Like TrailBlaser says, there are a lot of campsites on the Oswegatchie. You will be able to find something, if maybe not the most desirable sites, like the ones he mentioned. The last time I went...

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?

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...
