Description

Lewey Lake Campground offers wonderful amenities, like a swimming beach and comfortable campsites, and a range of outdoor activities, including fishing and hiking. Its campsites are secluded and wooded, offering campers a true opportunity to "get away from it all."

Geography:

Lewey Lake Campground is located in the central portion of the Adirondack Park on a 90-acre lake.

Recreation:

Motor boats (please note that smaller boats are recommended as the lake is shallow),, rowboats, and canoes are allowed. Visitors enjoy fishing for sunfish, yellow perch, white sucker, brown bullhead, lake trout, lake whitefish, rock bass, northern pike, and smallmouth bass. Great hiking is to be found on Sucker Brook Trail.

Facilities:

The park offers campsites, a picnic area with tables and fireplaces, and restrooms with a separate shower building, all of which have some facilities designated as accessible for the mobility impaired. A trailer dump station, a recycling center, a sand beach, a swimming area, a bathhouse, boat launches on Lewey Lake and Indian Lake, and hiking trails round out the park's many amenities.
