Lake Eaton
Camping/Kayaking Weekend
August 21-24, 2014

Long Lake, NY

The Lake Eaton campground is 12 miles north of the Adirondack Museum and 1.5 miles from the Village of Long Lake. We will plan to follow our normal schedule:

Thursday - Set up, explore, paddle
Friday - Paddle & eat out at local restaurant or in campgrounds
Saturday - Paddle and share a dish to pass at group dinner
Sunday - Paddle
Monday - Paddle for those who can stay an extra day

You will need to make your own campsite reservations through Reserve America Online.  We will be reserving in the area of sites 60-85, 120-135 (See Campground Map).  Read carefully because some are walk-to sites (Park car & carry your gear).  You will need to reserve ASAP because sites go fast.

Tentative paddles:

Friday's paddle: Forked Lake. 1:30 PM. Directions to launch: Turn right out of the campgrounds (south on Rt 30). Approx 3.3 miles south of Custard's Last Stand in Long Lake on Route 28N/30 watch for the Buttermilk Falls sign on the right (North Point Rd). Turn right at that sign and go past the falls. Turn right by Campground sign onto Forked Lake Campsite Rd. Drive to the end.

Saturday's paddle: Little Tupper Lake. 10:00 AM. Directions to launch: Take a left out of the campgrounds (north on Rt 30). After approx 7.7 miles look for a sign on the left that says William C Whitney Wilderness Area Little Tupper Lake Headquarters. That is Sabattis Rd. Take that left hand turn and follow the signs to the Headquarters (4 miles).

Saturday's dinner: Join us on site 80 or thereabouts. Post what you will bring on the message board.

Sunday's paddle: TBD

FYI - Long Lake launch directions: Take a right out of the campgrounds (south on Rt 30). Go straight onto Town Dock Rd/Olivet Rd at the flashing caution light in Long Lake. The Hardware store will be on your right. Drive to the end.
