Eighth Lake Campground is a public RV campground that was built and opened in 1935. It was part of a project managed by the Civilian Conservation Corps, which started in 1933; the purpose was to improve trails and canoe routes in the Fulton Lake Chain and expand a beach on Raquette Lake, along with creating the campground. The campground is located not far from Old Forge, a small hamlet and gateway community for the Adirondack Park. Old Forge is a historic community with many attractions for you to enjoy as well as a good supply center if you need to stock up.

It is situated between Seventh Lake and Eighth Lake, in a heavily wooded area providing quiet and serenity, perfect for a peaceful motorhome camping experience. When you camp at Eighth Lake Campground, you'll be within a stone's throw of several mountains from which you can enjoy a panoramic view of the area and other landmarks and attractions that you may appreciate.

Getting Outdoors

Once you're settled in and ready to begin exploring with your camper rental near Inlet, start by heading to the Moose River Plains Complex. This nature preserve features varied landscapes, from low lying river valleys to several mountain summits and everything in between. It has dozens of lakes and ponds, numerous streams and rivers (some of which have been designated scenic rivers), and a plains wild forest. The park has a long list of trails that vary in length from less than a mile to several miles (one of the trails runs from Northville through the Adirondack Mountains to Lake Placid and is more than 100 miles long). Fishing, kayaking, and mountain biking can be enjoyed, and in the winter, you can go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. An Old Forge camper rental is a perfect addition to your vacation, offering a warm destination for finishing your winter activities (or a comfortable respite from the summer heat).

Sargent Pond Wild Forest is a popular destination for both summer and winter outdoor activities and has several campgrounds that are open to the public. The area consists of small rolling hills dotted with lakes and rivers; many of the lakes have islands within them, and there are bicycle paths along several of the state routes that lead you through the park. Sargent Pond has some historic fire towers; one of them, Owl's Head Mountain, has epic views of the surrounding terrain.

Camping at Eighth Lake Campground

Eighth Lake Campground is one of many choices for camping with an RV and has more than 100 sites to choose from. The park has a dump station where you can empty your RV tanks, a recycling center, and restrooms with flush toilets and showers. While you're here, you can get firewood on-site and rent boats and canoes; there is a beach where you can swim, hiking trails, and a designated area for picnics with tables and fire pits.

Another option is Limekiln Lake Campground, which has some facilities that are ADA accessible. It's a family-friendly campground and is located a short distance from numerous attractions such as golf courses and waterparks, nature trails, and several mountains. It has a swimming beach and a bathhouse, picnic tables with firepits, a pavilion, and much more. If you'd like something completely rustic, Moose River Plains Wild Forest has campgrounds with primitive sites that don't have hookups.

Exploring the Area

Indian Lake is a small town and the self-proclaimed “Moose Capital of the Northeast.” There are several tour companies that can take you out for an adrenaline-filled afternoon of rafting and a museum that is as much a flea market as a representation of the town; you'll find all kinds of knick-knacks, from the routinely beautiful to the artfully unique (including paintings, glassware, books, and so on). Indian Lake has a sufficient yet small restaurant industry with most of the venues serving traditional American comfort food.

Tupper Lake is a small town that was named “Altamont” until being renamed in 2004; it also contains a smaller village within its boundaries that has the same name. Tupper Lake is a good place to do some shopping if you're in the mood, or you can enjoy the nightlife, which includes an Irish pub and a local brewery. The town is an access point for the Adirondack Sky Center & Observatory, which has a gift shop in addition to the professional telescopes. The town has a diverse selection of restaurants with delis, pub restaurants, pizzerias, and cafes; the cuisine is mostly American comfort food, although there are a few alternatives, such as a Mexican venue and an Italian steakhouse.
