Battleground Campground in Lake George is perfectly situated for maximizing all that the area has to offer. It is located close to the site of the 1755 Battle of Lake George which took place during the French and Indian War. If you're a history buff, this is the place for you and, even if you're not, knowing what went on there before you go will only enrich your experience. History aside, though, the campground is located within easy walking distance to town if you go across the battlefield and down to the lake (instead of walking down Route 9 toward Fort William Henry, which is a much longer and less pleasant trip). You simply follow the central lane of the campground to the battlefield and you'll see the lake. The village will emerge on your left. Lake George village has plenty of great shops and restaurants and there's always something to do on the lake whether swimming, para-sailing, or boating. There are also large boat trips which take you out on the lake and I highly recommend any of these. Very relaxing and informative. The boats have refreshments for sail on board during the trip. A site at Lake George Battleground Campground costs around $22.00 a night and is well worth it. The showers and bathrooms - which are handicapped accessible - are always clean and well maintained. Across the street is a small convenience store/gas station with reasonable prices and excellent morning coffee and just next to that is a diner with some of the best breakfast dishes in the area. South of the campground are the shopping outlets, for those who like shopping, and pretty much everywhere there is some historical point of interest - such as Fort William Henry which is well worth touring. Alcohol and wood/charcoal fires are permitted in the campground as are pets (dogs must be kept on leash). I have stayed in and around Lake George many times over the years but, since I started staying at Battleground Campground, I haven't stayed anywhere else. An early morning walk across the battlefield with a cup of coffee and the breeze coming off the lake is a most pleasant experience. Highly recommended.
