Set on the edge of gorgeous Lake George, Rogers Rock is a popular spot for family-style camping. Tucked within untouched woods alongside a sandy beach and safe swimming area, it’s the perfect spot for campers to enjoy a little outdoor R&R.
Named after Roger’s Rock which rises 700 feet above the shore of Lake George in the Adirondack Park, Rogers Rock Campground is an RV holidaymaker’s paradise. A choice of basic RV-friendly campsites tucked beneath the trees or on the water’s edge offers all of the conveniences you need for a relaxing weekend outdoors.
Opportunities for outdoor recreation abound; campers can enjoy swimming in the safe swimming area – complete with lifeguards – or tubing, jet skiing, kayaking, and water skiing across the scenic waters of the 32-mile-long Lake George. Families can challenge each other to a game of volleyball, enjoy lazy picnics on the beach or the designated picnic areas, or cycle and hike along the park’s state-marked trails. When winter comes around, these same trails are groomed and turned into spectacular paths for cross-country skiing when the campground is closed.
