MooseHillock looks fantastic! Definitely going to check into my dates. Any suggestions about areas to camp? We have no kids, so I don't want to be near the pool or playground/fields. Any suggestions are appreciated!

If you have kids and the time, check out the Painted Pony Rodeo. They have their own location and usually have shows on Wed, Fri and Saturday Nights.

Any suggestions about great sites at this park? I understand that you cannot reserve a specific site, but when you check in you can. It looks like I would not like the inner or outer loop, or the "slab" type pull throughs. I like wooded, partial shade/sun. If you've stayed here, please share!

You can request site numbers when you are reserving online. We have had good luck/service getting what we have requested. If you don't care to be near anything in particular, I think your best bet would be Woodland Drive (top right of map). It's not as busy, quiet, with some trees. We have stayed twice in the East section (sites 3 and 8 or 9) and although you mention you wouldn't want to stay on the inner or outer loop, it feels much better then the main area of the park. To us, the main area is very busy and it feels tighter, with trailers right on top of you.

I need to check out this Moose Hillock campground. I stayed at one in NH that is of the same name. I was wondering why people were recommending that as it is not near Lake George but then people were saying it was brand new.

This might be something that I need to check out this August.

I must say Vin, I am a bit confused also. Some say it is brand new, and reveiws on line say that they've been camping here since they were kids. It certainly looks new if you view pictures on line, but many swear they've been there for years! In any case, it looks quite nice, reviews are great and not so great, as is the case for every campground...everyone is looking for something different. I don't really need all the games, pools, activities as my kids are grown and not camping a lot with us. Those jobs get in the way ya know! Just looking for a quiet place to camp with descent sites and hook ups.

Everyone here is such a great help in recommending CG's...keep the information coming!

Btw. You have a nice unit there in the 23IKSS. The wife and I looked into buy that same unit but ultimately I was too scared to pull something that big. We opted for another HW pop up.

I did look online as I was curious about this campground. I am wondering if it is newly sold and is being marketed as new. The pool sure looks new and pretty cool. that apparently is what they envision as their claim to fame. My son's are pretty active into sports and it is nice to have a basketball court and a large field to play frisbee, baseball, etc. This place looks like it would fit the bill. I think I will give it a shot this summer just to see. It is about $20 cheaper per night than LGRV Park.

One thing I really did like about LGRV Park was that they are directly on the bike path. I love to take the boys for a bike ride and the path is safe and a beautiful ride.

Yeah, our trailer is new to us this year. We've only pulled a pop up..for 30 years so I must admit we are scared to pull this too. We will have to practice parking it for sure before we venture out with it. I would have chosen a smaller hybrid, but my husband has big eyes. He's now looking at it at the previous owners and I can see the scared look on his face. Couldn't pass up the deal - it was less than 15K and is brand new.

I am so confused about booking sites in LG...so many different reviews and I hate being disappointed. I also have to watch for small sites, because I'm not sure about our abilities to maneuver the new rig! Wish us luck!

Having not seen Moose Hillock in person I cannot speak to that.

But I do remember that Lake George RV Park has a majority of pull thru sites. They were very easy to get into as they are angled slightly with the road. So you drive down the road and pull into your site at a 2 o'clock angle. The park is designed for the big boys so your 23' Roo will fit very nicely. My Pop up opens up to 30" which is about your size open. This place is made for the very biggest 5th wheels.

I suggest you call them and tell them you have a new camper and are a bit new to backing up the unit and would like a spacious easy to use pull thru site. They have many many. If you look at the Campground Map, you will notice the sites connect the roads. They are pull thru sites.

Lake George RV park is one of very few campgrounds in the USA that have a Woodalls 5 star rating for every Woodalls category.

The Campground is spectacular.

I do not recommend to many places as peoples taste vary, but this is one place that I feel confident recommending.

Enjoy.

Vin.

We stayed at that Adirondack Village Campground 2 yrs ago. It was OK but nothing to write home about. Best checking out the other ones mentioned.

No reason to be confused. There are two Moose Hillock campgrounds! Same owner. Original one is in the White Mtns of NH. Lake George one is new. LG is an RV resort that's family oriented. Big and busy prime season! Sites are level and groomed along with roads. Not at all a rustic CG but also not a field. We tend to camp outside of LG and day trip, but we were invited to meets up with friends at Moose in LG last season.
