Tent Site Locations in West Canada Lakes

I'm looking for a map (paper or electronic) that shows all of the designated primitive (tent) camping sites in the West Canada Lakes wilderness. The locations in adjoining areas would be a plus. Any ideas?

The online Adirondack Atlas has a setting to show primitive campsites, but I am not certain that it is comprehensive. CalTopo and WayMarkedTrails don't appear to be very helpful, nor is the Trails Illustrated hardcopy map.

Many thanks in advance!

I don't know why more people don't bother to look at the NYSDEC website for information. What you seek is available with a simple search on there.

Yup that page has two maps one will show you where all the Lean-tos are as well as the primitive campsites. Make sure you tell us how your trip turned out by posting a trip report here afterwards.
