Best Campground for tent camping?

I'm hoping to take a little trip to Lake George for a couple of nights this summer and am wondering what the best campground is for tent camping. It appears that if you want to have a spot with a lake view, you have to be on an island - is that correct? I'd love to do that at some point but island camping is out for this year. Any locations you might recommend with gorgeous spots - preferably on or near the water?

Thanks.

On Lake George, the only lake-front tent camping, on the mainland (that I am aware of) is a few sites at Roger's Rock State Park. You can reserve the sites at: http://www.reserveamerica.com

If you are not too attached to Lake George, you might consider the Eagle Point Campground in Schroon Lake. We have friends who have camped there for years, and have been right on the lake.

Hearthstone Campground, run by the state of NY is on the lake shore just north of Lake George Village. Not all the campsites have lake views, in fact some of the campsites are on the other side of 9N.
