Re: Webcams for NY Lakes, Ponds & Rivers

Supposedly the Upper Saranac cam is being moved and that’s why it is down right now.

Re: Looks like USL is breaking up!!!

I was wondering what happened to that one. Thanks for the investigative work.

Re: New York State Campgrounds to Reopen!

I will be up there soon.

Sacandaga has been absurd lately. I've never seen so many people (or boats) on non-holiday weekends. I don't even go out Fri-Sun anymore because of how ridiculous it has gotten.

Hopefully Fish Creek will be a little more mellow. I need the relaxation.

Re: DEC Campgrounds Now Reopen for 2020 Reservations

I just checked and there was a site in the low 100' available two weekends from now. Someone must have cancelled because it showed the whole week available for booking.

Great Sacandaga Lake Forum

For those of you who enjoy the GSL and surrounding areas, there's a new forum dedicated to the lake:

http://www.gslforum.com

The site's new and still under construction, but the forum's online. The site should have some useful features and lake reports up soon.

Think spring! :booboo:

Re: black bears

A few years back my husband was out mountain biking - was returning back to Fish Creek on the road from Rollins - when a black bear and two cubs crossed the road right in front of him. He slammed on the brakes and fortunately mama & cubs kept going. He got a great picture though! Can you post t...

Re: black bears

Not personally, but every year I hear stories. There's always a bear warning at the front gate.

They're definitely out there. Especially near the sites with the woods across from them.

It would be cool to put a trail cam in the area of recent sightings.

Re: August 1-5, 2019

We will be there for our first time this coming weekend and looking forward to it. We are first year boat owners and this will be a new experience. Needless to say I am a bit more confident driving the boat and truck/trailer in certain areas than she is. We are staying at site 175. Will this be an ...

Re: August 1-5, 2019

Also, from site 198, about 100 feet out, there's a sandbar where it's only about 2-3 feet deep. Be careful in that area as well.

I marked it in red here on the map for you:

August 1-5, 2019

I stayed on site 198. I normally camp closer to the boat launch, but this site had better sand in the beach area. My relatives stayed on site 36 and the beach in front of their site was all muck. I don't remember it being like that- we used to keep the boat in front of site 35 and 50 when we stayed ...

Re: Canvas cleaners

I use laundry detergent and water with a brush to clean my boat canvas, and then treat it with 303 protectant after it dries.

If it's sunbrella, you can add a cup of bleach to the mix if there's a lot of mold or mildew on it. Just test it out first to make sure it doesn't stain.

I never knew there was 24/7 gas on Upper Saranac.

Any idea if that still exists? Hopefully it's high octane, ethanol-free.

Re: Site 3?

The ultimate setup would be having your own portable dock. I've seen people do it but I have no idea how much of a hassle it is to set one up.

I think campadk has one, maybe he can share what he does for his setup.
