When you’re looking for an RV campground close to a lake and on the edge of a town, then Caroga Lake Campground is just the place for you. Situated midway between Albany, NY to the southeast and Utica, NY to the west, Caroga Lake is actually made up of two lakes connected by a short channel. Caroga Lake Campground can be located on the southeast corner of East Caroga Lake.

The campground is split into several loops, and each loop has plenty of drinking water supplies and a restroom with showers. Other facilities include an exercise course, a sandy swimming beach with lifeguards and a roped-off area, picnic areas, and charcoal grills for outdoor cooking.
