Re: Verizon Cell Tower Forthcoming in Lake Clear

Re: anyone camp yet in FCP?

We know a few that have been there since opening. It has been cold and the snow lingered well through April. The ice has just recently left the ponds! Friday was the wind storm that took out a few dozen trees I gather. Sounds like this past weekend was about the first to seen seasonally warmer weath...

Re: Well, the calendar says FCP is OPEN!!!!

Van Hovenberg Cross Country ski center over in Lake Placid is stil open with 30km of groomed cross country ski trails. Winter hasn’t let up on the northern ADKs yet! The Hoel Pond webcam just north of Fish Creek also shows the pond still iced over. Winter still holding on!

Re: Site pictures for Rollins pond wrong

Sounds like you click on 'Campsite Photo Guide' here on this site which will bring you to the Fish Creek photos by defaul, but you can all select Rollins or any other DEC/State Park for that matter. They are all on the NY State Campsite Photos website at http://www.campadk.com/campsitephotos/ . All ...

Re: Rollins Site 41

The gravel they use isn't big and it isn't fresh. It wouldn't be bad. Definately nothing like some campgrounds that use big pieces of gravel which is horrible.

Re: Three Nor'-easters in 2 weeks?????

We will just have to embrace the weather a little longer I guess. I'll be in Lake Placid the first week in April and will most likely head over to check out Fish Creek on opening day. I post a report and photos when I return. Looks like I might get another shot at camping and skiing at Fish Creek ag...

Re: It's my lucky day!!!

Excellent! Can't imagine being at Fish Creek and not having a boat (or kayaks/canoe etc).
Jim is a great guy!

We are on the backside of winter now. Fish Creek opens this season in a mere 82 days! lol

Re: Moreau Lake State Park

Great review! We have camped there 3 times in recent years ourselves. Love the atmosphere and the beach is really nice. Great woodsy feel. Close to Saratoga Springs as well! For anyone interested I have over 1200 photos of all the sites at Moreau as well as the beach area. Visit http://www.campadk.c...

Re: Is the park accessible during the off-season?

You can visit the campground year round. There are often people hiking in the fall/winter. We visit several times in the off season to walk around or cross country ski. Road is plowed as far as the Rollins cutoff.

No camping though!

Enjoy!

Glad you got to make it up here! I agree Killbear is really nice. Have only been once. Did you make Killarney?

Re: Drones

Yes it sounds like they are illegal in state parks now. Have heard several reports of this at various state parks. Odd the DEC has not specifically addressed this as it pertains to DEC campgrounds, just the forest preserve and primitive/wilderness areas... http://www.adirondackalmanack.com/2017/07/t...

Re: Verizon Cell Tower Forthcoming in Lake Clear

Thanks for posting that info! Explains a lot. Couldn't figure out why it would take so long to get the tower in service. I have a Wilson Antenna and amplifier which works well on our travels but never has, and still does not work to boost the Verizon signal at Fish Creek. I can increase the number o...
