Our Guide to Uncas Island Camping Sites.

Campsite 1 is located on a wide open peninsula, which are generally our favorite spots. This spot is no exception, but be warned there is little cover so it could get very windy. For sun lovers it’s a perfect spot with an expansive campsite and a fire pit overlooking Glen Island.

Campsite 2 is a very large, flat site. It is open and mostly shady. The site is private and looks towards Glen Island. Continue south on the island and the next campsite you’ll hit is campsite 11.

Campsite 3 is partially shady and surrounded by oak trees. It does not have a tent platform. The site is open and expansive, which is ideal for a large family. Continue south to arrive at campsite 4.

Campsite 4 is one of our favorite campsites! It offers both morning and evening sun and is quite large. It has a tent platform with a great view.

Campsite 5 is a great, open site and is another of our favorites. Offering both morning and evening sun, you’ll catch great views of both the sunrise and the sunset.

My whole family loves Uncas Island! We find ourselves coming back every year, we especially love site 14 because it is up high on the rocks. Sites 1, 8, and 4 are also stunning sites as well. I would be cautious about sites 2, 10, 11 (the ones facing the Glen Island channel) because they are rather shrubby and overgrown, also don't have the best docks/swimming area. Overall, the location of Uncas Island is great because it is close to Glen yet still has amazing views of the lake in all different directions!
