Reeds Pond is a small pretty pond that is easily accessed off North Lake Road in the Black River Wild Forest of the Adirondacks. The pond offers a great camping, fishing, kayaking and picnic destination. There are short informal paths that hikers can explore and the Black River is located within 500 feet of the camping area. There are a few designated primitive campsites near the pond.

The campsites are FREE to use and are offered on a first come basis. Since of the location close to the pond and the road, expect to see folks camping here from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day. North Lake Road is paved up to Reeds Pond, making this location even more desirable. There are better campsites located on North Lake, but those are usually taken as well. None of these campsites require any permits, unless camping for more than three nights and all are first come sites.

Reeds Pond is located along North Lake Road, at the junction of Farr Road. The GPS coordinates are N43 28.727 W75 00.528 for shoulder parking along the road for those who have a GPS devise. For fisherman, this is a great location with Reeds Pond, the Black River and Mink Lake located close by. There are hiking trail located in the area as well. Look below for a few pictures and a map of the area.
