MEACHAM LAKE CAMPGROUND
This 1,203 acre lake offers some of the best family-friendly camping in Franklin County. The campground is located in a very scenic area surrounded by the northern mountains and extensive tracts of Wild Forest state land. Meacham Lake can accommodate all types of camping units from small tents to large recreational vehicles. The west side of the campgrounds even offers a more primitive experience with walk-in sites for the more adventurous campers.
In addition to the 223 campsites, you'll enjoy amenities such as hot showers, flush toilets, trailer dump station, recycling center, boat launch, picnic area, two picnic shelters, sand beach with bathhouse, boat and canoe rentals, firewood sales, ice sales, and a playground.
While camping at Meacham Lake, you'll never get bored! If boating is your thing, you're in luck. Power boats, rowboats, and canoes are all allowed. The new boat launch on the eastern shore has a concrete ramp with floating docks designed for use by people with disabilities.
Spend a day fishing this beautiful lake! Fish include northern pike, yellow perch, and bullhead. Be sure to purchase a fishing license here.
Debar Mountain at Meacham Lake is a beginner to intermediate hiking trail located right inside the campgrounds. St. Regis Mountain in Paul Smiths is just a short drive away and both mountains offer amazing views of the surrounding mountains and lakes.
Another family favorite activity is a day at the beautiful sandy beach. Whether you'd like to relax by the water or watch the kids play on the playground, this beach offers hours of entertainment the whole family can enjoy.
