Lake Eaton
Camping/Kayaking Weekend
August 17-20, 2017

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.  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.  Read carefully because some are walk-to sites (Park car & carry your gear).  You will need to reserve ASAP because sites go fast. 

Schedule Update

We plan to paddle Lake Lila, the Bog River Flow and Henderson Lake which is near the mouth of the Hudson River. The day and time will be decided when we get there and check the REAL weather. We do plan to wait for those coming on Thursday – at least until 1:00 PM. Let us know on the message board if you think you will be much later than that. Saturday’s breakfast will be on site 67 (Amy & Alice). No one has volunteered for supper yet. This is your last chance to have some friends at your place, because Lewey Lake is all set for 2017. Or .. we could surprise you.

Friday Earlybird Paddle:  Location will be posted.

Friday Dinner:  You can choose to dine in Long Lake or eat at the campground.
