Emerald Lake State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"You can’t help but notice the steep embankment leading up from one side of the road and down from the other as you drive into the Emerald Lake State Park campground. This place was essentially carved out of the hillside. It makes for a dramatic setting, but consequently, a steep bank encircles many of the camping areas here, so keep an eye on any little ones you may have running around. You’ll hear a little road noise from nearby US 7, but hardly any at night.

The first area you’ll come to, Area A, has a pleasing mix of tent and lean-to sites, much like the rest of the campground. In the 1-through-12 section of the loop, most of the tent sites are set toward the center of the loop, with the lean-tos on the outside. For the most part, the lean-tos are secluded on the sides, with the open side of the lean-to facing out from the A-loop road."
