Luzerne Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Surrounding 51-acre Fourth Lake, and not actually next to its namesake body of water, Luzerne tends to attract families during the summer months, when the two swimming areas swell to near capacity with people seeking relief from the heat. A separate and sizeable horse-camping area also makes this a uniquely sought-after outdoor destination. (Note: Due to concern about equine infectious anemia, horses entering the campground must possess a negative Coggins certificate.) Campsites are organized into five groups with sites 38–50 closest to the shower house; site 129 is handicapped accessible. Sites 81–85 and 113–119 are nearest to the campers’ beach. On the other hand, Route 9N runs next to the first group of fifteen sites so they might seem slightly noisy to some campers. Organized recreational programs, including nature hikes, crafts, and games, are offered daily from late June until Labor Day weekend. Motorboats are not permitted on Fourth Lake. For views of Lake George and beyond that allegedly extend 100 miles on clear days, drive or hike up Prospect Mountain, which tops out at over 2,000 feet above sea level."
