Hiking/Backpacking/Camping/Stealth camping near Lake Wanoksink in Harrinam SP


I would like to ask if you can recommend any tent sites for stealth camping at Lake Wakonsink that can accomodate 2 tents. Preferably it should be in a more secluded area. I'm familiar with park rules and have camped at Pine Meadows Lake and Lake Skenonto before. I love those two places, but want to check out Lake Wanoksink this time.
Thank you.

If you've camped at Pine Meadow Lake, then you probably have a more than passing familiarity with the area. Lake Wanoksink is accessible via a number unmarked trails and woods roads, most of which start near the northwest corner of Pine Meadow Lake. I have never camped at Wanoksink, but I've hiked through the area a number of times and seen a few flat areas that could be used as tent sites. My recommendation is that you day hike and scout the area before your planned overnight, and identify a few good sites. That way, when you actually backpack in, you'll have a couple of alternatives.

I can advise on anything having to do with hiking and backpacking skills and equipment, including map and compass and orienteering skills. I cannot advise on the use of GPS devices. I cannot advise on car camping or group camping (10 or more people). My primary geographic expertise is in the US Northeast, but I know how to find information on hiking and backpacking just about anywhere.


I've been hiking and backpacking for about 45 years, including section hiking the entire Appalachian Trail. I have hiked extensively in the New York Metropolitan Area, as well as various other areas from Georgia north, including upstate New York, New England, and Eastern Canada.
