About Rollins Pond Campground (DEC)

Lake Side Rating

The Rollins Pond Campground is the quiet alternative to Fish Creek as well as serving as the overflow area for Fish Creek. Sites tend to be spaced out more providing for more privacy and less noise. There is also less traffic up in Rollins. Many campers accustomed to a more serene camping experience will appreciate Rollins over its more lively sister, Fish Creek.

Rollins features 284 campsites, 226 are directly on the water.

Rollins accommodating all equipment from tents to 40ft RV's although it is more suited to trailers 30ft and under. Some sites are situated on hills above the shoreline.
