Re: Another Fall Season Question.....

OK, so we can get there by car rather than paddling the "Loop" backwards? AWESOME! :D

Another Fall Season Question.....

I know that Fish Creek is open until November and Rollins is now closed, but can we drive back to Rollins and launch our kayaks/canoes so that we can paddle, fish, etc. around Rollins? My wife and I are planning a trip near the end of September and would love to paddle around Rollins to see what it ...

Re: Fall Foilage Trip Suggestion

Thanks for the input! We are thinking of coming up Thursday, 9/20 thru Sunday 9/23....Should that be a good weekend for the leaves or should we wait until the last weekend in September?

Thanks,

Re: How were the bugs at FCP last week (end of June)?

I think bug problems depend more on the person than anything else. My wife and I spent a week at Rollins (6/23 - 6/30) with our 2 teenage kids and 1 of their friends. My wife got eaten alive, the kids got a few bites here and there and me, I ended up with nadda as far as bug bites go. The wife and k...

Book Stores Near FC/RP?

I realize there are book stores in Saranac Lake, but are there any in Tupper Lake or other places closer to FC/RP? I am looking for all kinds of books, new/old/used that are related to the ADK's. So even a used book store or such will be good.

Thanks,

Paddling into Follensby Clear Pond

Are you allowed/able to paddle into Follensby Clear Pond from Fish Creek Ponds? I am asking because Hickocks has signs all over not to take their rental boats into Follensby Clear. So, I am wondering if it is illegal or not possible or whatever.

Thanks,

Reserve America Question

When you look at their campground map(s), Blue tents means the site is available and Brown means it is already taken. What do the little grey tents with no numbers mean?

Re: Boats at Rollins

I think what you are asking is if you can bring the boat to your Rollins campsite, but NOT use the boat on Rollins. And then when you are ready, you take the boat to the Fish Creek launch and put the boat in the water at Fish Creek. Is that correct? If so, I can't see any reason why you can't do tha...

General DEC Campground Question

If we are staying at Brown Tract, for example, and we want to go check out Nick's Lake, Lake Durant, etc. Do we have to pay to get in to the other campground to look around?

Re: Quick Wood Question....

Sounds like John's wood lot in Tupper Lake might be the way to go for us....Where exactly is it? Is it before, near or after the Mental Institution (or whatever that big white building is) as you head out of Tupper Lake? I am trying to visualize where it is...
