On this Wednesday, we packed up and set our sites for upstate New York As we dropped down the Blue

Ridge Mountain range and across the Poconos, the Catskills and the Adirondack ranges we felt the temperature drop as we meandered through Albany on our way to Lake George, NY.This will be our home for the next two weeks. The temperature averages low 80’s day and high 50’s night; a nice reprieve from Central Florida’s weather!

Opened in 1966 , our campground for this stay is Lake George RV Park.

Their website says, “Our 120+ acre Lake George RV Park offers families the best of both worlds – the peace and quiet of a wooded Adirondack retreat and limitless onsite activities, attractions and entertainment. Just minutes from Lake George Village, it’s everything you need for a memorable family vacation!”

Tripadvisorlists the park’s amenities as 400 RV sites with 50/30 amp, water, sanitary, WI-FI and cable TV. 300 acres. 22 on-site RV Rentals. Indoor heated pool, 2 heated outdoor pools, 2 indoor movie theaters, 3 acres off-leash dog park with dog wash station, 6 lighted pickle ball courts, 4 tennis courts, 2 basketball courts, live professional entertainment at the French Mountain Playhouse (summer and special events), Camper Café, Adirondack Lodge, video arcades, free paddle boats, stocked fishing pond, trolley shuttle service, 3 mi. to Lake George.

We checked in and set up camp; with rug, chairs dog fence and cooking tools ready for the action. We were a bit tired we stayed close to the campsite and relaxed,

Thursday we caught up a bit on chores. Even though we are on vacation, this is our home until Florida cools down a bit. Just like bricks and sticks house, we have to clean and catch up on maintenance.
The afternoon was cloudy and the temperature was pleasantly cool. We took advantage of that and took a drive through Lake George Village and stopped for lunch. The village has a “Gatlinburgish” vibe, but not quite as crazy. We are told the will begin in a few weeks.

The evening came quickly and we scooted down the road to Glens Falls to the Thursday Market and Food Truck Corral and partook in some local meals on wheels. The market surrounds The Shirt Factory so we entered and viewed the nearly 100 creative, talented, and passionate individuals that now consider the former McMullen-Leavens Shirt Factory their home away from home. We looked through many shops and enjoyed the art, jewelry and interesting craft gifts. We’ll be back.

We relaxed around the campsite and checked out the rest of the campground. This place is huge and was beginning to fill up for the Father’s Day weekend. We watched a “newbie” back in his travel trailer and after several attempts got it where he wanted; so he thought. His particular campsite has a little down grade and with help from his party was able to re-situate for better leveling. While all this is going on, his significant other attempted to back up their golf cart trailer and almost jackknifed the whole shebang. We all started camping with stories very much like this! They just finished their setup just before the skies opened up. Such is the view from our site. We took a drive up Lakeshore Drive to check out the villages and mansions along the lake.

Eric, Laurie, Matthew, Jacob and Issac checked in at their hotel and we stopped by to spend time with them on the shares of Lake George. After we went back to the campsite and grilled up dinner and continued our conversation.

Eric rented an open-bow boat and we spent the afternoon cruising around the islands on the southern end of Lake George. The weather and lake were beautiful and the boat ride was fantastic. After the ride we reconvened at the campsite to prepare another grilled dinner. The weather was kind enough to keep the rain at bay until latter in the evening.

Laurie and Matthew played a little golf while Eric, Jacob, Issac and Joe went for a hike on Pilot

Knob Preserve Hike. According to

Alltrails.com, “The out-and-back Pilot Knob Trail is a 4.7 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Kattskill Bay, New York that offers the chance to see wildlife and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, running, and bird watching and is best used from April until September.” The trail map indicated the accent to the gazebo is 1000 ft and and additional 250 ft to the water fall.

Rain is falling heavily today and the temperature is dropping. We were getting over colds and stayed in and enjoyed the rest. We worked on our trip and modified our trip to make a long day of driving through South Dakota just a bit shorter and allowing a bit more time for site seeing. In the afternoon we ventured to the local outlet mall and did some shopping after which we hit a local grocery store; the Price Chopper. It is actually a very nice grocery store that rivals any of the major stores.  

We will stay another week in Lake George and will explore the area even more.
