The famous 16-mile Fulton Chain is a heavily traveled route. From First Lake to Fifth Lake the waterway is continuous and lined with summer cottages. At the edge of Eighth Lake, a one-mile carry connects you to Raquette Lake and northern routes.
After Fifth Lake, two carries connect the remaining lakes which are less-developed. They have have several campsites and leantos.
Primitive camping in the Fulton Chain Wild Forest is allowed if a camper's chosen site is more than 150 feet from a road, trail, or any water body.
This is an excellent fishing destination, with the best angling in all of the Fulton Chain WIld Forest.
Lake trout fishing, both during the summer and ice fishing in the winter, is a very popular activity on Fourth Lake. Other species anglers pursue in these waters include Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, yellow perch, pumpkinseed, northern pike, tiger musky, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, rainbow smelt, rock bass and brown bullhead.
