When we were staying at Golden Hill State Park, there was a really cool lighthouse. I paid the $1 fee for the tour and got to go all the way to the top.
We left the campground via Roosevelt Highway towards Rochester. Along the way we stopped at an Amish Fruit Stand and bought strawberries, tomatoes, cherries and yellow squash. Can hardly wait to try them!!!!
It’s very hard to find camping at New York cgs on weekends. So we opted to go to Rochester, NY and stay at the Elks. There were hookups and the price was right – $10 donation. It was very quiet and only one other rig came in – a fellow Jojobian on their way to the Escapade.
Heading out we inadvertently got on the toll road I90E. We were going to try and find a campground in Rome NY, but none were to be had. We stayed at the WalMart, which was very quiet, surprisingly.
Our next stop was a Limekiln State Campground, in Inlet, NY, as we started around the Adirondack Mountains. The price was right – $7.75 with Pass. It had rained the day before and this campground was very dark and dreary.
Continuing on the road through the Adirondack Mountains, we came to Lake Placid, the home of the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Games. We saw the speed skating oval, the ski jumping area, and one of the bobsled. The town was very touristy, but we did stop for a Starbucks!!!!!
That night we stayed at Medcalf Acres Riverfront Campground, which was a Passport America place. Very interesting place. It looked completely full, but none of the rigs were occupied. The owners let them leave them there during the season and then the owners come out on the weekends. It was a very quiet place, because there were only 4 campers there that night.
We continued on to Ticonderoga, NY to do our laundry. Very neat little town, with a nice laundromat. Plus next to the laundromat there was a great restaurant called Libby’s. Everything was homemade; made doing laundry a real pleasure!!! As I was sitting in Ticonderoga I recognized the name and went to the motorhome to look at a pencil and bingo, it was from here.
That day we wanted to get out of the heat and humidity so went into VT. What a beautiful state. And, their State Parks are great. We tried the first one tonight – Gifford Woods State Park in Killington, VT. Great entrance, nice and big campsites (no hookups) and it is on the Appalachian Trail. The cost wasn’t bad either – $20. We liked it so much, decided to stay another night.
