Good CG's <10 hours from Jersey

Hey Gang,

Looking to expand my radius next year. We're going down to Ocean Lakes in SC in June. Looking for a nice place to go in August. Preferably north of Jersey, thinking upstate NY, MA, VT, or NH. We figure the weather will still be nice up North, but we won't be roasting like we would be if we went South.

We'd like a nice clean campground, full hookups, roomy, etc. Nice things to do in the area if we did the Enterprise thing would be a plus. Its me, my DW, and two DDs ages 10, 8.

Any good pointers?

Ocean Lakes is HUGE plan on renting a golf cart to get around... trust me !! The other real drawback to it is no open fires, and you're awning will hit the rv next door, while you bake in the wide open sun. Check out Wild Acres RV Resort in Old Orchard Beach, Me..... NICE place CLEAN and no problems... did I mention cheap as well ?

Visit the Canucks

If you are looking for a Northern adventure, try coming North of the border. We just did a week at the Quebec City KOA and had a great time. We did a day touring Old Quebec City and you would swear you just stepped of a plane in historical France, closest you can get to visiting Europe without crossing the pond.

We also did day adventures to Montmorecy Falls (90 feet taller then Niagara and a much closer view) and the St. Anne Gorge which was a great hiking trip.

Other activities include Whale waching in the St. Lawrence and white water rafting if you are so inclined.

If not Ocean Lakes in SC, than where should I be?

I don't think I want to get into crossing the border quite yet. Aside from Lake George we really haven't been north of Jersey yet. NY, MA, VT, NH, ME - I'm sure there are lots of places to see and enjoy before I go stamping my passport.

I have not camped yet in this NE area since I usually spend all winter up there skiiing, but here are a few sugestions. White mountains area in NH is beautiful. Mass has Normandy Farms if you want to trek into Boston. Also the Springfield Mass area has some decent CG's in the region and the basketball hall of fame, six flags NE.

Then there is Southern Maine along the coast which is on my radar for a trip within the next year or 2.

If you like racing Watkin's Glenn is coming up in a few weeks, though tough to get a nice CG now this late. After it though the Finger lakes area and the state park gorge is a nice place to visit.

Keep in mind that Aug nights do get colder and it has been below normal in the Adirondacks this season. It's already been hitting the 50's a few nights in July and Aug is usually colder.

The lower temps keep the mosquitoes in check. The Adirondacks (even inside The Park) have several places to camp. Check Kayuta Lake CG Kayuta Lake Campground - An Adirondack Campground Located in Forestport, NY. Scenic Adirondack-Style Camping on Kayuta Lake (it is a few miles from where we boondock).

OK, I'll put in a plug for the Thousand Island region. You need reservations for the State CG's as they fill quick, but several private CG's in the area to choose from.

That looks like a good one. Gaga ball pit is a easy sell with my crew. They love playing that...thanks for the link.

Hmm...that sounds pretty nice G1. We've crossed into Canada in the past and it was harder to get back into the U.S.than it was to get into Canada. We would do it again in a heart beat.

Jopopsy: Lake George RV Park is not inexpensive but there is a lot to do. The village is a lot of fun, too. My kids always loved loved going there.
