This remote spot is a favorite for anglers and naturalists. 10 acres of developed campground is surrounded by over 8,000 acres of Wild Forest state land.
Located on Silver Lake Road, 9 miles northwest of Ausable Falls on Route 9N. The boat launch is located just past the campground entrance booth and provides the only public access to Taylor Pond.
Taylor Pond is 4 miles long and covers 813 acres, providing plenty of scenic water for paddling as well as fishing for lake trout and landlocked salmon. Spend a few hours, a day, or a few days exploring the pond's scenic waters deep in the Adirondack wilderness. Watch for loon and osprey, both known to nest near the pond. For a real backcountry experience, think about camping at one of the pond's five sites that are only accessible by boat.
Motorboats, rowboats, canoes, and kayaks allowed. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation operates a campground at the northeast corner of the pond. Rowboat and canoe rentals available. A 12 mile snowmobile trail goes around the pond for hiking.
