Magic Pines Campground is located on US Route 9 just 3 miles North of the town of Lewis, 8miles north of the county seat, Elizabethtown. We serve the High Peaks area of the Adirondack Mountains to historic Lake Champlain.
(Travelers should not confuse Route 9 with Route 9N, 2 entirely different roads).
Many attractions are minutes away. A number of Golf Clubs (at least 5) of various levels and prices are within 20 minutes drive. Lake Champlain ferry service provides ready access to Vermont. Ausable Chasm and Santa's Workshop at the North Pole are nice day trips as are the Olympic attractions at Lake Placid, a 35minute scenic drive.
If hiking or rock climbing is your thing, Poke-O-Moonshine is 5 minutes away, and Coon
Mountain with its Hiking Trails is just down the road (15 minutes). There are many more Hiking Tails etc. in this area. A request to the Lake Placid & Essex County chamber of Commerce will bring this information to you. The fax number is 518-597 4646, mailing address is 216 Main Street, Lake Placid, NY, 12946, or Telephone - 1-800 447-5224. Also check out www.goessexcounty.com on the internet.
Sports fishing of all kinds are nearby; walk to Trout fishing on the Boquet River, Lake Trout, Pike and Salmon fishing in Lake Champlain. Charters are available. There are Bass and other native fish in the many ponds and streams of the Adirondacks.
If you are a stargazer, the stars are fantastic here as there are no city lights nearby.
Colored foliage is a premium in this area in mid-September and early October. The colors here are some of the best in the North Country, a good time to try Horseback riding at one of the many stables in the area. We regularly see deer and wild turkeys while driving local roads.
On the Campground you will find a playground, Basketball Court, Tennis Court, Mini Putt, Horseshoes, Table Tennis, and other games available at no extra charge.
Campfires are the norm here, and, if you are around on a Saturday night, and if you wish, you may get to enjoy some of "Magic Pines" own brand of entertainment.
Rainy days sometimes occur, a good selection of board games and crafts are available in our rec. hall. Instructors for crafts are available.
Oh yes, relaxing and swimming in our large pool is a bonus.
