Re: Fish Creek/Rollins Vendors 2016

Had a facebook chat with Phil over at the Trading Post. After my SIL did some detective work she located the brand that made the ice cream flavors we all loved so much on the truck. Phil said he'd be happy to carry the flavors - which is fantastic news! Here is your Adirondack Mountain Raspberry: ht...

Re: Save the Ice Cream Truck and other Vendors!

I'm hoping it was all just a bad dream and the first campers of the summer season will report things are normal and the vendors are still coming through. Later takes on the ice cream truck was that it was not NY State but the owner who was ending the beloved trips through FCP. We heard the owner did...

Re: Reserving Sites for Summer 2016

I think we have been lucky or just blessed. This is the eleventh year I have been handling the bookings for the family. I have always been able to get three sites together, and this year I got four together. Perhaps because we are flexible with dates? We book FCP and then build our summer around wha...

Save the Ice Cream Truck and other Vendors!

I am seeing on Facebook that today was the last day for the Ice Cream truck, that NY state will not be issuing permits to vendors to come through the park anymore. While I am not certain if this is official news, there is information on who to write regarding this foolish decision. Do we know the co...

Re: Revisiting Cell Reception at Fish Creek

Nope. I switched from AT&T to Verizon this year. In some areas you do get 3G. Worked 'ok' on site 116 over Memorial. Managed to do email, FB and even upload the odd photo, but it wasn't always reliable. Don't think there has been any upgrades in service in the area... perhaps its best to wait a...

Re: Interesting pending legislation

We have had several bad situations that needed curbing prior to the final removal from the campsite. They occurred when the individuals threatened the ranger. It would be nice to get back to the old days where disruptive behavior was instantly corrected before it got out of hand. Hope it goes throu...

Re: Parking

Many have noticed and commented on the speeders - this has been a problem in Rollins and in Fish Creek. We noticed one site that had four tents and five cars. Since we always follow the rules on this - we were perplexed. We have also been given the business for having an extra car on the site who wa...

Re: Generator use

Great post! For those camping in tents that need things charged up (for whatever reason) there are now some excellent solar generators on the market. After doing research on the subject, we purchased a Goal Zero yeti 150 and solar panel. No noise, no fumes - and so long as there is sunshine, you can...

Re: Camping courtesy

Can't say I disagree. We had a family next to us in a rented RV. They had a kid about 8 years old who consistently threw his ball into the side of one of our tents. They had a dog who was never kept on a leash except for the time they left for several hours, leaving the dog alone on the site. Not to...

Re: Trying to book 5 sites for family trip

Not sure if the truck makes it all the way through - but it was a huge let down last year. They changed brands of ice cream - and the brand they carry now is nothing near as good as in years past. No Adirondack Mountain Raspberry anymore - my God-daughter was truly heart-broken last year. She looks ...

Re: CampADK Trip Report June 30-July 14, 2013

Yeah that Facebook thread went from a normal exchange of opinions and escalated into a major troll-fest. :shock: Dave, I find it ridiculous that you would get blamed for someone not being able to book a reservation. How juvenile. Ah well, I'm sure you have more people thankful for this website than...

Re: CampADK Trip Report June 30-July 14, 2013

I am truly glad that post on the Facebook page disappeared - it was foolish to put down a loved long tradition - but many ended up looking bad as the comments got more intense. No one needs or wants that kind of nastiness associated with FCP. The early morning skiier was less loved for the first few...

Re: CampADK Trip Report June 30-July 14, 2013

Just came back from 10 days on 123 , 124 and 125. Let's set aside the not-so-happy things - lots of black flys - A first experience for us at FCP. The change in brands on the ice cream truck was a shock - and a major let-down. The children (and some of the adults) in our group dream of Adirondack Mo...

Lovely to "meet" you. Welcome! We hope you'll make the journey to FCP - there are not enough words to express how worth the trip it is. A tip - if you do plan to discover Fish Creek Pond, make this site you're friend and ally. You will get far more from Dave's efforts on this site than you...
