Fish Creek NYSDEC Campground

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Tupper Lake in Franklin County

Fish Creek Pond Campground offers a natural sand shoreline and water access for most campsites.

Fish Creek Pond Campground offers a natural sand shoreline and water access for most campsites. Campers are provided with pristine rivers and ponds accessible to both motorized and non-motorized boats. Square Pond and Fish Creek Pond (the two bodies of water around which the campground is situated) are open to motor boat usage. Also, motorboat operator's can enjoy miles of open water on the Upper Saranac Lake. A trailered boat launch with a small temporary parking area nearby receive steady usage throughout the camping season. Campers seeking non motorized boating opportunities are usually referred by the campground staff to the ponds in the Rollins Pond Campground area or the nearby St. Regis Canoe Area (approx. 3 miles north of the campground). It is considered by many, the finest and most attractive of all the Adirondack campgrounds. Camping equipment from tents to 40 ft RVs can be accommodated. The campground offers a variety of other recreational opportunities including: Interpreter Activity Program, canoeing and boating, fishing, hiking, and bicycling.
