Cedar River Flow NYSDEC Boat Access

Central Adirondack Trail and Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28 and State Rt. 30, near Indian Lake in Hamilton County

Excellent put-in at Cedar River campground, upstream of dam. Downstream, the Cedar River is technically Class 2-3 whitewater.

Take Route 30 North through the village of Indian Lake; turn left on Cedar River Road; follow for about 8-10 miles; campsites are on the left. The Cedar River Flow is a small wilderness river in the central Adirondacks. The Moose River flows into it, and is stopped by a small dam with a bridge over top of it at the Cedar River campsites. These campsites are free to the public, and have no running water or flush toilets, but the closeness to the road makes them suitable for families with children. For the more adventurous, there are sites scattered around the main flow, which are accessible by boat only. These sites are well maintained, and only lightly used.

Isolated wilderness sites are located along the shoreline and up the narrow inlet. 40 miles of seasonal dirt roads traverse the Moose River Plains Wild Forest from Cedar River Flow to Inlet. Other old roads and paths branch off the main road and lead to lakes or rivers. Designated camping areas are found along several of the main roads. A brochure on the area is available from the DEC. The area opens to vehicles in the spring after the mud season.
