Campground Description

Tucked away in seclusion a short way off the main tourist route, this jewel of a campground remains one of the best kept secrets in the Adirondacks. The remote Adirondack setting of this facility offers a relaxing, quiet beauty all its own. The campsites offer privacy; they are large and well-forested.

    My daughter (age 4) and I recently spent 9 nights at Brown Tract Pond Campground. We had reserved 6 nights, but decided to stay 3 extra nights as the weather was beautiful and we were having a great time. For the first 6 nights we were right on the water. It was easy to launch a kayak right from our site, as we had a little sandy "beach". Right next door to our site, you could rent canoes and kayaks. I found the campground very peaceful (no motorboats), with beautiful views. There is a nice beach for swimming and playing in the sand (no lifeguard). We were near a bathroom, but some areas of the campground have outhouses. The downside: no hot water in the bathroom, no showers, no lights in the bathroom and there is a long/5 mile bumpy dirt road that you have to drive to get to the campground. You can drive to Golden Beach campground to take a shower though. Paddling to the island and jumping off rocks into deep water is popular. We didn't try it as my daughter is too young! It was a great campground to soak up some nature. I plan to go there again. It was also very reasonable at only $18 per night.
