Lewey Lake Campground is a family-friendly campground located between its namesake lake and Indian Lake, just to the north, and a short distance from the town of Indian Lake. The area was a popular camping destination even before the 1920s but was first developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s; it was initially named Lewey Bridge (after a local resident). The campground remained small until after Route 30 was built. RV camping at Lewey Lake Campground places you within Adirondack Park, one of the largest nature preserves east of the Mississippi River.
Adirondack Park was established in 1894 in response to public concerns about the clearcutting of large areas of forest and the preservation of water resources. It is not a national park but is rather a collective of both publicly and privately owned lands, resulting in areas of undisturbed nature with small towns and villages scattered throughout. Rent a camper near Lewey Lake Campground, and you can explore the area at your leisure. You can drive through the preserve observing the stands of old-growth and second-generation spruce, hemlock, beech, and pine forest. You may, if you're lucky, spot some of the resident wildlife, such as moose, black bear, red and gray fox, bobcats, and many others.
Lewey Lake Campground has several hundred campsites for you to choose from and picnic areas with tables and fire pits; some of the campsites and picnic sites are ADA accessible. You'll also find restrooms with hot showers and flush toilets, a dump station, and a recycling center. The campground has a boat launch for your use and a camp store where you can buy firewood, ice, and other supplies.
The campground has many activities to make your stay pleasant. While you're here, you'll have access to a beach where you can go swimming or work on your tan. If you'd rather get some fishing in, you can head out onto the lake, which has rock and smallmouth bass, northern pike, lake trout, and many other fish species. Small motorboats, canoes, kayaks, and rowboats are allowed on the lake, in the event you'd like to enjoy the scenery. If hiking and nature observation are your thing, there is a trail nearby leading to a fire tower on Snowy Mountain and breathtaking views.
Slightly farther away, Hudson Gorge Wilderness is named after the Hudson River, which flows through its low mountain ranges and valleys. The river is considered a scenic river but also a wild river in certain places, with rapids and cascades. You can enjoy a leisurely kayak trip on the Hudson, but thrill-seekers will want to try their hand at one of the best whitewater adventures in the Adirondacks. Hikers will enjoy the many trails that provide a range of difficulty, from easy trails that suit everyone to more challenging trails. Some of the trails lead to scenic waterfalls, yet another reward.
Moose River Plains is a recreational area open to the public year-round; it is characterized by low river valleys that run between small hills and mountains, although there are two mountains, Little Moose and Manbury, that are substantially bigger. There are access roads that can be used to make your way into the lakes, streams, and rivers that populate the plains; you can hike the roads in summer, but if you're here in the winter, you can enjoy snowmobiling as well. While camping near Indian Lake, Moose River Plains is just a short drive away.
If you've had your fill of the outdoors or just feel a craving for some culture while camping at Lake Lewy Campground, Pottersville is a small hamlet with plenty of opportunities to go shopping, whether it's for gifts or for souvenirs for yourself. If you like trains, a local studio designs hobby train sets for private clients; they don't sell train models off the shelf, but you're welcome to come and have a look. Pottersville also has a small selection of restaurants serving familiar comfort food with great service.
Lake George is a popular getaway destination for New Yorkers and with good reason; here you'll find both urban and natural attractions. The town is historically significant and has two forts that are open to the public; nature observers can start their visit with a scenic lake cruise, while adrenaline enthusiasts can try their hand at parasailing, scuba diving, and jet-skiing, to name a few of the activities available. Lake George has a long list of dining facilities, most of which are reasonably priced and varied, from family and breakfast restaurants to steakhouses and more.
