Moose Hillock Cape Ann/ Lake George NY

We just spent the 1st week of August at Moose Hillock near Lake George NY. I've been in the area years ago with a bunch of guys on bikes, but this was our first family camp vacation in the area.This campground is the 2nd owned by the family. The first is in the White Mtns of NH. We have been to the NH one many times, and decided to try this 2 or 3 year old sister campground out. WOW. This campground was carved out of a blank canvas and they obviously took all that they learned from the first and put it into the second. Huge level and very private sites, amazing pool, excellent and friendly service from everyone we encountered. Lake George area has plenty to do as well. From lake activities, to outlet shopping, to historic forts, etc. It's a great combination of a lake valley, surrounded by beautiful mountains and rolling farmland roads. Whether you're retired, bunkhouse full of kids, or young tenters, there is a ton to do.

This campground has been on my short list of places to hit. Perhaps next year. The pictures online look great - glad a forum member was able to check it out. We stayed at Lake George RV Park a couple years back.

Good to hear. Last weekend we took a motorcycle ride around Lake George. It was my first trip up there, and now DW and I can't wait to take the kids and camp there.

We were there in early July and I can't find a bad thing to say about it. We are going back to Lake George this weekend but are staying at Lake George RV Park because some friends and family made reservations for us.

Off topic but can somebody post instructions on how to get the customized US map / states visited picture in their signature?

I just wish the stone areas were paved or grass. It would be easier for the kids to ride bikes, etc. It is a nice park.

Would you recommend the one in NH? We are heading that way next year.

Thanks for the info, we've been looking for somewhere to go up there. About how many sites are there? Does everyone run around on golf carts?

In addition to this park there is Lake George RV Park just up the street from Moose Hillock. It is another large, pricey resort-type well-rated park. There are several smaller places, also.
