Camping Suggestion About 4 Hours From NYC?

We live on Long Island and have had a camper for about 3 years now. We've only camped on Long Island in that time span but have just finished up a week at Lake George RV Park and it was great. We are already planning to start looking for our big trip for next summer and are looking for suggestions. 1) campground should be less than 4 hours from NYC. 2) campsite should have water, electric and sewer sites 3) must allow dogs The trip will be in July of 2015 with two 28' trailers. It will consist of my parents who are mid to late 60's. My brother and sister in law in early 40's and their two boys aged 7 and 5. It will also be myself age 35. We've briefly looked at strawberry park and odetah online. Any other suggestions maybe west or south of NYC?

RE: Lake George Water Drops??

Take a look at the leaves on the trees above you. Don't you notice all of those holes that have been chewed through them? It's worm and caterpillar pee. Bruce Wow, those worms and caterpillars have an uncanny knack of turning all the leaves into sharp, pointy needles! :-)

RE: Lake George Water Drops??

Out here we call that a rain forest, humidly condensing in the trees and falling as water. It evaporates almost as fast as it condenses. and the cycle continues. Read about "Dew Point" the air temp in the canopy of the trees is lower than where you are setting so it can not hold as much water as where you are setting in the sun. Sounds plausible. A few minutes ago I was staring at my arm when I felt a drop where I happened to be looking at my arm. I saw a tiny drop of water on my arm but it was gone in a second or two.

RE: Lake George Water Drops??

Well, now that the sun is at a different angle I can see the drops. It almost looks like it's drizzling in some areas but it's a beautiful, clear day here today.

Lake George Water Drops??

We're at Lake George RV Park under some trees. Every so often it feels like water drops on our arms and faces but when we look at our arms they are completely dry? We've all experienced this. It hasn't rained and it's a fairly cloudless sky. Like I said, we are completely dry afterwards. What could it be?

Cool RV Pic

So we stopped at a rest station yesterday for a fill up and a quick bite to eat. As we are getting ready to get back in our vehicles another camper parks behind us. My nephew goes back in the truck and brings out a toy that he brought along for the trip. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e191/yourbasicdj/F5AFA79F-7414-447D-BE77-0774C45D2345-561-00000143A93CDCF6_zpsb82c3287.jpg height=400

RE: Lake George Groceries and Attractions?

Are the fishing and pedal boat ponds busy? Like, if I decided to go pedal boating one day would it be a problem with a wait or would I have no problem? If I go fishing would there be a ton of others or would it basically be me and maybe just another person there?

Gas Stations From Long Island To George

We are going from Long Island to the Lake George RV Park in a few weeks. This will be the furthest we have ever gone with the trailer and will be the first time we will ever have to get gas with the trailer so we're a little concerned about finding a proper fill up station. We plan on taking the Tappan Zee and then 87N. Google says it's about 80 miles from home to the Tappan Zee and then about 180 miles from the Tapan Zee to the campground. By those estimates, I'm guessing we would fill up about 30-60 minutes after crossing the Tappan Zee. It's not so much that we would need gas at that point, we'd just like to stop about the midpoint on our trip for a little break. We'd like to walk around to stretch our legs, let the dog out, get gas and maybe have a donut or something. Any suggestions on where to stop with the trailer about 30-60 minutes after crossing the bridge? We have a 28" trailer.

RE: Lake George Groceries and Attractions?

Mosquitos are present for a few hours in the early morning and around dusk. A screen house is not a bad idea. The water must pass state tests and be potable. Whether is taste good or not I can not tell as it has been 25+ years since I've been there. Welcome and I hope you enjoy your visit upstate. Haha, I was talking about the other kind of drink. :-) We always use bottled water for drinking.

RE: Lake George Groceries and Attractions?

Also, can you drink at LAke Geroge RV Park?

RE: Lake George Groceries and Attractions?

Will the Lake George RV Park be buggy? Should we bring screen tents?

RE: Lake George Groceries and Attractions?

