Rollins Pond should be at the top of your list if you like canoes, rowboats, or kayaks. All are available for rent at the boat launch livery site, and this long, narrow body of water provides the ideal setting for days of fun, as you take turns on all of them. Adventurers can canoe the waterway leading to Fish Creek or try their luck fishing in Whey Pond, adjacent to the livery area and stocked with trout. For landlubbers, there's hiking, bicycling, and picnicking.
Rollins Pond Campground is located on the eastern shore of 442-acre Rollins Pond.
Boating, fishing, bicycling, and hiking are popular.
The park offers many campsites, hot showers, flush toilets, a trailer dumping station, a boat launch (25 HP or under), boat and canoe rentals, hiking trails, and a volleyball court.
The Adirondack Park Visitors Interpretive Center at Paul Smiths is 18 miles north on NYS Route 30. Lake Placid and the Olympic venues are located 25 miles to the southeast. The Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake is 50 miles south.
