Join us for camping, swimming, boating and hiking, but the main attraction for some this weekend may be the nearby Six Flags Amusement Park! (The payment here only covers the cost of the campsites.) You can buy tickets online here. Save $13 when you buy your tickets online at least seven days before your visit, pay just $39.99. Print at home and go straight to the gate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is great local Lake George hiking in the area to the north and east of our campground.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mark will also be bringing watercraft to take us on a sunset cruise after dinner Saturday night! The campground is only a 5 minute drive from the town of Lake George.

To RSVP, please pay $30.00 via Paypal or $28.50 with a check made out to Campers' Group (contact Ken for the mailing address). For this trip, we are collecting a partial amount up front, and then the balance on site, once we know the total per person needed to cover the cost of the campsites, propane, firewood, and any other shared expenses. We also collect $1 per person per night for Campers' Group on most multi-day trips.

Start and end times above reflect only the hours we are allowed to occupy the campsites. You are welcome to arrive any time after the start time Friday or Saturday.

    Hi there guys. So sorry but I won't be able to come as my friend has moved back to Sydney and I am supposed to be working that weekend anyway. In really sorry, I was looking forward to it.

    • Denise

      Mackenzie. I would be able to give you a ride up to Lake George on Thursday, but I will not be returning to New York. I will be going to the Poconos directly from Lake George. Perhaps you can get a ride back with someone else.

    Are there people still trying to organize a ride? Maybe car pooling in a jeep rental is an idea. Who all is still looking for a way to get to the campsite?

    • Ken Q

      Jannett, where are you located? You could contact Sergio or Sue here, and see if you can coordinate something.

      July 11, 2013

    • Ken Q

      and Denise is driving up Thursday, but not coming back after the trip, so you would need to get a ride back with someone else.

      When you were looking online did you see the locations of places for renting a car? I can meet you in Williamsburg or we can meet in manhattan. Not sure what the best start point is.

    Hi Ken,
    Do you have any idea how much the total cost will be? My friend and I are trying to budget now.

    July 2, 2013

    • Charlotte M

      Okay great. I don't think we'll go to Six Flags. For food, is their cooking equipment at the site?

      July 3, 2013

    • Ken Q

      Some of us will have propane stoves to share.

      July 3, 2013

  • Denise

    Is everyone going to Six Flags and if so what day are you planning this event?

    July 2, 2013

    • Charlotte M

      Don't think we'll go to the theme park - I want to read my book and splash around!

      thank you for letting us know.. :)

    Hi everyone!!!
    I wanted to let the Great Adventure fans know that the seasons pass I have includes parking..lets share the wealth and rock Great Adventure.. this should help save on expenses. ;) I was thinking about going early when the gates open and either we can bring sandwiches for lunch and eat at the car and head back into the park or call it a day and go back to the campsite. Ridding roller-coasters does get exhausting What ever the group decides. It's just an idea, nothing is set in stone.

      I like the idea of going early and getting in when the gates open. Good plan. Jump on a rollercoaster before a killer line forms. Psych!

    Thank you so much Trudy. That's so helpful and greatly appreicated! I will figure something out about the ride. I am trying to pay through paypal but it wont let me. Will try again tomorrow! Thanks.

    • Trudy

      Good luck. I sent you my cell phone through email. :) bring you're best screaming voice... Lol

      June 16, 2013

  • Trudy

    Hi Charlotte, I have a tent and sleeping bag to help you with cost. I will already be in lake George on that Friday so I will not be able to help with a ride, sorry.bolease let me know what I can do to help. :)

    June 16, 2013

  • Ken Q

    Hi Charlotte. Yes, all of us will be driving or sharing rides. As the group grows we can ask each other about coordinating rides, although you and your girlfriend may need to rent a car to have enough room for the two of you and all your camping gear. It really depends on how much you pack, and who else ends up going. Tents, backpacks and maybe other gear can be rented at REI in Soho: http://www.rei.com/stores/soho.html

  • Charlotte M

    Hey guys. I'm from Australia and really want to come along to the camping trip on July 19 with a girl friend of mine also from Sydney. Does everyone usually drive? Just need to try and arrange transport for both of us and also tent hire - does anyone know of a good cheap camping gear rental spot? I live in williamsburg. Thanks

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