I personally would never travel that far trusting the fridge and freezer to stay in the "cold safe" zone for the time you need. These fridges are not insulated like the home version and will probably be warm by the time you get to Lake George. If you choose to try this, I would at least place some frozen stuff in the fridge to help keep it cold. I would think a gallon of frozen water or a bag of ice on the bottom might help. This sounds like a great chance for an experiment with a RV fridge and a wireless thermometer. Just how long will it stay in the safe range while traveling? :) Well, I can sort of try this right now. I've got the camper in my driveway and can turn the fridge on for a day. Then I can throw a bag of ice in there and let the fridge run some more. Eventually I'll turn the fridge off and check the temp in a few hours. :-)

RE: Lake George Groceries and Attractions?

I'll run the possibility of buying groceries here by my family to see what they want to do. I kind of like the idea of getting the rv fridge cold a few days before and then packing it with everything the night before leaving. Then turn the fridge off right before we leave. I don't know how long the trip will be from Long Island to Lake George but I'm considering something in the neighborhood of 6 hours. Just a rough guess. We plan on pulling over for a bit halfway through the trip just to relax and maybe have a quick bite and use the facilities. That would make a great opportunity to fire the fridge up on gas to keep things cool while we are stopped and then turn the fridge off again before finishing the trip there. Any other suggestions on shops, restaurants and other activities to do up there?

RE: Lake George Groceries and Attractions?

Lake George has a ton of attractions,after all it is a tourist town. There are outlet stores right by the camp ground and some restaurants right there too. The Great Escape amusement park is just down the street and Splash Water Kingdom is a few miles away. There is a cruise line that runs on Lake George daily with a choice of amenities and cruise lengths. There are dinner cruises,moonlight cruises,simple site seeing tours,and the prices are reasonable. Fort William Henry is in the village and is a great historic site.You will be in the Adirondack Park which has many hiking trails for every ability if a walk in the woods is your thing. Saratoga Springs is 20 minutes away with the thoroughbred race track, the harness race track and raceino(electronic gaming parlor).Saratoga also has a lot of great restaurants and a ton of night life. There are several grocery stores within 10 minutes of the campground as well as Walmart ,Target and the Aviation Mall. There will be no shortage of things to do or places to go in the Lake George area. The campground is great and has alot to do as well. I live between Lake George and Saratoga and this is a great area to live,work and play. Thanks! Being we have never been there, we want to go up with some kind of game plan and not fly by the seat of our pants. lol

Lake George Groceries and Attractions?

We are heading up the Lake George RV Park in July with 2 campers. It will be myself (34 y/o male) and my mid 60's parents in one camper. It will be my brother and sister-in-law (40 y/o) and their two boys (7 and 5). This will be our first big and by far our longest trip from home in our campers and our very first time in Lake George. Any suggestions on restaurants to hit, attractions to see, shops to see and other things to do? We've done research but would love to hear from you guys as well. Also, I'm wondering what to do about groceries. We have a service here called peapod that allows you to order your groceries online and they will deliver them to your house for a small fee. You also have the option of ordering online and having them do all your shopping and bag everything and then you just go to the store and pay and load up your car with all your groceries that area already in bags. I use it all the time. We don't want to run our fridges on gas when traveling so we'll be going up with no perishable food. I was curious if there were any stores up in lake george that offered a similar grocery shopping experience. It would be great to get up there and either have our groceries delivered to the campground or drive to the store and pick them up. Any ideas if anything like that exists?

RE: Long Island To Lake George Route?

Oh, I'm also looking for ideas on what to do up there as it will be our first trip. There will be my parents in the mid 60's, my brother and sister-in-law about 40 and their two boys 7 and 5. Then there's me age 34. We'll be bringing our bikes and I plan to do some geocaching. Anything else that we might do up there? Any good restaurants?

Long Island To Lake George Route?

I know I asked this question before but I can't find my post. :-( We are going to take two campers from Long Island up to the Lake George RV Park. Our checkin date is a Saturday. Any suggestions on what would be the best route to take there? We've got two 1/2 ton trucks and a 28" and a 26" camper. I'm going to assume that we'd need to get some gas on the way up too. Any suggestions on a good place to stop for gas on the way? This will be our first time taking the campers off Long Island so we're just concerned about finding gas stations and such that can accommodate us with the campers.

RE: Handheld Tire Pressure Guages?

This?....Tire inflator with gauge and pressure release....LINK http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61%2BP8XA4HTL._SL1500_.jpg height=300 LOL, I guess that's almost exactly what I'm looking for but there's something else. The compressor at the beach already has the chuck on it so all you have to do is grab the hose and put the chuck on the valve stem to pump your tire.
