App Review: Campground Owners of New York

App Review: Campground Owners of New York

The Lively Little Campers recently returned from a 12 day tour of upstate New York.  We spent five days in the Finger Lakes, three days in Niagara, and four days in Saugerties–and made great family memories in each location.  New York state has a wide variety of camping options and it proved to be far more beautiful, and exciting, than I had ever imagined.  We will be spending the next few weeks reviewing campgrounds and writing about our adventures–so please stay tuned for some great posts. But let’s begin at the... Read More

Campground Review: Camden Hills State Park, Maine

Campground Review: Camden Hills State Park, Maine

                                                   Camden, Maine I pulled up to the ranger station at Camden Hills State Park with the usual site-anxiety that grips me upon entering each new campground.  Would our site be spacious? Would there be room for the boys to play and scream?  Or would we be staring at a 50 foot RV’s sewage lines all week and yelling at our boys to get out of our neighbors dirty fire ring?  It may seem greedy for me to always expect a really big site–but when your kids wake up at 5 am each morning with...
