I would highly recommend a watersite on Horse Island. Sites both here and on on the main island are very spacious and well spaced. Neil's cove has some nice sites on the water, but it's more crowded and is a dirt road so when it rains it gets pretty mucky. One thing I didn't realize is that the entire lake... More

I've been camping here since I was young for about 15 years now! My boyfriend loves it. I love it! Loved my campsite(going to keep it a secret,) the staff is Incredibly helpful. I can't say enough good things about the park. We booked an RV site and had so much room for activities! We had a four person tent,... More

Pawtuckaway is by far the best campground I'v ever been to. Camping on an island at the water's edge and taking a dip whenever you are in the mood...Also, the most unbelieveable sunsets! If you follow the rules, you are left alone, unlike the New York State campgrounds where you feel like you're on a military base with all the... More

We did a weekend day Hike in Pawtuckaway in Early January with ten 20-30 aged friends. Without really having a specific route in mind we decided to do the South and Middle Mountains in one big loop. Views from the tower atop the South Mountain were beautiful and the entire Park was covered in nice fresh powder. Would definitely recommend... More

Like any scary movie it was okay at first, we camped there for a weekend. bathrooms were adequate and our campsite was a good spot next to water with a firepit. There is a playground and a picnic table area for the kids. fishing is allowed, they have a camp store and canoe rentals. My BIG PROBLEM was after 20... More

Very beautiful state park campground with campsites right on the water. Not too far from civilization either which makes it a good selection for my next camping trip. My stay was at a sister campground nearby (Bear Brook) and I decided to check this one out. Be careful of using your gps to find your way there. My gps gave... More

This has to be one of the prettiest state parks in the entire northeast. Beautiful setting, coupled with lovely trails along the waters edge, and scenic picnic areas combine for a truly memorable outing.

Love love love pawtuckaway! I've been there twice in the last month camping with an 8 and 5 year old. We stayed in campsite 111 and cabin 2. Each provided a different experience -- the campsite was lake side with gorgeous views over the lake. The cabin was a very nice experience -- clean and comfortable, albeit a little too... More
