When I planned our two week fall adventure to the Adirondacks I left the return portion of our travels open. Looking back I’m sure why I did this (I’m normally a planner), so one rainy afternoon at North Pole Resorts Campground we spent researching our trip home. On our trip out we spent a few days at Allegany State Park to break up the drive a bit, but on the way home it was all business. For this return trip home it was mostly about miles per day so with a little help from Google maps I came across Delta Lake State Park which was located on the other side of the Adirondacks Mountains from where we were.
Checking the Reserve America website, I found what looked like a lovely little site that back up to the lake (site #22) and booked it for the first night of our return trip home.
We arrived at the campground at dusk – the check in process was super quick. It was a Tuesday night so the campground wasn’t crowded. We made our way to site #22 and realized that while it was large site that had a lake view, the site was not even close to being level. I should also mention that there had been some rain recently so I’m not sure if this added to the level situation. Poor Jim tried for over 30 minutes to try and get the RV to be even close to being level but no luck. We ended up driving back to the check in station to see if we could find another spot. The nice host gave us a map and circled all the available sites.
So we spent the next 45 minutes driving around the campground – by this time it was dark out trying to find a site that A) we would fit in and B) that looked somewhat level. It was not a good scene.
We FINALLY ended up at site #27. The site itself was HUGE, however, the recent rains had turned part of it in to a mud pit. But at this point we didn’t care. We spent a few hours unwinding, counting down the hours until we could make our way to the next stop. At night this campground is a little spooky. Jim saw albino skunk (glad I didn’t come across that walking the dogs).
Nothing against Delta Lake State Park (we were only there a few hours) it may be a really nice place when it’s dry and perhaps during the day. 🙂
