Little Sand Point Campground is on the shoreline of Piseco Lake in Hamilton County, New York, and could be the perfect location for your next RV camping vacation. When you are looking for peace, quiet and seclusion, this is the perfect place. All the campsites at this campground are nestled under the canopy of trees that stretches right to the edge of the lake.
There are no electric or water hookups at Little Sand Point Campground, but it makes up for this lack of convenience with the beautiful location and views. The campground does have restrooms, hot showers, and plenty of drinking water spigots, plus you can use your generator to top up your batteries. You can certainly make yourself comfortable while camping at Little Sand Point Campground, just come prepared.
The area covers over 2,800 acres, and with two islands within Piseco Lake, there is plenty of space for watersports, fishing, and other activities when you bring your rental RV to Little Sand Point Campground. Nearby, there are plenty of sites to visit away from the campground, including Adirondack Animal Land, a water theme park, mine tours, scenic railroad trips, and historical museums. If you need some retail therapy away from all the sightseeing, the nearest large town is Gloversville to the south.
Hiking is a great way to see more of the area while RV camping at Little Sand Point Campground, and there are trails right on your doorstep. The short 1.5-mile out and back hike climbs Echo Cliff to a viewpoint overlooking the Piseco Lake, that is well worth the effort. It’s graded as moderate, but the climb is steady rather than steep, so good for the whole family. A little longer is the T Lake Falls Trail, a 10-mile out and back moderate hike that takes you past T Lake and ends at a lovely waterfall. The initial climb is quite steep, but if you can get past that, it becomes an easier walk. If you are looking for something more challenging, the 133-mile Northville Lake Placid trail passes through the campground. After all that exercise, you’ll be glad of the peace and quiet while camping at Little Sand Point Campground.
There is a boat ramp within the Little Sand Point Campground, and motorized boats are welcome here. Water sports are also permitted on the lake, plus you can rent canoes and kayaks in the campground.
Anglers will love the fishing here, as the cold clear waters are full of trout and salmon. You can also catch walleye and a variety of species of bass here, either from the bank or by boat. During the winter, the lake is very popular for ice fishing.
There’s plenty to see and do when you book an RV in Hamilton County. To the northeast of the campground are two places to visit in a single day. In North Creek, you’ll find the Saratoga and North Creek Railway that offers wonderful scenic trips along the Hudson River in elegant and vintage carriages. It’s not just a railroad trip, but an experience, enjoying the onboard dining as you travel gently through the beautiful countryside between Saratoga Springs and North Creek.
Close to North Creek is the Garnet Mine Tours, near the town of North River. The original mines were established in 1878, called Barton Mines and Barton, as garnet is a beautiful ruby red color. The tour is partly by road and part underground with a guide and shows you the mining process while explaining the geology that formed the garnet. While touring the mines, you can collect your own garnet and take it back to the mineral store for weighing and valuing. The store also gives demonstrations on gem cutting and sells a range of garnet gifts to take home as a memento.
At Lake George to the east, visitors will find a whole range of attractions for the whole family to enjoy. Take a trip on the Minne Ha Ha steam paddlewheel ship or one of the other company’s ships for a fantastic tour of Lake George. The company has been operating since 1817 and offers a range of tours, from just an hour to a half-day trip with dinner. It’s a great way to see the lake.
When the paddle steamer is a bit sedate for the kids, the House of Frankenstein wax museum in Lake George will liven them up a little! This is not the sedate Madame Tussauds style of waxworks, but a horror show made of wax, designed to scare you at every turn, so plan accordingly.
