Lincoln Pond provides the opportunity for primitive, island, or "developed site" camping. Large enough to accommodate motor boats, but sheltered from most harsh winds, this facility maintains a bathing beach and provides a very popular canoe, kayak and rowboat rental area. Some sites are in remote areas and do not offer flush toilets or portable water without going back to main part of campground. Three sites are boat access only.
35 campsites, hot showers, trailer dump station, firewood sales, recycling area, picnic area, car top launch site, mobility impaired accessibility.
Motor boats, rowboats, and canoes allowed. Rowboat, kayak and canoe rentals available. Car top boat launch available.
Major species include: Tiger muskie, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and bullhead.
Designated swimming areas are available at some DEC facilities. Based on staffing, some of these facilities may have limited swimming hours/days. For the safety of our customers, swimming will only be permitted when a lifeguard is on duty. Beach hours will be posted at facilities with swimming. To inquire, please contact the campground directly.
