Eleven Mile State Park is located about 11 miles southwest of the town of Lake George . The park surrounds the 3,400 acre Eleven Mile Reservoir. There are nine campgrounds located around the reservoir at an elevation of 8,500 to 8,600 feet. The total number of campsites that are available is 349. There are nine separate camping areas that include: Rocky Ridge Campground, North Shore Campground, Stoll Mountain Campground, Cross Creek Campground, Lazy Boy Campground, Rocking Chair Campground, Howbert Point Campground, Witcher's Cove Campground, and the Backcountry Camping Area. There are very few trees around the shore of the reservoir making for very poor shade conditions. This is a wide open area so expect plenty of wind. Campsites can accommodate tents, pickup campers, trailers and motor homes. Electrical hookups are offered at 52 sites in Rocky Ridge (Loops A, B & D). Showers and a laundry facility are located at the camper services building. Pressurized hydrants are centrally located in the North Shore and Rocky Ridge campgrounds. In the Backcountry campground, 25 primitive walk-in or boat-in campsites are available to visitors desiring a more secluded and natural experience. Each backcountry campsite has a picnic table and fire grate. Many of these sites are in heavily wooded areas offering plenty of shade.
The campground is open year round and is especially popular during the summer months. Reservations are accepted.
