Enjoy everything from remote wilderness campsites and boat access only sites, to full amenity, waterfront campgrounds and handicap accessible lean-tos. If camping is your dream, Tupper Lake is the place where dreams come true!

What to do, what to do?

From outdoor recreation to eating, you'll want to check out all of your options before hitting the campground.

The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line.
