Lake Eaton Camping/Kayaking Weekend August 16-19, 2018 UPDATED

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.  


  • Thursday:  We will set up and paddle Eaton or close by.
  • Friday Earlybird Paddle:  Location will be posted.
  • Friday Dinner:  You can choose to dine in Long Lake or eat at the campground. 
  • Saturday Group Breakfast:  We will fill up on a shared breakfast. Please post your dish on the message board.
  • Saturday after breakfast we will paddle. Location will be posted.
  • Saturday Group Paddle:  TBA
  • Saturday Group Dinner:  We will share dinner at location TBD. Please post what you will be bringing.

Please Note:  If you plan to paddle with us on Friday or Saturday and are not camping, please let us know. Paddle locations and times could change due to unforeseen circumstances, like the unpredictable weather.
