such as Dunn’s Boat Service at Big Moose Lake. It would be hard to find an excuse not to visit."
