Right beside the Sacandaga River - did we get a great campsite...


View of the river from our dining room table.

Four kayakers came by this afternoon.


Hard to believe but this is our first campfire this spring.

We ate good tonight! But then we eat good every night.

(Ron Writing) We left Amsterdam, NY this morning and drove about 30 miles north on NY-30 up into the Adirondack Mountains. This is a very scenic route that runs along the west side of Great Sacandaga Lake and then follows the Sacandaga River north. There are several campgrounds in this very popular area. Being a holiday weekend we encountered a lot of traffic leaving the area this morning – all those folks that spent the weekend up here but had to get back home today to go to work tomorrow. We remember those days well!

We stopped at the campground just south of Wells, NY and checked in. Some prime campsites had just been vacated and we were able to get one of the best ones right beside the river. The campground and this entire area is operated as a state forest preserve. Camping fee with no hookups is $21.75.

We had a nice relaxing day. The weather was perfect so we went for a walk all around the campground area, did some reading, and later built a campfire. When we had a good hot bed of coals we cooked some vegetables and grilled our hamburgers.

The campground just about emptied-out and we feel like we have the place to ourselves. All we hear is the river rushing past our campsite.
