Little Long Lake Primitive Campsite

Featured at this location is an accessible pull-off for unloading a canoe or car-top boat, an access route to the water suitable for use with mobility devices and reserved parking. From the launch site a short paddle across the lake brings you to a primitive campsite. There are two tent pads with fire rings and an accessible privy located here. The facilities are connected by a short accessible trail and are located in a wooded setting adjacent to the lake.

Take state Route 28 north from Alder Creek. Proceed north to intersection with county Route 63 (Round Lake Road) just one-third mile north of the Adirondack Park Line. Take county Route 63 one-half mile to the intersection with Long Lake road. Take a right on the Little Long Lake Road and proceed for approx 1.1 miles, where you will see a small boulder lined parking lot on the right (next to a road intersection). This is the access site.

An accessible parking space and privy are located here, connected by a trail suitable for use with mobility devices, to an accessible picnic table located in a very wild setting on the shore of the Moose River, a short distance from the falls, in Black River Wild Forest.

State Route 28 in Herkimer County. Turn east off route 28 into McKeever. Look for the small sign "access to state land" and the dirt lane (cross the railroad tracks) to the trail head. Be sure to sign in at the register. Take the Wolf Lake Landing Road for 3 miles to the sign pointing left to Remsen Falls. This is a MAPPWD road (motor vehicle access by permit only) with a locked gated. Permit holders can call the Herkimer DEC office (315-866-6330) and get the lock combination. Call ahead to confirm the combination before each planned trip, as it changes. The road from Wolf Lake Landing Road to the Remsen Falls parking is best suited to truck and SUV travel. It is narrow and also rough in a few spots. The road is about one-half mile long to an accessible parking area.
