Adirondacks or Maine

Our family is looking at the Adironacks or Maine this summer for our camping vacation, but have never been to the Adironacks. We do have an 8 year old and a 12 year old. What is there to do for a whole week with kids there? Thanks!

We have gone to Acadia NP. With the hiking, Bar Harbor, ranger programs, biking... There is more than enough to do for a week. The first time we went we were there for a week. When we were packing up we listed the things we didn't get to even though we didn't sit still. We went back the next year for two weeks.

The Adirondacks are the same. We usually go to Lake placid. There is a lot of Olympic history there. Old Forge is a lot of fun. If the kids like water parks there is a big one there. Get out of town and there is a lot of hiking trails. The Adirondack Museum is a good day trip.

Those are two of my favorite places to go. My DW calls Maine her happy place. Last year my son and I went to Boy Scout camp for a week in the Adirondacks and my DW and daughter went to Maine.

Southeast tip of the Adirondacks is Lake George. You have, Revolutionary War history and Fort William Henry, shopping, amusement park, water parks, boat rentals, a sandy beach on the lake, diner cruises on the lake on vintage river boats including the Minnie Ha Ha, a genuine steam driven rear paddle boat (if it's still in operation), or drive or hike up Prospect Mountain and take in the panoramic view of the Adirondack foothills and Lake George. , Prospect Mountain,

Might be a little pricey, but this campground is 5 star!!!!!!!!!

Lake George RV Park: Lake George Camping & RV Resort Is Premiere Among Adirondack Resorts

They have trolleys from the park out to the main drag..........don't need to drive. With all the activities available in the park, the kids (or adults) will NEVER be bored.......even on a rainy day!

Maine is very nice, but expensive in the summer and you must have reservations in advance. The Lake George area has lots to do for young men and I am sure they will have fun. The baseball hall of fame is nearby in Copperstown and if they are into baseball it is very nice. You will have a great time. Good Luck
