Kildare Gate and lands beyond

Hi all,

I am curious if anybody knows anything about the accessibility of lands behind the Kildare Rd gate N. of Tupper Lake.

Obviously the Kildare Club itself is private, and there are private timber holdings back there, but there is a lot of land behind that gate, including state land.

Anybody can contact the Nature Conservancy and receive permission to access Spring Pond Bog behind the gate, but I am not clear on whether it is kosher to visit lands other than Spring Pond Bog using a Nature Conservancy permit? And I imagine it would raise eyebrows if somebody wanted to camp back there but entered on a TNC permit...

Of course you can also get into the heart of that area by canoeing up the Jordan River, but that is quite an undertaking--I speak from experience!

Are there established channels for gaining passage through the Kildare Gate for the purpose of visiting public lands other than TNC's Spring Pond Bog property?

Thanks for any info,

I've been into Spring Pond before a few times... My question is about access to state lands behind the gate (not TNC property). One way to access the state lands is to get a permit from the Nature Conservancy by saying you are going to Spring Pond Bog, but once behind the gate to go a different direction.

So I guess my post boils down to three questions:
1) Is it generally held to be acceptable to use a Spring Pond Bog permit to visit places behind the gate other than Spring Pond Bog.
2) What if you want to camp on state lands behind the gate? (Camping is expressly prohibited on the Spring Pond Bog property).
3) Is there another way to get access through that gate?
