Sacandaga Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Built in 1920 on the waterway of the same name, the campground at Sacandaga was one of the first places in the region to be developed for public recreation. Campsites are loosely divided into three groups, with a central shower house closest to the first 60 sites. In all, seven comfort stations are scattered between Route 30 and the river. Shaded by eastern white pine, nearly half of the sites are perched on the Sacandaga River or its West Branch. There is no swimming beach at Sacandaga but boaters can launch small craft at Lake Algonquin up the road another 3 miles. Area hikes include routes to Dunning Pond Trail, Auger Falls, a popular and fairly short, yellow-blazed trail to a 40-foot cascade, as well as the long-distance Northville–Lake Placid Trail, finished in 1924 by the then newly formed Adirondack Mountain Club."
