Not waterfront but Moose Hillock is a great place. Lots to do around Lake George without having to spend too much time in the kitschy little tourist trap town itself. The lake is awesome, super clean, lots of fish, boat rentals. We love it there!

We have been to Higley Flow SP many times; it's a great park. And we've camped in a few NYSPs along the St Lawrence - Wellesley Island, Cedar Point, Kring Point and Coles Creek - all are very nice. And we're adding Robert Moses to this list - twice - this year.

What would you recommend out of those for the St. Lawrence? I've camped on the Ontario side and always wanted to go "across the river"

My wife and I camped at a NY State Campground and LOVED it. Selkirk Shores State Park near the Salmon River in Pulaski NY. We had a pop-up at the time, and hooked to their electric; used their bathrooms. Not sure about dump-outs and water/sewer. But at $15-19/night (plus $5 for non residents) it was a bargain. We go in September/October to fish the salmon run. Great place.

Plus, I hear Jericho Mountain in New Hampshire has free camping for the 2016 season as part of their start-up promo. I'm not sure their water/electric/sewer status, but you might want to check them. It's in Berlin NH which is very close to the CA border.

We spent a week at the Lake Placid KOA last September and loved every minute of it. Don't know how your ur kids feel about the Olympics but we were impressed with all the things to see & do there. We purchased one of the "passports" that gave us entry to about 5-6 different things. Rode up the ski jump - road the Gondola up Little Whiteface Mountain, etc., etc. Beautiful area located in the mountains. For another "day trip" we rode the ferry from New York to somewhere in Vermont (can't recall the city - there are 3 different pickup points) and then crossed back into New York from the Burlington, VT area. If you're headed into the Vermont & New Hampshire area, a couple of "can't miss" in Vermont - the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream factory (you can take a tour) & the Morris Maple Syrup Farm in Montpillier. Very interesting. In New Hampshire - ride the Cog Railway up Mount Washington. AMAZING! We picked up Route 2 just outside Bar Harbor, ME and followed it for a while - gorgeous, gorgeous country!

Real nice NY State Park at Cedar Point (between Clayton and Cape Vincent). Wellesley Island SP on Wellesley Island between the Canadian and US spans on I-81 is also very nice. Not familiar with private parks in the area. Both state parks are easy drive to tourist attractions like tour boats, antique boat museum, shops and restaurants.

Hi, I'm from Ottawa as well and one of our family favorite is Lake Placid KOA at white face mountain, it not on the lake, although few lakes/beaches are accessible for public in the area. This campground offer lots of amenities, full service or rustic, nice large pool, lots of trees and wildlife. It's paradise if you're into hiking or biking (mountain or street), lots to be explored in the area. We go every year in September and love it!
