Campsites in essex with fishing lakes
This is far different from the other areas which, save for a few minor inholdings, are Wilderness and motorless.The Essex Chain numbers also differ from the number of people hiking into OK Slip Falls, now part of the Hudson Gorge Wilderness area.This contrasted with the fairly heavy use of people hiking into OK Slip Falls, which is part of the Hudson Gorge Wilderness area.Through a freedom of Information letter, I requested trailhead logbooks from the DEC to look at the use of other flatwater canoeing locations in the Adirondack Forest Preserve – Little Tupper Lake, Low’s Lake and Lake Lila.One thing that strikes me is that the experience at Lake Lila, Little Tupper Lake, and Low’s Lake is a known commodity, whereas the Essex Chain experience is still developing.The Gooley Club members are still driving motor vehicles in the tract, the public is riding bikes through the area, and DEC is patrolling in trucks.These are all wonderful motorless areas that provide incredible flatwater canoeing and overnight opportunities.I had certainly envisioned that the Essex Chain Lakes would become another such vaunted Wilderness destination where visitors were guaranteed a wild experience, away from motor vehicles. I reviewed trailhead registers from June through August in 2015 at the Deer Pond parking lot, the principal launching part to canoe on the Essex Chain Lakes, as well as at Lake Lila, Little Tupper Lake, and the lower dam at Low’s Lake.
I have heard from many who have gone into the Essex Chain Lakes area and encountered relatively few other people.
Take a fishing holiday or short break in Essex and enjoy tranquil surroundings and well stocked reservoirs & lakes.
Several of our Bed & Breakfast farmhouses and holiday cottages offer fishing on-site, and many farms will have fishing nearby - just search for the 'Fishing' symbols in the advanced search option.
The Essex Chain Lakes area, as is well known, is one of the state’s newest acquisitions.
The public is very curious about this area and still getting to know it.
