Camping Permits for Kayak & Canoers

Camping permits are required for: (1) any party of ten or more, or (2) any party remaining in the same location for four or more nights. You are responsible for obtaining your own camping permit before your arrival from the State Forest Ranger for the district in which you will enter state lands. New York State now requires that anyone bringing --paying clients-- onto state land must have a Guide’s License. Non-profit organizations are exempt.

In accordance with state laws, (1) properly dispose of human wastes (burial at least 8- down and 150’ away from water or camp), (2) help maintain water quality by not washing directly in the lake or stream, (3) cut only wood that is both dead and down and (4) carry out all you carry in. Boiling or treating drinking water is recommended.

Camping Permits for Kayak & Canoers
Camping is permitted in the Adirondacks on state lands, and these areas offer numerous locations for overnight camping and day use. Adirondack Leantos are for the temporary use of overnight travelers and unless caught in a storm, they should not be used for more than one night. Canoesist should be prepared and carry their own tents in the event that leanto space is not available. In the event of cold weather, or buggy conditions a leanto is not the recommended form of overnight shelter. When camping on State land in the Adirondacks, larger groups must obtain an interior use camping permit for any overnight use (larger groups are defined as approximately 6-12 people). Smaller groups and individuals also require a permit from the DEC if they use the same location for more than three nights in a row. You need to get these permits in advance from the area forest ranger, whose address is available from the DEC.
