Lake Eaton Campground
As the campground of choice for most of my childhood, Lake Eaton holds a special place in my heart. Just a mile and a half Northwest of Long Lake, Lake Eaton is a NYS DEC Campground with 135 tent and trailer sites. The sites on the water have great views of the "Lady in the Mountain" across the lake and most of them have a nice pathway down to the water's edge, making putting in a canoe or kayak very easy. This is a must-visit on your Adirondack camping to-do list.
