St Regis DEC campsite map
 
When I went to Long Pond a few weeks ago, I brought along a copy of the DEC campsite map from the DEC WEB site. I found some of the sites mark as non-camping being rehabilitated. Even my site on the point had areas marked off. The map on the DEC WEB site is noted as 3/2016, so 3 years ago. The map seems out of date vs. what I observed. Are there more accurate maps available?

Heading back for July 4th weekend, hate to have to hunt for a site or miss a new site that's not on that map.

Thanx's

Have you checked the new National Geographic maps? I think the one for Saranac Lake covers the St Regis area, and these were all updated last year.

You will need to hunt for a site for sure. one of the busiest weekends for camping. Last two years i went out and was unable to get a road side site 2 days before even and was forced to find others past paul smiths. St regis canoe area makes a paddlers map but im not sure how up to date they are after last years closings.

How did you make out finding a site on July 4th? We are heading up in August and was curious. Been 2 years since we have been up on Long Pond.

I ended up going up on Friday, June 28, so the weekend before the 4th. Besides myself, I only found 2 other sites occupied. Also no one on Slang or Turtle either.
So very quiet, perhaps folks were waiting for the 4th. I plan to head to Bog/Lows in a week or so, but will be heading in early on Friday again. I'm guessing/hoping those heading out have a longer drive and won't be on the water until later on Friday. I find that plan works or else arriving Sunday afternoon, which is difficult timing for me.

St Regis Outfitters has up to date maps

Yeah, the Paddlers Maps published by Paddlesports Press (basically St. Regis Canoe Outfitters) are some of the more consistently updated and accurate maps available for any portion of the Adirondacks. It's worth noting in any case that they aren't completely free of error- it's always good to look for the "Camp Here" disc in person before setting up camp- but their maps are generally pretty reliable.
