DEC Seeks Comments On Cranberry Lake Campground Plan

A kayak on Cranberry LakeDEC is asking the public to review and submit comments on a Draft Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Cranberry Lake Campground located in St. Lawrence County. The UMP will guide future management of the Campground over the next five years.

The campground is located in the western part of the Adirondack Park on the northeastern shore of Cranberry Lake, the third-largest body of water in the park. Approximately three-quarters of Cranberry Lake’s shoreline is bounded by Forest Preserve.

The Public Draft UMP is available for review on DEC’s Cranberry Lake Campground page in the Planning and Management section.  Copies are also available in electronic format on compact disc and may be requested by calling (518) 457-2500.

There will be what DEC is calling a “Open House” on June 23rd from 10 am to 2 pm at the Cranberry Lake Campground Pavilion – 243 Lone Pine Road, Cranberry Lake, NY 12927.

Comments will also be accepted in writing, through July 15, 2016 either by email at or via mail to NYSDEC Bureau of Recreation, 625 Broadway, Albany NY 12233- 5253.
