  • Round Pond Rec Area

    US Military Academy, NY


    Round Pond Recreation Area is a military FAMCAMP located within the tactical training areas of the US Military Academy at West Point NY, several miles west of the main campus. Note that use is restricted to military personnel only.


    After climbing the rather steep, winding road to the campground, one arrives at the office and camp store.

    Date of visit: Apr 2009

    We selected site C-27 right beside the pond and across from the office.

    Site C-1 is a private site, shaded in the summer.

    Sites C-9 to C-13 are around the edge of a gravel parking lot. Although not the most scenic, they are closer to the bathhouse than other sites.

    Back in 2004 we were here with our grandson, and we chose site C-14, a neat site, complete with a raised deck overlooking the pond. As with many of the sites here, it takes a little work to get level.

    Here's another view of site C-14 from across the pond. The site also has a name: "The Laurels".

    Continuing on around the pond on the camp road, we come to sites C-15 to C-17.

    Sites C-21 and C-22.

    The road around the pond is one-way, and one must go all the way around to exit the campground.

    Also near the bathhouse is the tenting area.

    The bathhouse is heated, clean, and provides free hot showers. There is also a small laundry facility. Its only drawback is that it is located quite a distance from most campsites.

    There's a nice play area near the office.

    The swimming beach.
