DEC Announces Final Cranberry Lake Unit Management Plan (UMP)

Plan Available Online for Public Viewing

The final Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Cranberry Lake Campground is available to the public, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced today.

The UMP will guide the future management of the campground over the next five (5) years. "The surrounding area is a haven for outdoor recreationists and is well known for its excellent hunting, fishing and hiking opportunities. In fact, 2,795 people visited Cranberry Lake Campground in 2015 during the recreational season of May - October," said Judy Drabicki, Region 6 Director.

Cranberry Lake Campground is located at 243 Lone Pine Road, Cranberry Lake, NY, St. Lawrence County. The campground is located in the western part of the Adirondack Park on the northeastern shore of Cranberry Lake, the third-largest body of water in the park. Approximately three-quarters of Cranberry Lake's shoreline is bounded by Forest Preserve. The campground is adjacent to a 14,452-acre parcel of the Cranberry Lake Wild Forest, while a 7,149-acre parcel of this forest lies on the western shore, and the 129,000+ acre Five Ponds Wilderness Area lies on the southern shore.

The public can view the Cranberry Lake Campground UMP documents on DEC's website at www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/24460.html. Copies are also available in electronic format on compact disc and may be requested by calling (518) 457-2500.
