Why You Should Keep Camping in a Tent!

Postby CampADK » Wed Oct 24, 2012 7:19 pm

I'm all about campinng lakeside.

Sometimes I wish we still camped in a tent, and here is why. How about all this property you'd get at Wellesely Island Site-101!

It's a HUGE site with lots of shoreline, rocks for sunbathing, privacy and views. Nice!

Your big challenge is to get shots of the sites in Saranac Islands SP. Not all sites are islands but are mostly if not all boat access. If you do break down and try some tent camping there are two sites easily accessible by boat that are special. One is on the south west most island in Follensby on the south west corner. A very nice and peaceful spot. The other is in Racquet Flow. go to the Tupper lake boat launch stand on the dock and you will see a shear rock face straight across. There is a spot just big enough for a pup tent at the top. The fireplace is against the rock at the top which makes it a nice reflector in cold weather. You wake up and get a really nice view of Mt Tupper and the rest of the mountain range and there is really good rock bass fishing at the base. With the difficulty in getting sites via Reserve America we may end up with a FCFS site.
