Lewey Lake campsite is a remotely located DEC campsite situated ½ way between Speculator and Indian Lake, approximately 12 miles from both. Because of the shallow boat access, the beach launch does not allow float-on, float-off trailer launching, and is suggested for only small and light trailered boats. The facility day use fee is required to use this boat launch. Water access between Lewey Lake and Indian Lake is by portage over the spillway underneath the bridge on Route 30, usually restricted to small boats, canoes and kayaks.
HOW TO GET THERE
From the intersection of Route 8 & 30 in Speculator and drive north on Route 30 for 12.2 miles. Lewey Lake Campsite entrance will be on the left side of the road as you drive north.
