Fish Creek Pond Campground is often called the gem of the Adirondacks. With over 300 campsites, most of which are waterfront, and just a short drive from the Adirondack High Peaks, it's no wonder the campground has developed a huge fan base. The campground lines the shores of Fish Creek Pond and Square Pond, with access to Follensby Pond and Upper Saranac Lake via a short portage and a channel, respectively.

Most sites at Fish Creek Pond Campground have direct access to the water. The few that do not are not far from other access. Sites are mostly level and slightly wooded, with a mixture of sand, gravel and dirt surfaces. While none of the sites are specifically designed for RVs and no hookups are available, many sites are expansive enough to host large RVs and trailers. Despite the vast number of sites, it is recommended to make reservations at least a few days in advance, especially on weekends.

Bathrooms offer flush toilets, and a large shower facility is available. A dump station and recycling center are also featured.

The campground also features several recreational opportunities including fishing, paddling, hiking, biking, swimming, basketball and volleyball. A great paddling trip begins on Fish Creek Pond and follows a short portage to Follensby Pond. Popular hikes include the Floodwood Loop and Otter Hollow Loop.

The campground strictly enforces the 15 mph speed limit and dogs must be kept on 6-foot leashes or less.
