Re: August 1-5, 2019

The drive from site 175 to the boat launch will take about 10 minutes. You’ll have to watch passing other vehicles where it gets narrow.

Re: August 1-5, 2019

Welcome new boater! Trim up from boat launch to 10ft or so past the buoy on the other side you of the bridge then good all the way to site 175. Avoid getting to close trimmed down past sites 66 to about site 90. Very shallow! We have had our dock setup on 170, 178 and 179 before. Should be fine on 1...

Re: August 1-5, 2019

Great report! Was there last in early/mid July. Heading back on Monday. As per other years didn't see any real change in the channel to Upper Saranac. I'm always trimmed up well so rarely rarely ever hit anything. We camp in many areas around the ponds and I would agree that some areas have more 'mu...

Also be sure to try out the new Ray Brook Brewery in Ray Brook across from Tail O Duh Pup. Great beers and interesting/good food!

Re: 2019 Campfire Wood

For a volume purchase: If you are coming in from the south, I'd suggest John/George at the bottom of the hill just outside of Tupper (North end). Not sure how dry it is this year. There is another place coming in from the north before you get to Paul Smiths as well in Mccolloms (about 20 min north o...

Re: First timer

Welcome Kevin! There are no places to eat on any of the connected waterways. Site 175 works well for a boat. You cannot leave your vehicle and boat trailer at the boat launch. Ask a friend to help? You can watch sunsets right from the ponds (the narrows is a good spot) or head out onto Upper Saranac...

Re: Verizon Cell Service

2 bars LTE on site 251. Works better than on site 207. Speed is always better early am before other campers get on. Gets a bit slow if the campground is fully or on crap weather days.

Re: Verizon Cell Service

Hi Callie,

Service is better than about 3 years ago. LTE is available. What site on the peninsula loop? It will vary there. I have Verizon so I can bike over and check your site.

Re: Site 3?

My dock project can be found at http://www.fishcreekpond.com/dockproject.php . I have tweaked it over the years to make it easier to transport and lightened it a bit with permanently installed fence boards instead of deck board sections and added and addition an additional triangle section for our h...

I've also noted to reshoot site 151 for NY State Campsite Photos when I am there next time.
