Second Lake, Treasure Island NYSDEC Campground and Day Use Area

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, near Old Forge in Herkimer County

Treasure Island comprises two small islands of Forest Preserve between the First and Second Lakes of the Fulton Chain.

Begin in the hamlet of Old Forge, on the south side of Route 28, immediately adjacent to the Town of Webb Tourist Information Center. A nearby municipal parking lot allows long-term parking. Before starting, consult the large map mural in the parking lot and sign the registration book. From Old Forge, you pass through about 1.5 miles of winding stream and come out into First Lake at its western extremity. Keep right of the channel buoy and head slightly southeast toward DeCamp Island, a State-owned property with four designated campsites and no open fires. Passage from Second Lake into Third Lake is not apparent. Mileage from Old Forge to the head of Third Lake is 4.5 miles.
