- Pre-cook spaghetti, bring frozen meatballs and a jar of sauce for a quick, easy meal
- I bring an inflatable pool for my toddlers (this gives me book time)
- A hammock is not only relaxing but gives kids hours of fun
- My mom bought us a tree swing from the dollar store, the kids swung for hours!
- Oust sanitizer works, it’s the only sanitizer that fits on the joists in the out houses.
- Bring Bee Spray
- If you smoke bring something for your butts, it’s not fun for the non-smokers to pick them up.
- Lots of people? Lots of stuff? Bring an extra tent just for your stuff, it’s great for dressing in without the worry of getting your sleeping tent dirty.
- No soaps allowed on the islands unless they are environmentally friendly.
- No dogs allowed
- First night is so crazy, after unpacking, getting organized and setting up tents. Do something really easy. Our favorite first meal night is Philips Old House Frozen Crabcakes, cooks in minutes, put it on a bun with tartar sauce. Serve with white wine for an elegant meal in minutes.
- Bring a waist belt for your walks, keeps you hands free with the essentials always nearby.
- Please don’t bring in firewood from out of state, it may contain foreign pests, please buy locally on your way in.
- The Narrows are the northern most islands, ideal for those with fast boats.
- Glen Islands, ideally close to the Glen Island Store for icecream and buying anything you missed. Ideal if traveling from Bolton or on a speedboat.
- Long Island, ideal for larger groups, families and the closest to the southern basin and Lake George Village.
- Tired of the toilet paper falling down? Make a toilet paper holder, requires two nails and short rope to go between the nails. Voila, a week of clean toilet paper. The little things in life make it nice.
Have a great tip? Please send it along:
When you’re ready to take a break from camping, we recommend that you try Boathouse Restaurant, the Algonquin or the Stone Manor Restaurant at Blue Water Manor. All allow docking!
