Putnam Pond Campground is a seasonal RV campground located in northeastern New York, near the Vermont border. It is located along the shoreline of Putnam Pond, a small lake that is popular for fishing year-round. You can rent rowboats and canoes before heading out onto the pond to troll for largemouth bass, northern pike, or several other species that populate the lake. The pond is fairly long and shallow and supports ice fishing in the winter. If you park your rental motorhome at Putnam Pond Campground, you can take your catch straight from the lake to your RV fridge with ease.

If you need to get into town for groceries or supplies or want to have someone else do the cooking, the campground is a short distance from the town of Ticonderoga. The town has a few historical landmarks, the Amherst Avenue Historic District and Fort Ticonderoga, and there's a riverside trail that follows the Lachute River as far as Bicentennial Park. If you want to get some exercise without working up a sweat, this should do the trick.
