Awesome First Trip

IMG_2013It’s hard to believe that our first trip of the season is already a memory!

We loved Hartwick Highlands Campground. It was super quiet, as our time there was only 3 days after their opening day. We only saw five other rigs in our section the whole time we were there. There was another wooded area with a few rigs parked in it, but we only know that because we walked that way the first day. It wasn’t visible at all from where we were.

IMG_2129We had a wonderful pull through site – it was so easy to get into. The wireless internet was great, and so was the water pressure and electric. Actually the water pressure seemed so good that Harry was glad we had a pressure regulator.




Our site was very close to the bath house, and it was also an easy walk to the office and pool. (The pool wasn’t open yet for the season.)






For the most part, the weather was good. We had enough sun to get to the places we really wanted to go.





The major rain was over by the time we were ready to pack up.We were lucky to have only some light showers on our trip home.


The only part of our entire trip that did not go smoothly was at the end, when it came time to get back into our driveway. We have not perfected this process, and whether it is “pretty” or not seems to be hit or miss. Well, this time was a miss, and getting back into position was a little stressful. The good news is – we’re in the driveway! And hopefully we only have six more times having to go through that process. Neither of us will miss it!

Seventeen days until our trip to Lake George! Smile


  1. Such a nice quiet campground. Glad you guys had a nice time and everything there went well. Won't be long and you'll be old pros at it!

  2. soon it will be 'old hat' backing into the driveway!!!..and by then the house will be sold and you won't have to worry about it anymore!

  3. Glad you had a good trip even if you did get a little rain. Looks like you had the place all to yourselves.

  4. You will surly have a great time up in Lake George. We will be in that area again in October visiting our friends on Lake Champlain.

    That driveway parking will soon be a distant memory.
