To add to the other information in this thread- make sure you stay on the official trail across the summit. There's a short stretch where hikers have been cutting through (and damaging) alpine...

As others have posted, no, campfires are not permitted at Lake Colden. The reason behind the ban is that back when campfires were still permitted, the high levels of use resulted in the complete...

I agree with the others. Pharaoh Lake WA bugs are hands down every year the worst I ever see in the Adirondacks. If you bushwhack around, there's a ton of small vernal pools trapped in the rocky...

That's Pharaoh Mountain. There's no trails that access those cliffs although there are spectacular views from the summit (which is accessible by trail). To get to the cliffs is a challenge- after a...

That is definitely worse than just firewood. Too bad; I've camped at Slush Pond a bunch (at the site pictured nearly every time, in fact) and have always found the sites to be clean and the area...

Is that Slush Pond?

Looks like someone had a permit hunting camp back there in the fall, and hauled in a lot more firewood than they ended up using. If that's the worst thing about that site,...

You're not wrong, but it's worth pointing out that part of the reason for this is because most tourists tend to go other places (like Lake Placid) and spend money there instead. Tupper Lake has...
