We did not use the campground, although the sites looked pretty good. We used the park for its day use beach and found an excellent stop to just sit in our beach chairs at the edge of the water and relax. Swimming area was nearby and looked like the water was clear and cool (elevation 2400 feet), and many folks...

I am not much of an outdoors person and was very worried about staying here with my husband and our two small children after reading information about the bears. However, we had no problems whatsoever and enjoyed a really wonderful stay. The ranger who checked us in was very friendly and reassuring, answering all of my questions about the possibility...

We've been to the N/S Lake Campground twice. Once we were right on the lake and the second time we were not. If you can book super early and get a spot on the lake we HIGHLY recommend it. There are few camping views that match it. The hikes are spectacular and versatile. One can easily end up on the...

We recently stayed at this campground in Loop 7. We were very pleased with the space we had for camping and especially the privacy. We arrived 1 hour after the designated check In time. Our campsite was a total mess. The fireplace was full of burning glass bottles, trash all over the place not to mention the 100 cigarette butts....

What a great find. We were looking for a place to camp en route from Maryland to Burlington, VT and this was the best place. We camped in 170 - great spot with a private walk down to the lake. Bathrooms were clean and they had a recycling center at the entrance to deposit trash and recycling items. Overall, we...

I have been coming to North-South Lake literally every year since I was a 9 month old infant, and I will never stop going. Every since I got my drivers license, I have made it a point to go every year, as many times as my employer allows PTO. Everything about this campground is amazing. The views, the sites, the...

Great campground for families. My kids loved this place. Bathrooms are clean. Each site has a table and grill. You can rent a boat or kayak for the whole day to enjoy the lake. You can walk to Haines waterfalls or go by car (5 minutes drive)

My husband and I usually backpack for solitude, but when we go camping with our group of friends, this is where we end up returning every year. The campsites (other than the ones right by the lake) are all secluded and separated by pretty dense tree cover. The bathrooms are very clean and new, which our friends always appreciate. Great...

This is such a beautiful campground. With spacious tent sites and great facilities. The lakes are breathtaking and you couldn't ask for a better spot to camp in New York State. This was after Labor Day so swimming was Over for the season. That's ok because the Catskills mountains in the fall can be CHILLY! High was around 60 degrees....

North/South Lake campground is a state run campground located on the edge of the Catskill forest preserve. The park is very large and VERY popular. Because of this I highly recommend make reservations as early as possible (believe reserve america allows you to book up to 8 months in advance). The campground itself has 7 different loops. Most of the...
