Our Beginning at Lake George Escape

Wet, muddy, rain, rain, and more rain. We are told it is the wettest Spring but they are sure it will soon end and we are hopeful they are right.  

We worked our 1st few days doing our paperwork and testing, we were ahead of schedule so we ended up taking the rest of the week off to get our personal stuff done. We found our perfect site and moved over there, we did laundry in town since the one at the campground was not open yet, we cleaned and totally unpacked. We checked out Ollie’s, the deeply discounted store in the area. AND, we began having days with blue skies and only a touch of fog in the morning, something we hadn’t seen at all before now. 

Through opening day many sites of the 574 sites were unusable due to being under water but the flood waters receded inches per day, and they are all open for Memorial Day weekend.


Until opening, we were on 8am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday and once opening we have requested any two days off but the weekends which they were happy to oblige.


We have Tuesday and Wednesday’s off and have plans to get away every weekend. Jerry is working Golf Carts and in the store and I am at the front desk. It’s been slow and boring for me, I am more used to much busier times, so I am really looking forward to this holiday weekend where we are just about sold out. We have probably half seasonals that are already checked in but this weekend we have the other half of weekend checkins. I can see the store being busy, not so much the front desk, at least my idea of busy.


We drove up a few hours to take care of a few items on our list and we took many roads less traveled…

We spent the night in Vermont so we may put it on our map. Even though we had passed into Vermont before, our criteria is to spend the night in the state before we add it to our map and we did just that, we stayed at Best Western Plus in Waterbury – Stowe, see our separate review for the hotel information.


The other item on our Life List was to visit Ben & Jerry’s in Stowe, Vermont. We chose not to do the guided tour, instead we did our own tour, bought our souvenirs, and had an ice cream before checking into our hotel for an afternoon soak in the hot tub and pool…just what the doctor ordered.


We made an unexpected stop at Crown Point Historical Site where we took photos of the bridge we went across.

On our return trip we crossed over Lake Champlain on the ferry back into New York for a different view.
