Long Pond Campsites - tables?

Hi folks - we'll be heading to Long Pond for a few day basecamp in the end of June - I've never camped there before. Google is showing me a few sites that had picnic tables, but the majority don't...

Thanks for the thoughtful and helpful reply - I've been meaning to get a tarp and poles and your reminder was the one I needed. We're actually going to pop the canoe on top of the car and drive down...

Totally hear you - and I appreciate the time and thought you put into your post. Montcalm suggested a basecamp on Long in the post before yours and it was the lightbulb moment I needed. I agree that...

Interesting! One of the downsides of the shorter loop in my mind was never getting north of Floodwood road and into the SRCA. We could even do ambitious day trips without having to carry the whole...

Should have clarified - you're correct, two families. The hike would probably be just some parents and maybe the older kids - a benefit of a bigger group is that some folks can stay back at the camp...

You all are trying to talk me out of it!

We'll be overnighting at Rollins the night before we set out because we're driving from downstate and want to start in the morning. Maybe...

Good to know! I know he made them a few years ago, but likely it's just combining GIS layers and not actually based on local knowledge. We're renting our canoes from St. Regis so I'll snag the latest...

Hey all -

I'm a semi-newbie canoe camper: My wife and I did the bog river/lows lake trip twice in 2012 and 2014 and loved it. THEN we decided to have some kids and canoe camping was suddenly out...
