Re: upper saranac lake manager boat

They are trying to remove an invasive seaweed. I can't recall what the name is, but they have been working on it for a couple of years.

Re: Dump station???

The rinse hose at the FCP dump stations have a brass L-shaped nozzle on them. The L-shaped nozzle will screw off, and you may attach a length of regular water hose to it. If you have an newer RV that has a black water flush input, you can run the hose into that. (I have a 10 ft. length of hose for t...

Camper courtesy.

I know I will get flamed for this thread, but I can take it. Here are a few of my pet peeves about the courtesy of other campers and the failure of others to follow common sense safety laws in the park. The park Rangers are NOT Police officers and they do not enforce State laws. They need to call th...

Re: Sky Lanterns?

Sparklers are now legal in New York State. BUT each county has to OPT IN for their use in that county. Franklin county has chosen to OPT IN so they are legal. That being said, I don't know if they are allowed in State Campgrounds. We did a few sparklers while camping at Fish Creek in July and did no...

Re: Best May ever!!!

The state lifted the burn ban by Friday evening. As far as black flies, have not seen any at all. Been pretty much bug free with the exception of a few noseeums.

Re: Best May ever!!!

OMG!!! The Rangers came around last night to inform us that the wonderful Governor has imposed a statewide ban on open burning until next Thursday. Bad timing on my part as I had just gotten a face cord of new wood. Going to be a lot of cold nights without a campfire.

Best May ever!!!

We have been at Fish Creek since Thursday and have been enjoying mid-summer weather. There are very few bugs and been able to enjoy camp fires in shorts and t-shirts. This will truly be a May to remember. Planning to stay until the 17th or maybe longer. Very surprised that more campers did not show ...

Re: FC issues

One thing I learned a long time ago is that the Park Rangers do not like to get complaints. To them it sounds like you are saying they are not doing their job. If you go to them with a complaint, you had better be squeaky clean, by that I mean that you had better be following ALL the rules to the l...
