This was our first camping experience in the Adirondacks and we booked the site because of its proximity to Old Forge. Luckily, it turned out to be a great choice. Each campsite was large and nestled in such a way that you weren't on top of your neighbors. Although we were disappointed that the individual campsites didn't extend all the way to the lake, we were to learn that this is not at all uncommon in the Adirondacks. The view of the lake through the trees was very pretty, and we could clamber down to the lakeside without much effort. The bathroom and bathing facilities were adequate, and there was a large beach at the end of the lake for swimming and boating (we rented a canoe for $25 per day). We were far enough from the highway not to be disturbed and near enough to Old Forge to venture out for a meal without much hassle.
