This is why we love camping

We visited Fish Creek Pond Campground June 20 - 24th. We were told that this was just before NY children got off for summer vacation. It was beautiful and peaceful classic camping. After they play taps at 10 pm, it's completely quiet. All the sites are on the water and fairly level. We had site 110, which was great, but they're all good. The bathrooms are old, but cleaned every morning. The showers are newer, but in the next camp, so you have to drive there. There are no utilities. The staff is super diligent and helpful. An ice cream truck and a firewood truck made the rounds. There's a little convienience store just outside the gates (turn right), which turned out to be a real gem. They have a good assortment of the basics packed into their little shop and decent coffee at their little coffee bar. There is no canoe/kayak rental on Fish Creek Pond. There are two places nearby to rent them, but you have to haul them yourself. We visited Lake Placid (major construction all over - avoid it!), John Brown's farm, and drove around on one rainy day to see the nearby small villages. It depends on what you're looking for in a camping experience, but we enjoyed the simplicity and quiet beauty of this place.
