Lincoln Pond provides the opportunity for primitive, island, or "developed site" camping. Large enough to accommodate motor boats, but sheltered from most harsh winds, this facility maintains a bathing beach and provides a very popular canoe, kayak and rowboat rental area.


Lincoln Pond Campground is located near Elizabethtown, NY.


Motor boats, rowboats, and canoes are allowed, with rowboat, kayak and canoe rentals available. A car-top boat launch is available. Fishing for tiger muskie, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and bullhead is plentiful.


The park offers a variety of campsites. Some are in remote areas and do not offer flush toilets or portable water without going back to main part of campground. Three sites are boat access only. Other sites are more developed, with hot showers, a trailer dump station, a recycling area, and disabled accessibility. The park also offers a boat launch site for boaters and fishermen.
