Fish Creek Pond Campground
Fish Creek Pond Campground is a State of New York facility. I stayed here six years ago when Gopher & I drove up to Burlington for a Lazy Daze rally. Carol was still teaching and flew to Burlington.
There are 355 campsites in the park. Almost all are on either Square Pond or Fish Creek Pond. There is wildlife everywhere. We watched a turtle dig a hole and lay eggs, saw hummingbirds, ducks, geese,loons and the usual chipmunks. The ducks and chipmunks, as expected, have learned campers are a great source of food. They have no fear of people. Except for the chipmunks, Gopher doesn't bother the animals at all. Bugs. This place does have it's share of biting bugs. Black flies during the day; mosquitoes at night. Lots of bug spray.
Our initial plan was to stay here tonight and Thursday but we liked it so much, Gopher & I walked to the office and extended our stay for Friday and Saturday night as well. This site, 143, was reserved for Friday/Saturday so we took 144. Another wonderful site.
Thursday: Grey & gloomy. Rained most of last night.
Friday & Saturday. Friday was a nice, sunny day. We took some walks around the campground. Saturday it rained, on and off, all day.
On Sunday we left for the St. Lawrence Seaway area. we would certainy come back to Fish Creek Pond.
