“It’s a good time to be in the campground business,” CEO of Campground Owners of New York Donald Bennett, Jr. said in a statement. Indeed!
In response to the incredible popularity of camping and outdoor recreation during the pandemic, campground owners have been making major improvements and adding new rental accommodations. See what’s been going on here in Lake George, and learn why you’ll want to book as soon as possible this year.
Lake George Escape
The 547-site park is completing the second year of a three-year improvement project to upgrade all campsites to 50 amp electrical service. There’s also a plan in the works to convert 77 tent sites to 61 RV sites to accommodate the rising demand at Lake George Escape.
Also, 14 acres of land developed by the previous park owners have been restored into wetlands to provide habitat for aquatic and waterfowl life, as well as additional points of entry for guests to access the Schroon River.
Lake George RV Park
This campground is renovating the shuffleboard and bocce ball courts and plans to install new playground equipment this year. In 2020, Lake George RV Park was touted by MSN as being the best RV park in all of New York State, partially because of their on-site pools and mini water park.
Owner David J. King told Campground Owners of New York (CONY) that 2021 could be the busiest season yet in the 55-year history of the park. Summer weekends are booking up quickly, although he still has some mid-week availability.
“The unprecedented demand (for campsites) will potentially push people into looking at alternative dates,” King said.
Lake George Riverview Campground & Resort
Lake George Riverview Campground & Resort is completing a three-year expansion that includes the addition of 75 campsites, many of which are terraced campsites with a view of the Schroon River. Many other campsites have also been rebuilt, and the park now has a total of 170 campsites.
No wonder campgrounds – and these Lake George area campgrounds specifically – book up early! Hurry and secure your spot for sunny skies by day and campfires at night in gorgeous Lake George.
