We came to North Lake for the day and had a great time. We relaxed on the beach at North Lake. We also hiked up to the site of the old Catskill Mountain House and walked around the Lake. There are row boats available for rent. You can pack a lunch. It is a great family place with a lot... More

If you are a camper or a day hiker this is one of the best camp grounds in New York. Boat and Kayak Rentals are Cheap. Hiking and views are extraordinary. Bath rooms are very clean and updated. Sites are big. Two Beaches to swim. Views from North Point are just breath taking and is worth the climb. Artist Rock... More

We originally intended to visit Kaaterskill Falls but its closed off for construction. So we paid $10 to enter the campground and park. We hiked out of the North Lake parking lot on the Blue Trail to Artist Rock and then Sunset Rock. Great Vistas! The trail is fairly easy with a couple of scrambles up. We could have hiked... More

We took a day trip to North Lake with our 2 year old grandsons. It was a hot but beautiful day. We arrived a few minutes before 10am and the lifeguard was raking the beach and getting it ready for the day. He was a very nice guy and told us the water temp was about 70-73 degrees. We had... More

This place was great! What I was looking for when going camping was wooded area, maybe a lake, and wildlife and thats exactly what this place had. If you are looking for a ton of activities and loud noise into the late hours this is not for your. This place is more relaxed. This place has rules just like anywhere... More

A great campground with plenty to do. The hiking is amazing! There are the beautiful Katerskill Falls, the mountain house and many more. This is such a gorgeous area. The campground has 2 beaches where you can swim, picnic, fish or rent a boat. Kayaks, paddle boats and row boats are all available to rent -$25 for the day. Not... More

We recently spent a few nights at North South Lake Campground, and loved it. We stayed at site 204, which is in Loop 7. There was lots of tree cover to give us a lot of privacy. Loop 7 is located away from the lake, and away from the other camping loops. We enjoyed it because it seemed quieter than... More

I went camping during the last weekend of May, 2015. We were altogether 4 camp sites, 8 tents. We had lots of children and we all felt the place was safe for them to run and play around. Each camp site is allowed to have 2 cars (register at the entrance) and two tents only. I was allowed to park... More
