Caroga Lake NY 4 reviews

RV cleanliness

Outdoorsy owners are required to meet our high standards of safety and cleanliness, which includes cleaning their vehicles with antibacterial/antiviral cleaner and disinfectant according to CDC recommendations before and after each rental to help prevent the spread of germs between travelers.

Please send a message to the owner to learn more.


Please Note: Until camping season opens, our campers are safely in storage. Before and after each rental, we follow the cleaning procedures recommended by the Center for Disease Control, and available on our personal website, ....continued... Great for concerts, festivals, weddings, and special occasions (as well as camping - lol!) This sweet little 1963 Shasta compact is one of the most sought after vintage models. Recently refurbished and available (like a vintage paper dress-up doll) - in 4 different decor themes: hence, her name: Camper's Choice!" (Custom decor themes also available). Each theme includes a removable felt banner, matching curtains and pillows, and a few matching decor items. Of course, it can be left without anything but the standard decor theme, and you can decorate it yourself or not. Your call. SPECIAL DISCOUNT PACKAGES available through SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS: The two benches fold out to create a king-size bed. Two canvas hammocks hang over these beds, suitable for small children no more than 95 pounds. You will find a video about this on my website, Delivery is required. My campers (6 in total) are all available within 75-mile radius of Albany, NY (or Caroga Lake, in the southern Adirondacks. This spans much of the Catskills, Adirondacks, southern Vermont and western Massachusetts (Go, Berkshires!) OTHER VINTAGE CAMPERS AVAILABLE (Visit or my facebook page by the same name) or just search here, on Outdoorsy, using Caroga Lake, NY 12032 Campers can choose from these four decor themes at no extra cost - or just request NO DECOR theme, if you would like. FREE estimate on custom decor for your unique needs! 1. "CHOOSE HAPPY!" (with a Happy Camper motif, used throughout!) 2. "Smiles2Go!" (with a Smiley Face theme... who has morphed into Emoji-Hood!) 3. "DAY (of the dead) TRIP'N" (Way Cool!) 4. "THE LILY PAD"... (Toad-ally Terrific Toads, Frogs and all things pond (without the algae). In addition: We provide custom decor themes for weddings, birthdays, and other special occasions. Free consultation and estimate (contact us for further information). Details? No water usage or propane gas usage in the camper- I provide a Coleman outdoor stove, two burner, at no cost, plus a table/stand for washing dishes outside, should there not be facilities in the camp for washing dishes. Soap and washbin also provided. Included are two small propane tanks. Bring a couple extra - depending on your time and expected use of the Coleman. Downloadable list of supplies available in the camper can be found here: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ INSURANCE: Rest Assured: You are covered. Both by Outdoorsy ($75,000 Collision and Comprehensive) and also by Triad, my business insurance, which covers liability. Plus, my tow vehicle has commercial insurance coverage by Prudential. NYS laws have made doing business for small business owners difficult. Sadly, we both suffer. (Be glad we are not running this business out of Seattle, however! Worse there!) Call me if you have any questions: Catherine Light, owner: (518) 605-3668. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ NEW! Speaking of NYS Rules and Regulations: As of 2020, I will be required to purchase a special vendor's permit from NYS Dept. of Env. Conservation to deliver any of our area NYS campgrounds. The cost for this permit is prohibitive. I must pay $100 for the permit itself for my tow vehicle, as well as $2 per campsite located at any NYS Campground. 1. Caroga Lake State Campground, (NO DELIVERY COSTS!) 3043 State Highway 29A, Caroga Lake, NY 12078 2. Moffit Beach State Campground, on Sacandaga Lake 217 Page St, Lake Pleasant, NY 12108 (near Speculator) 3. Northampton Beach State Campground (On the western shore of Great Sacandaga Lake) 328 Houseman St, Mayfield, NY 12117 Delivery is available to other state parks, however, you must be willing to meet at a convenient location outside the park, where we would then transfer the camper to your own tow vehicle to then pull into (or bring out of) the park. Awkward, but the best we can do at this point. Call me for details before reserving. Please note: there is no electric or water at any of the state campgrounds, and my campers do not have an inventor or alternate source of power. Private campgrounds do offer these amenities and do not require a vendors permit. Delivery is always required. $1.00 per mile round trip from either Schenectady, NY 12304 or Caroga Lake, NY 12032. Whichever is closest. Tolls must also be reimbursed, where applicable. Did you know that I have 5 other vintage campers for rent? Find them here (search for campers located in Caroga Lake, NY) or see them on my website, You will find many additional resources there!
