anyone camp yet in FCP?

Postby karen230 » Mon May 07, 2018 10:17 am

Hi, has anyone camped in FCP or Rollins POnd yet this year? Just realized that we leave in about 8 weeks for our vacation and starting to think about what needs to go with us. Last year we brought our trailer but this year, DH wants to go back to renting a trailer and bringing out fishing boat which means more work for me :roll: . Anyway, anyone who has camped this year, how has the weather been so far? Rainy? Really cold? I know it is early in the season but that doesn't mean the weather hasn't been good.

We know a few that have been there since opening. It has been cold and the snow lingered well through April. The ice has just recently left the ponds!

Friday was the wind storm that took out a few dozen trees I gather. Sounds like this past weekend was about the first to seen seasonally warmer weather.

Regardless it won't have any effect if you're not going for another 8 weeks. Enjoy!

Here was the week before opening weekend...

Is there still snow up there? I plan on arriving Friday and fishing Upper Saranac over the weekend.

Dave offers a link to the Chapel Island webcam on the Homepage for your viewing pleasure! Ice is out, snow is gone, sun is poking through, but no leaves yet on the hardwoods. At least not on Chapel Island, anyway. Get out there!
Tight lines!

Plenty of rowdy people up there this weekend. Drunken yelling, fireworks, throwing up in the bathroom at 4 AM, the whole 9 yards. Had a good time despite the weather. Very windy on Saturday.

Heading up there this weekend. Anyone have news about the black flies? Also are the water spigots threaded?

They'll be out unless it's windy or raining.

Threaded spigots. Don't be one of those people hooking their trailer up to the tap unless you have a Y attachment so I can get water too. Saw someone getting yelled at by the front desk guy because they blocked the exit while filling their fresh water tank from the community tap. Common courtesy goes a long way at this place.

July 8th can get here fast enough. I'm bringing a first-time camper this year. It'll be hard for any other place to exceed FC, so I hope it doesn't ruin her for life.

Yes as of today we have all three vendors.

Beans and Bakery does the coffee and baked goods on Fri/Sat/Sun mornings, Katie does morning ice run and evening ice and ice cream run, Jean does wood run but he is not too consistent this year.

Ice is $3.00 I believe. Jean sells a rack of wood for $9

Started stalking the weather for our trip NEXT WEEK!!! Weather looks to be pretty good, not too hot, not to cold. Chance of rain/t-storms but we all know that is always a possiblity in FCP.

See you all real soon!!!! I am so incredibly ready for our vacation!!!
