I will second that. Went last year with Cindy and the kids and was pleasantly surprise that I had a good time. I'd actually like to go there again just to see the stuff you miss by looking at other things. Pack the family and go!!!

Calli - Mr. AW is well versed in Adirondack camping, he'll have some answers. I almost stayed at Rollins Pond and Fish Creek Pond camp sites last summer but didnt end up makeing it. They are both just past Tupper Lake.

heres a link to the DEC site on NY camping, you'll see both on there along with many others. Our friend Billy used to spend a bunch of time up there and recomened these. Rollins is much quieter...

Thanks for the camp info. I was able to locate a couple (non) dec campgrounds right in tupper lake. I think its great that the state has these areas but Id much rather go where I can have full hook ups. (water, electric and sewer). Not only that but if you factor in the cost of a dec camp site for a night $19 plus the surcharge its more worth my while to pay the extra 5$ to stay at a private campground and have all the hook ups..

Callie...trust me, you cannot beat the DEC Campgrounds. Even with a 5th Wheel. I have stayed at over 40 different of them over the years and they are WAY better than those Private Campgrounds and your money goes to the DEC and not into someones SUV payment whistle

I can give you some great suggestions on where to stay and what to do in the area. Vanessa and I have every Farmer's Market Venue/Schedule in the entire ADK Park in memory bank. There are lots of things to do and see up there. Most importantly that Mountain Air and scenery will surely take any trouble you have and make it disappear for a periond of time. My top 3 would be Lake Meachum, Lake Durrant and Taylor Pond.

    • Your partially correct Dave. The good morning thread was designed on the food thread as a babbling thread within that forum. Yea some of the posts went sideways a bit but the question got answered.   I don't remember reiny trying to sell anything. He had more knowledge in making different meats then all the rest combined and wasn't afraid to share!
    •     I think Mickey Mouse = Donald Trump
    •   Actually the beef was more about keeping the topics on topic so the info would be searchable and usable. There was one thread that was getting all the traffic and good information and recipes were getting lost in there amongst the silliness and idle chatter.   The situation was between mods and should have probably been handled in private between the mods and Rick or whoever.   You guys can think what you want and LMIT had a harsh way about himself but he was just looking after the best interests of the site in that instance.     RH had something to sell, that's the main reason he was even here.     Time outs were a lot more of a thing around here in the early days of this site when there were a lot more posters than there are now.
    • Somebody should tell conservatives we are under an Obama budget until September 30th, 2017, and that Trump has not had a single policy go through the legislature yet so we are effectively on cruise control from the last administration.

    • So in their infinitr wisdom, the Goppers are floating what the refer to as "Plan B"   http://www.planbonestep.com
    • 56 HERE IN THE boat on Hidden Bay, let me repeat that 56 as in above zero! That kind of number in the fall would be a for sure an afternoon in the Puddle Humper working some late green patch of weeds down a shoreline in search of that late fall bass bite. I would have a rod with a buzz bait handy and when I would come up on some down green I would fling that buzz bait across the top and pump it back to the boat. There would be a good chance for a bass to bust it or more likely as not a northen would try to impress me with a splash and a swirl. The rod would bend some and I would work the fish back to the Puddle Humper. With the northern thrashing at the side of the boat like a toddler trying to get away from his mother at the grocery store I would wait for him to settle down. With years of practice I would grab the northern by his shoulders if fish really had shoulders. I would be able to gage if it was a keeper or not just by how wide I would have to spread my fingers for a good grip.   Lifting the fish out of the water drops would fall back and I would be face to face with a fish that always seem to have that attitude about him. I would pull the hook from the corner of his mouth and give him the fish a look over. Twenty inches, not bad but it was too early in the afternoon to be thinking about supper. I would tell the fish thanks for the action then let him slide from my hand back into the water. The fish of course would do nothing for a second or two then dart off to rejoin his buddies. Taking his position he would brag about how no fishermen could hold him. Back in the boat I would pick up one of the wife's new fluffy kitchen towels that I had borrowed to dry my hands and work a little heat back in my fingers. I would stay on the shoreline tossing a spinner bait and staying were the sun was shinning and with the luck be out of the wind because 56 is still 56, yup that is what I would be doing.   So I am sitting in the cabin, I have the den window cracked open and I can smell the outdoors. The cabin is breathing a little and I think it to is enjoying getting some fresh air to exchange with the stuff that has been here all winter. A few clouds in the sky but lots of sunshine coming in all the south windows. Wife is out on the deck with the brown dog, she has a soapy bucket of water and is wiping down deck furniture. Duncan is touring the grounds taking his time and walking slow, his nose deep into the old brown grass. I can’t see them but I can hear a few birds making noise. The wife comes over to the window to tell me she just saw three bees. Does not surprise me as the neighbor down the road has a hive, I am guessing bees get cabin fever to! Told her go to the greenhouse and grab the screen for the den window, don’t need bees in the cabin.   Sunshine Ray was forecasting mid fifties this weekend but today is a surprise, I was not ready for it. Not much ice on Lake Iwanttobethere and this will put a dent on what is left. Grabbing a jacket I made my way out to the deck and sat down on a chair in the full sun shine. It was just like a day like today should feel like. I lean back in the chair and closed my eyes and took a good listen. Some birds, a chain saw, which put a smile on my face that someone was using a day like today to do chain saw work. I am betting they are thinking winter is not done yet and filling the wood box might not be that bad of an idea. I took a moment to check our wood rack which was half full and decided we are good to go. Then I heard it, and you can’t mistake it for anything else. Someone had started their outboard, what lovely sound!   Well the wife went in the cabin and came out with a quilt and covered me up. I had no problem tugging it around me, I pulled my cap down low over my eye and the brown dog came over and laid down at my feet. Sleeping especially good sleep is hard for me to come by these days so I don’t need much of an excuse to close my eyes and think of buzz baits, lapping water and northerns who think they are something here at Lake Iwanttobethere
