I just moved from Buffalo to Syracuse and the Adirondacks are now close enough for me to consider some overnight trips! But I am not very familiar with this side of the Adirondacks (say within two hours of Syracuse.) I have a young family to take with me so I can’t be too bold. I am familiar with all the public campgrounds based on the DEC website. Can anyone suggest:
- Campsites that I can paddle to, up to several miles away from where I can park my car.
- Campsites along the road (not necessarily on water) that I can drive to and camp overnight. (Like the ones along Floodwood Road, but on this side of the Adirondacks.)
And I’m always interested in other neat things to do in the area.
