Take Wolf Lake Landing Road to the Wolf Lake Landing Parking area. Carry your boatd 1/4 mile to the lake. Wolf Lake was merged with Woodhull Lake when the reservior was formed. There is a lean-to, outhouse, and a good place to launch a hand-carried boat. AT the southern-most portion of the lake there is a a dam that holds back the lake. Part of the lake is lightly developed with cabins along the shoreline.

I was thinking the other day it’s been six years since I’ve last been out to Woodhull Lake in the Black River Wild Forest It’s a nice, mostly wilderness reservoir that is accessible most of the way by a one lane gravel road.

There are several roadside campsites along the two mile road, mostly very rustic and somewhat overgrown as they are lightly used.

The lake is quiet, especially on weekdays, and often very placid and quite clear.

There is a nice lean-to at Wolf Landing.

And it’s a nice hike back to Remsen Falls on Moose River.

Good fishing on the reservoir, and you might even spot a deer or two.

I’m thinking of getting back up there again this summer..

Parking Area

For those who want to walk all the way to Remsen Falls, Bear Lake, or the 5.2 miles to Woodhull Lake. Honestly though, at least in the summer, the truck trail is well surfaced and gravel covered, and most vehicles should be able to make it back there, despite DEC warnings, suggesting "High Clearance Vehicles" only.
