Historic Interest

The land on which the campground is situated was purchased in 1928. It encompassed approximately 1 mile of shoreline on the west side of Schroon Lake and 1 mile of International Highway. Construction of Eagle Point Campground (which derives its name from a sandy point on the shore line) was started in the years 1928-1929 and eight campsites were added in ensuing years to bring the total to 72.
