Siss & Bubb Lake Question

Is it possible or even permissible to carry in and paddle Siss & Bub lake?

It is possible and permissible.

There are a few campsites around the lakes too.

Sis & Bubb

Thank you for the information... We are thinking of going up to paddle Moss Lake during Paddlefest weekend. Maybe I sneak off and hit these two?

Maybe a better idea would be to sneak off and join the group of forum members planning to camp at Lake Harris and paddle the Essex Chain.
Just sayin'....!

Were you planning to camp at Moss Lake? It can get pretty busy there...

Sneaking Off

Wish I could sneak off and hit Essex Chain again... We weren't planning on camping just making a day trip to the area.

Bubb is easy to wheel to from the Moss Lake end. The direct trail up from 28 is much shorter but also very rocky and steep in places. Bubb Lake is where I camped on my first two nights in the Adirondacks so I am especially fond of that area.

Camping Bubb

Zach,

Can you actually camp at Bubb lake or did you camp at Moss lake?

I camped 150' (or my best guess at it) from Bubb and from the trail, just like you can in most places on state land. I had to look around for a level place large enough for my tent but I found one. It's not like camping at Moss lake where you could land a helicopter in the campsites but I prefer to be a little more secluded anyway. I have stayed at Moss on my last night so I could get a fast start to head home, and it was nice too, just more crowded. I also don't make campfires generally, so that makes it easier to find informal sites. I guess it all comes down to what the verb "camp" conveys to each person.

Campsite

Thanks Zach for the tip... My wife and I are making a day trip to Old Forge on Sunday. We are bringing our canoe and hope to take a nice afternoon paddle on Moss Lake.
