Map: Franklin Falls Pond – Saranac River Campsites

This shows the campsites south-west of the Franklin Falls Pond/Reservoir. The Saranac River at this point is mostly navigable at higher level flows but it is shallow with lots of big boulders and some rapids. You will be hoping in out of your canoe. Most of the campsites can also be accessed by parking on the shoulder of the road and climbing down a steep bank to campsites along the shoreline.

Ausable Marsh Wildlife Management Area encompasses 660 acres adjacent to Lake Champlain along U.S. Highway Route 9 in the Town of Peru, Clinton County. The land for this management area was acquired in 1950 from the Peru Development Company.

Over thousands of years, water-borne materials have been deposited by the Ausable River at its juncture with Lake Champlain. This has created a fertile delta at the river's mouth which has been utilized by mankind for centuries. Prior to state ownership, the area was used primarily for agriculture and timber harvesting. Today, Ausable Marsh is managed by the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) for a variety of recreational and scientific purposes, including: natural resources education, wildlife observation and photography, fishing, trapping, hunting, and canoeing. One of the primary objectives is to provide nesting and feeding habitat to a variety of waterfowl.

Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain, spelled Pokamoonshine on U.S. Geological Survey maps, and sometimes known as just Poke-O, is a minor peak of the Adirondack Mountains. The name is believed to be a corruption of the Algonquin words pohqui, meaning 'broken', and moosie, meaning 'smooth'. It is located in the town of Chesterfield, New York, United States, on New York state Forest Preserve land, part of the Taylor Pond Wild Forest complex within the Adirondack Park. Due to its location next to the pass through which most travelers from the north enter the range, it has been called the "gateway to the Adirondacks".

The Gulf Unique Area is named for the steep rocky gorge, or "gulf", cut by ice age flooding. The area is especially popular for hiking and bird watching. There are more than three miles of marked hiking trails teeming with wildlife which makes it an attractive destination for non-motorized recreation. The proximity to Canada is demonstrated at the end of the trail, at the US/Canada border.
