Campsites & RV Facilities
Most sites have electric and water hook ups . The campground is wooded and most sites have trees between them. Some are under mature pines with lake views between the tall trunks. There is a RV dump station. Sites vary in size .
Recommended campsites for views and launching
There used to be many lakeside sites you could launch kayaks & canoes from as well as swim and enjoy the lake views (campfires on the edge of the lake at night were great). It was very convenient to be able to watch your children enjoy swimming from the comfort of your site. The campground is under new ownership and we are not sure if this is true any more. Please check before you visit.
They also have many wilderness sites available. Several are on an island and many others on the west shore of Cupsuptic Lake and the Cupsuptic River, some of which may be reached by car.
T shirts, souvenirs, things you forgot, snacks including fresh homemade bread and muffins, out of state licenses and much more.
This is a great place for swimming with shallow water & sandy beaches.

Campground details may change so please check with the campground for the most up to date information.
Most of the campgrounds here are on large lakes in the mountains which mean the weather can change very quickly. We suggest you check the weather forecast before going out. We also suggest you watch the weather carefully for changes as forecasts have been known to change quickly in these lake and mountain areas. Thunder storms and winds often come up during the day. It is helpful if you watch for areas you could land and get off the lake if needed.
It is a good idea to always carry emergency equipment in case you had to spend the night out or wait out a storm. We have had to land and wait out a thunder storm several times. Once the storm was around the area a couple of hours so we set up our emergency shelter and enjoyed the lunch we had brought.
Most of the campgrounds have great views and good paddling while staying close or in protected areas & brooks where you probably will see moose and other wildlife including eagles in some areas. Please paddle within your skill ability and experience. We can suggest these areas for you to enjoy but cannot be responsible for your safety.
