site 50 at RP

Postby redrum » Thu Jan 28, 2016 8:01 pm

Hi;

Wake up! Not a lot of activity on this board :)

Originally decide to skip our trip to RP this year (gasp) due to an extended trip out west. But, change of plans, what's a summer without the ADK? We are back on, but no site yet.

Anyhow, during walks, we keep a lot of notes about various sites, and we have two sets of notes that say 50 is very isolated, no neighbors to the left or the right, but, because it was occupied, we never got to walk it. Plus, there are no photos in the database.

So, anyone, have you stayed on 50 or adjacent to it, and maybe been able to walk it? Opinions would be appreciated.

Jim

There is no neighbour on the other side. See the map navigator which is fairly accurate as far as site placement. http://www.fishcreekpond.com/mapnavigat ... ins%20Pond

We stayed on 50 at Rollins twice. It's a big climb up from the water but nice sunsets and an area down by the water to set up some chairs or even a tiny tent. The showers is the closest bathroom; another climb. It is very private and not much traffic. Early area for the deliveries too. I had a good AT&T cell signal for calls and text. Decent swimming. Shady for sure.

Thanks Dave...

Thank you for all of the detail RF, based on your comments, I have a couple questions:

1) You stayed their twice, would it be safe to say that it is one of the sites that you seek out when making your reservations? For example, I look to 11,12,148, 200, 201, etc.. first
2) A climb to the pond - if we have a kayak/canoe is it an easy carry up/down? Or, best to use the launch?
3) You talk about a sitting area, is that above the pond shore, like a plateau?
4) Finally, yes, the sites look quite private, is the pond shore relatively private? In alot of the sites on RP, while the neighbors might be close, there is quite often brush between the sites providing privacy.

Cheers;
Jim

We liked that loop in July as there is less traffic. Sometimes it was the only site on that side of the hill, and it's much more private than those beyond 50. We did bring a canoe down the hill. It was a little harder bringing it back up, but not too bad. The sitting area was maybe a foot above the water level. It is a long distance to the next waterfront site and not bad on the other side. There was brush when we were there a few years ago. Since you are in a bay, there are campers across the water. Good memories! We had a dog and it was nice as he didn't see people walking by. It was also easy to back my small trailer onto the site. Let me know if you try it out.
