Fish Creek/Rollins Vendors 2016

Postby CampADK » Sat May 07, 2016 4:01 pm

Latest I have heard is that there are no changes in the vendors that will be passing through Fish Creek this season, other than the ice cream truck.

The ice cream truck vendor had decided that last year was their last. Not sure if anyone else will be replacing them. Will let you know if I hear something in this regards.

No changes in Rollins. The Paeglow family will be running the boat rental as they have done since 1955!

Confusion and rumours had circulated late last summer that all vendors might be 'kicked out' of Fish Creek and Rollins due to the DEC questioning the legality of the Paeglow family boat rental up in Rollins, as well as the fact that the Fish Creek ice cream truck vendor had let campers know they weren't going to run the truck any longer.

Apparently the DEC decided to allow the Paeglow family to continue running their operation. A petition of over 800 signatures was received from campers who were against their removal from the campground.

You can read more about the background of the Rollins Pond Livery issue at http://adirondackdailyenterprise.com/pa ... iness.html

In the case of the Fish Creek ice cream truck vendor, he had decided that considering all the girls had finished college and that he had some major costly repairs to make on the truck, that he wouldn't bother to run the ice cream truck this year (ie 2016).

Still sad to see the ice cream truck go, it's looked the same for at least 30 years, since I was a child. I'm glad my children at least got to see it for a few years before it retired. Many happy memories waiting for that trailer with the bells on the wheels.
On the plus side, we should save some money!

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!

And a favorite among the kids (at least in our group) - the Caramel Cup - http://www.perrysicecream.com/caramel-c ... roductsNav

These are made by Perry's Ice Cream out of Akron, NY

Just wondering if any body started an ice cream truck for Fish Creek? The rest of the vendors running? Thanks.

Campers have been totally silent on that. I would expect that if an ice cream vendor were to start up, we'd hear about it quite loudly and immediately both here and on the FCP group.

I believe that coffe/pastry wagon stopped also. The wood/ice lady is there.
Happy Camping!

Beans n Bakery has been rolling through in the morning.

No ice cream truck in the Fish Creek park and I don't know if they are running through Rollins or not.

The trolley at the general store has a decently elaborate ice cream menu though.

There is an ice and wood vendor.

It's official! Ice cream (truck) is back starting this Sunday, every second day. Katie will be running the yellow High Peaks Treats truck with both soft and hard Ice cream starting at 5pm as per the old truck. The hard Ice cream is the same brand used by the previous vendor.
