“Beautiful and clean!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

My whole family camps at Nick's Lake at last twice a season. It's very clean, great sites. Bathrooms are spotless and plenty of showers on each loop! Very beautiful family oriented setting. Highly recommend, they book up quick - but well worth it!

My family has been camping, on and off, at Nick's Lake for at least 40 years. The sites are spacious, the place is quiet, and the lake is wonderful for canoeing. If you like campgrounds with a rec. room, swimming pool and power boats don't come here. If you like quiet, easy hiking, a quiet beach, and a nice size lake for canoeing this is your place.

The rest rooms are fine. They have added a large sink for washing pots and pans with hot water.

We want to thank you all for the very pleasant stay & very nice camping areas. There were four of us who reserved to stay Saturday night so we could go to Enchanted Forest, unexpectedly we all ended up getting Friday off so we all drove up just for the heck of it, we checked with Nick's Lake first thinking at the last minute they wouldn't have anything available, much to our surprise they did. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. Both sites were very clean and spacious and not close to the neighboring site. We do plan on returning in the near future. They get an AAAAA+++++++ .

I am one of the staff members here. It is a wonderful and quiet place to stay . The fish are plentiful, animals are all over but please do not feed any of them, pictures are welcomed. We do have a bear that has been wondering around but PLEASE don't leave your food, garbage, or coolers out. Were trying to get more hiking and waterway information for our campers to obtain. I hope you are enjoying your summer and continue into the fall.

We take our kids to Old Forge every June for camping, and we always stay at Nick's Lake. We have been going for over 10 years now, at least once a year. This is a DEC campground and is kept up very well. Almost every loop has a newer bathroom/ shower building. These buildings have a handicapped large private bathroom, which is so wonderful because I can take my disabled son to the bathroom if my husband is busy (of course there are still the rude people who use the handicap bathroom so they don't have to use the communal one, but nothing can be done for rude and stupid). The showers are also private, but the downside to this is that there are only two of them perbuilding and the line can get long in the mid-morning. The staff are always helpful and like to share tips on great places to eat, local attractions, events, etc.. The deer are abundant and the chipmunks. There is terrific foilage on every site, some sites are on the lake. The lake is man-made and spring-fed, and its like bathwater. Great playground, canoe rentals, and the hiking trail is so beautiful, with a lovely bridge. They have fall camping as well, and its just a riot of color. Highly recommend that sight!!

Room Tip: If you want a water view, you will have to book ahead. It's a popular campground!

Came across this beautiful campsite by chance on our way further into the Adirondacks. Were lucky enough to be given site 99 in Loop E which was the most wonderful site we have ever camped in. Lovely lakeside setting in a clearing in the trees. Plenty of space and not close to others. Good hot showers nearby. Close to the beach. Take a walk there in the evening as the lake in the sunset is stunningly beautiful and very romantic. There were deer drinking at the edge of the water. Definitely want to go back.

This campground was very beautiful and relaxing to stay at. It has plenty of well maintained and modern bathrooms all over the grounds, as well as hot showers. A very nice playground our kids enjoyed and a lovely swimming erea and hiking trails. I plan on returning every year with my family. It is only 5 minutes from Old Forge, yet far enough away to enjoy the outdoors!
