Beautiful week!

Postby humormeplease » Wed Aug 02, 2017 6:31 pm

7/29-8/5...came prior to our registered day to find a walk up for one night. Keep forgetting NYS government is in charge of things here. Empty sites as far as the eye can see from the main gate booth yet at 5pm they won't let you use one for the night with pay. I get that online it's 3 night minimum. So we had to camp out in the overflow lot. Weather has been sunny and high 70's with comfortable evenings with just a shower last night while sleeping and another quick one this afternoon. All n all never a bad time at FCP...we'll be back for another week starting Labor Day when most of the booger- pullers are heading back to school. Still find distasteful campers who continue leaving leftover trash in the showers yuck!

Glad you had good weather. I to notice all the empty sites also. I have reserved sites for one or two days. I never heard of 3 day minimum ? The best time to camp there is in September and October very quiet .

Not sure about the showers. 75% of the time the last person leaves soap, huge bottle of shampoo or their coveted 'Axe' deodorant in the stall. Could make a killing reselling on Craigslist! People get very forgetful once they are clean!

Thanks for clearing up the 3 day minimum. I never realized that before July 1 . That's the nonsense in New York state.
