The DEC has announced a major upgrade to their Eagle Point Camp ground.
The facility, which attracted more than 12,000 campers and 1,000 day visitors in 2017, will get new comfort stations, a shower building with improved landscaping and hardscaping throughout the campsite, as well as many other upgrades.
For those unfamiliar with Eagle Point, it’s located on Route 9 in North Warren County. It’s on the west shore of Schroon Lake, about seven miles south of Schroon Village, and two miles north of Pottersville.
The campground has a rich history. From the DEC report:
In recognition of increasing demand for camping in the Adirondacks, in 1928 the Conservation Department purchased 21 acres of lot 89 of the Hoffman Tract, including approximately .96 miles of shoreline on Schroon Lake. The 1928 Annual Report to the Legislature included the passage “The opening of Eagle Point Campsite on Schroon Lake, which was hoped to take place during the past summer, was held up by the failure to acquire title to the land. However much of the work as possible was done during the fall. This site on the International highway will be a valuable supplement to those on Lake George and Sharp Bridge. Construction of the campground started in the fall of 1928 and 64 sites were constructed. Eagle Point opened for business in 1929.
