Been coming to North & South Lake since I was a toddler....started coming up with family for picnics and swimming in the cold waters of the Lakes. Now, I like to spend my time kayaking and sitting on the beach enjoying the beautiful scenery. All boat/kayak rentals are done at South Lake, and you can unload your own "vessel" at... More

This campground has a lot of sites. It wasn't very private which was fine for camping with a friend, which was what I did. We drove over to South Lake at about 9 am and no one was there and it was so quite, peaceful and beautiful. The trees were just slightly starting to change colors and it was exactly... More

Just a terrific campground. Love staying here. The grounds are great and the lake and hiking trails are beautiful. There's a great beach to go swimming. On south lake, you can rent boats to row and fish all over the lake. The campsites are well kept. The bathrooms and showers are clean. It makes for a wonderful stay.

Booked this place not sure what to expect. Drove in and staff was great. Wood was reasonable and came with a fire starter which no other place has given me.... Campsite #38 was nice. Had stream along side of us but was dry. The fire pit is the best I've seen in any campground. Neighbors are seen easily but Just... More

It was amazing. I was truly concerned before we left our home that I had made a mistake about this campsite. I was completely wrong. It was an amazing weekend, the beauty the fresh air. the stars in the sky. My only complaint would be that it would be nice if the bathrooms could be cleaned more often. They were... More

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
