Located close to the town of Lake George, NY, at the southern tip of the lake of the same name, Luzerne Campground partially encircles Fourth Lake. Luzerne Campground is a large campground, with over 170 campsites, but the sites are spread around several loops within the woodlands surrounding the lake. This makes the individual campsites quite secluded and private from your neighbors. Add the fact that motorboats are prohibited on Lake George, and you’ll understand why Luzerne Campground is known for peace and quiet. There’s also a separate equestrian campground, but you must bring a horse to be eligible for RV camping here.
Limited facilities are available at Luzerne Campground, such as flushing toilets and hot showers, but there are no electrical or water hookups. Each RV camping site is large, under the shade of trees, and is supplied with a picnic table and fire ring. Boat rental is available at the campground, there’s a swimming beach, and firewood can be bought from the camp host. Dogs are welcome at Luzerne Campground, but must be kept on a leash at all times and must have an up-to-date rabies vaccination.
Just a few miles to the east is the city of Glens Falls and the town of Hudson Falls, both lying along the banks of the Hudson River. Just over a mile to the south is the small town of Lake Luzerne. This is an area of rolling hills and woodlands, interspersed by many lakes, making it a beautiful area to explore when you book an RV in Warren County.
Exploring the 50-acre lake by boat is a great way to discover the shoreline and gain access to quieter areas. As no motorboats are allowed, Lake George is quiet and safe to explore by kayak or canoe.
As you would expect, fishing is popular at Lake George, and a wide range of fish species are available to catch. The cold deep water is home to lake trout, rainbow trout, and Atlantic salmon, while in the warmer and shallower water, you’ll find perch, bass, pike, and others. Ice fishing is permitted here during the winter months. Luzerne Campground is the ideal spot to park your rental RV next to the water’s edge and enjoy some peaceful, relaxing fishing.
The Luzerne Campground Trail takes you on a 2-mile loop hike around parts of the lake and campgrounds. It’s an easy trail, with only small climbs, so ideal for the whole family. During the winter, you can use the trail for snowshoeing.
A mile north of the campground is the Potash Mountain Trail. It is a little more difficult, with a constant gradient, so it is rated as moderate. During fall and winter, there is likely to be snow or ice on the route, so snowshoes or spikes are recommended. The effort is rewarded with spectacular views from the summit.
The town of Lake Luzerne is definitely worth a visit when camping with an RV at Luzerne Campground. It’s a very short drive to the town to stock up the rental RV with fuel and supplies, plus there are some interesting things to see and do.
This pretty town is located at the confluence of the Hudson River and the Sacandaga River, with Lake Luzerne at the heart of the town. The town’s local history museum is only open a few hours a week, but well worth visiting if you can. It is housed in a Victorian house that has been refurbished and contains period furniture. Close by is an original single-room schoolhouse that has also been restored and opened to visitors. The school was open between 1865 and 1937, but was never connected to the electrical supply! The school only opened during daylight hours!
When you are motorhome camping in the area around the end of January, don’t miss the Funky Ice Fest in Lake George. Along with fantastic ice sculptures by local artists, the event also has numerous ice bars, carved from blocks of ice, music, an ice-art gallery, and much more. Just remember your thermals!
A little further north, at the top end of Lake George, you’ll find the town of Ticonderoga, and each year on Memorial Day weekend, Fort Ticonderoga is brought back to life with re-enactments, displays, and events. The events are focussed on the life of soldiers in the Continental Army of 1777. There are displays of period weapons, the trades required to build the fort, and a pipe and drum band to entertain the troops.
