Cali just past Tupper Lake, long haul but worth the trip...

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...

AW has been abducted by alliens who are preforming all kinds of test on him. Problem is now they want him to leave but he likes the test too much and wont leave...

Actually, I talked to him last week. With end of semester stuff he has been working two weeks worth of hours into one week for about a month. Should quiet down here soon for him...

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.
