Construction began on Limekiln Lake State Campground in 1960 after the state purchased land from the Gould Paper Company.  By 1964, all of the current 271 campsites were completed.  The campground is located near Inlet, off NY 28 on Limekiln Lake Road.  The GPS coordinates are N43 43.303 W74 47.510 for the entrance to the campground for those who have a GPS devise.  The campground is usually open a week before Memorial Day thru Labor Day each year.

Each of the 271 campsites have a picnic table, a fireplace/grill as well as a "bear locker".  The campground requests that all visitors leave all food/coolers in these lock boxes as the area has active bears.  No food should be left in vehicles, tents or anywhere on your site.  You will probably see bears at this campground.

The campground has a sandy beach with a swimming area, picnic area with tables and fireplaces, a bathhouse with hot showers, flush toilets, a small boat launch and rowboat as well as canoe rentals.  To find more information on this campground check out the NY DEC website.  You'll also find a Campground Map.  This campground is located in the Moose River Plains Wild Forest of the Adirondacks.

The campground has a nature loop trail that links up with the Third Lake-Limekiln Creek Trail. The nature trail is known as the Old Dam Nature Trail and is a nice, short 1.6 mile loop hike by two old dams along Limekiln Creek.  Use the link for more info on this hike including a video, description and a map.
