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.

Caroga Lake Campground is a state-run campground that only provides primitive RV campsites, without electric or water hookups. Generators are allowed for limited amounts of time, so you can recharge the rental RV batteries while on-site to extend your stay.

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.

Being based at the lakeside gives easy access to fishing and boating, plus there are plenty of hiking opportunities locally. This beautiful area of rolling hills, forests, and lakes means you are spoilt for choice by all the local activities when you motorhome camp at Caroga Lake Campground.

This is a great area for hiking, with many good marked trails nearby. Only a couple of miles north at Canada Lake is a trailhead for three good hikes. Kane Mountain Trail is a moderate rated 1.5-mile out and back with nice views, great wildlife to see, and your dog is welcome as well. For something a little longer, the Kane Mountain North Trail Loop takes you on a 2.1-mile circular hike with lovely views. Lastly, the Stewart Lake and Indian Lake trail will take you passed both mountain lakes on a 4.5-mile out and back hike.

During the winter months, the trails can be explored on snowshoes, plus there are a number of ski resorts nearby for both downhill and cross-country skiing.

Exploring the Area

The small town of Caroga Lake has all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay while RV camping here. With several gas stations, a few stores, and several diners and restaurants, this could be your base for a great family vacation.

On the northern edge of the town, is the Caroga Museum. Featuring several buildings dating back to the 1800s, including a farmhouse, general store, a cobbler's shop, and a range of exhibits in the large barn. The museum’s aim is to preserve the history of the town and provide an interesting visit for anyone that wants to learn more about the area.

Billed as the largest zoo in upstate New York, the Adirondack Animal Land near Gloversville is sure to be a hit with the family. Spread over 80 acres, the park aims to get visitors as close to the animals as possible, from giant giraffes to baby donkeys and llamas. This is a wildlife propagation facility that breeds rare and endangered species to help protect them, and the center runs educational programs throughout the year.

Another great place to visit when you book an RV in Fulton County is Howe Caverns and the Secret Caverns close to the town of Cobleskill.

Take the guided tour and boat ride to discover the caves, before coming back to the surface and visiting the High Adventure area. Here you’ll find climbing walls, high ropes and more. The Secret Caverns are close by, and the guided tours take you through prehistoric caves and tunnels. Your visit ends at a very cool 100-foot underground waterfall.
