I have been visiting this site since I found out about fish creek pond a little while ago (through Dave). We are looking forward to our first visit at the end of June (thru July 1st).

Cheers

Why is it when I go into general discussion, Fish Creek Pond, I don't always find the subjects with the most recent posts on top ? Is it something I am doing ? It seems like many of the other subjects are sorted that way. I would hate to miss something new !

There are 3 'sticky' topics at the top followed by the rest which should show anything recent in green. The 'sticky' topic icons do have a bug however... so if someone posts a reply in one of those 3 topics, they aren't showing in green as recent/unread posts. I noticed this last week... on the to do list :D

What a wonderful site you have here! Oh and thank you Dave for helping sort out my account activation issues - no idea where those emails went b/c they were not even in my junk mail.

Just thought I'd say hello to one and all! After years of family and friends talking about FCP, my husband and I are finally getting the chance to camp there ourselves. We were only thinking of going up next summer, but out of the blue noticed a lot had opened up the other day, so we're booked for July 29th to the 3rd of August on Site 264
Click for more info!
    
. It all fell into place perfectly b/c we have family camped there the last week of July and first of August. 8) It's a good 13hr drive, but sounds like it'll be totally worth it!

Now we just need some great weather!

Dave -

You mentioned to me a place that you have stored your boat just north of FCP. I believe it was down a road near the fish hatchery - - - I remember driving up there to look at the place, but didn't stop to make any inquiries.

I have a little problem this year that may require my making TWO trips back and forth to FCP (4 hours each way) - - - in order to bring both our trailer and our boat. What a pain !

Was wondering if you could give me the name/number of the place you've stored your boat - or if you have any ideas. We're coming up for two weeks beginning Aug 1 - from the Syracuse, NY area.

Thanks for any help -

Bill (FCP4US)
We've traveled the world - - - FCP is the best place to be !!

Counting down the hous! Just hope the weather and the dog co-operate! Not looking forward to that endless drive along the 401 but Rollins is always worth it!

What a nice site and information!! Thanks for making this available.
Jan and I have been camping in tents, in the Catskills and the Adirondacks for the past few years but have just bought a camping trailer.
A trip to Rollins Pond (Site 251
Click for more info!
    
) in July for a week will be our "dry camping" inaugeration for the trailer.
We will be back for a visit to FCP (Site 256
Click for more info!
    
) for a week in August.
Your efforts helped enormously in picking out a site.
I hope to discuss our plans and get hints from the forum members as the time gets closer, to make sure we maximize our enjoyment of these two campgrounds.
;>)

I wanted to THANK YOU for such a great website! It makes booking sites such a breeze!
We've never been to Fish Creek and have booked Site 122

- Is the water shallow enough to set a lawn chair in? How far could you swim out (if at all) before it drops off?

Glad the website helped and welcome to the site!

This year the water levels are higher than usual. You 'might' likely get your butt wet! :o

Usually sites in that area drop off fairly gradually. I know on Site 116
Click for more info!
    
I am well up to my waist in water out about 25 ft in a normal year. This year has been above normal.

Figure on the water being a bit higher than when this photo of 122 was taken in June 2007. That area of erosion is most likely larger as well since that was 6 years ago!

Remember that technically you aren't supposed to swim off your site (everyone does however). With boat/water skier/tuber traffic you'll want to stay close to shore to be safe!
