evening at boat dockCamp Wildwood is a family owned and operated lakefront rental cottage and campground business on Black Lake in the North Country of New York. Situated on 4 acres with over 600 feet of shoreline, Camp Wildwood sits on Mitchell Bay on the quiet south shore of the lake.

Just 2 hours north of Syracuse (an hour north of Watertown), Camp Wildwood is located across the twin bridges from Edwardsville where groceries, gas, bait & more are available.

Our camps offer a uniquely quiet, private and secluded setting.  One of the special treats on this side of the lake is watching the sun set over the water.

Each cottage is surrounded by trees and rolling lawns, and has an adjacent parking spot. The screened fish cleaning shack with water and electricity is the place to prepare your day’s catch for your evening meal.


A Fisherman’s Paradise – Sportsmen from all over the world come to fish Black Lake, often referred to as Nature’s Fish Nursery, for the abundant supply of largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, northern pike, walleye, muskellunge, bullhead, catfish and a variety of pan fish including perch, bluegill and crappie.

For those looking for more than fishing, you’ll discover plenty to do. Enjoy a drive through our beautiful farmland. Along the way find roadside stands and shops where our Amish neighbors are offering everything from hand-made furniture and baskets, to home-made jellies and baked goods, to some of the most delicious fruits and vegetables you’ll ever taste.

Just a short drive away is Alexandria Bay, the heart of the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River. With boat tours of old castles, views of stately mansions from bygone times and scuba diving around an old sunken ship there’s certainly plenty to do for history buffs, boaters and shoppers. And just over an hour away you can visit our neighbors to the north, in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa.
