From Utica, you are pretty close to access to hikes in the Black River Wild Forest or the HaDeRonDah Wilderness. It's only about an hour to the trailhead on Bear Creek Rd to access a loop that will...

I visited the lean-to at Pine Lake many years ago, I think it was 2001 or 2002? But I though I'd heard that it since burned or was removed?

Thanks everyone. Yes, I've actually stayed at the designated tent site on MS once, it's almost as nice a spot as the lean-to. And we're going on a sunday through Tuesday, so that should help with the...

Do yourself a favor and spend a day on Putnam Pond. It's a beautiful spot- surprisingly uncrowded for having a state campground on it. Other than the campground, it's totally undeveloped. The fishing...

So as it turns out, I managed to get a site on Indian Lake for 4 nights the week of July 4th. An island site no less- #40 on the southern tip of Long Island, which seemed like a pretty good site when...

Sounds like maybe Ha-De-Ron-Dah wilderness, although that is more west central Adirondacks. Also I'm not familiar with any roads with roadside sites near there.

Stripperguy,

I'll be using a lightweight Kevlar canoe and normally do not object to carries. This is my annual anniversary trip with my wife, however, so for this particular trip I would prefer no...

Hey All,

It's that time of year again, when I stare at maps and plan summer paddling/camping adventures while the snow flies and the winds howl outside.

Thanks guys. Justin, you must have edited Jenny's "impatient whining" out of your videos, she always seemed calm and right at home in the canoe.

Keeping the dog between my knees at first is a good...

Great picture. Smoke and firelight can make some strange camera images.
