Winter Overview: The town of Inlet highway department plows a four-car parking area at the beginning of the campsite road. Cross–country ski trails are groomed for both skate and traditional skiing. Always check ice thickness before walking on local lakes. The lake sees a small amount of snowmobile travel during the winter. Ice fisherman enjoy good action with splake and perch.
Limekiln Lake Campground is run by the DEC. You can fish from any of the lakefront sites as well as from the public boat launch. There's splake and brown trout for the advanced fisherman, and sunfish, bullhead, and perch for the smaller anglers.
The campground has 3 miles of paved roadway that is great for road biking in the spring, summer, and fall. In the winter the town of Inlet grooms a 3 mile loop for cross-country skiing. These are double and single-track trails that connect to Fern Park. Be aware that there may be a few wet sections that have to be walked.
