We spent a recent (mid Sept 2014) Friday to Sunday here and it was great. I had read that loop E was the nicest but it was full except for a tiny spot with not much privacy so we opted for B loop, site 30. That site was very large, private, and there was only one other camper in the... More

My son (9 years old) and I stayed here this past week for 3 nights. We are novices, and I have to say that NLC gave us a great experience. The campsites are well-spaced, so although you can see your neighbors, there is some privacy. For those looking for a nice, big campfire, call and ask the ranger if the... More

This DEC campground is soo clean it is wonderful! Lots of trails to hike and paved pathways for bikers/runners/rollerbladers etc. The lake is only for canoes, swimmers, kayaks etc. No motorized boats, which is very peaceful. Very close to town , so makes it easy to get ice and firewood. Been camping here for 4 years now, no issues. 2... More

Our family has camped in several New York and Vermont State campgrounds, and this is definitely one of our least favorite. The camping spots are all unlevel, small, and not raked. There is no soap in any of the bathrooms, the bathrooms near the beach are disgusting and smell terrible, the swimming area is restricted & tiny and only open... More

We came to Nicks lake for a day trip in the fall and saw the waterfront sites. Knew we had to come back! We went on the site in October and all the sites we wanted were gone but we got Loop c site 45. On the water but up a path. We were able to haul kayaks down path... More

This campground is always a family favorite. We camp here at least twice a year. The campground is close to Moose River where we love to kayak. You can also kayak the lake right at the campground. I love to hear the loons and watch the sunset on the beach. The hike around the lake is also amazing.

Overall: We really enjoyed our stay at Nick's. We had a lake site in loop D and found the site very private and rustic. At night, we had wonderful views of the sunset. Favorite parts: I loved all the wild life; we heard the loons in the evening and the woodpeckers throughout the day. As we drove in for the... More

Recently we camped at Nick's Lake Campground in Old Forge NY ( Oct. 2013 ). I wanted to comment on the size of the campsites and the overall neatness of the place. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a reasonable place to stay. It cost us $56.00 for 2 nights ( a cabin would have... More

Had our last trip of the year this weekend. Overall a very nice trip; the updated bathrooms & individual showers are a hit with me. No more having to share! Didn't get a lakefront site, but several friends did; beautiful views while you're sitting with a cup of coffee! Hiked Bald Mountain with the 2 yo on my back; pretty... More

We did not have reservations but we were able to get a tent spot in loop D # 58. I have alway stayed in loop E and its very hard to get a camping site bc that loop has updated bathrooms and lakefront for some sites. The man at the check in counter was very nice, i left it up... More
