Most of my favorite tent sites are around Lake George NY (not the village). I love the island campsites which come with a boat dock, picnic table, outhouse. Some islands have 1 or 2 sites some have dozens.I usually camp on the Waltonians in Hague. Another favorite site is Jabes Pond in Hague. It is a mountain top pond with free back country sites. This is a good fishing pond(no live bait) and great for paddling.
Keep the list going!

Check out Little Pond State Park in the Catskills, off Rt 17 by Roscoe. They have sites around the back of the lake that are hike-in or boat-in only. Very rustic and have had many great times there.

I love the tent sites at Cobscook Bay State Park near Dennysville, ME. They won't let us camp in them even with a truck camper. They sit along the bay and around the coves giving great views of the dramatic tide changes. The RV sites aren't bad either, but only a few are on the water.

Cobscook Bay sounds real nice. I like to slum to the ocean once in a while and love the crazy tides. Thanks! Got to get to the Catskills one of these days.

Dang, three responses to this post and y'all already stole our suggestion! I am amazed! Cobscook Bay is a wonderful place to visit north-east Maine and Campobella Island in Canada. Our campsite was on a point and there was a walk-way to a small island at low tide where we picked blueberries. Every morning our 4 year old would get up and run outside to see "if the bridge was back".

Anybody out there? I know there are a few tent campers around here. Here's another. Putnam Pond, Ticonderoga NY. Nice quiet campground with sites suitable for RVs but no hookups. Some nice Short hike in and boat in tent sites and access to Pharoh Lake Wilderness area that has lots of lean tos, ponds, lakes and miles of hikes including a couple of small mountain peak trails.

Long was away but Mary Smith Tent Campground on Beautiful Lewiston Lake in Northern California's Trinity Alps is possibly the loveliest view anywhere. Great trout fishing & kayaking with tons of wildlife. All kinds of waterfowl including Egrets, Herons (Blue & Night), ducks, geese,otters, deer, bear,cougars you name it!

In Lyme CT, Rocky Ledge (or Rocky Neck) State Park. By far, close to ocean beach and large sites.

I may try it someday. I have all my tent gear, canoe, heck even the big ole blueYamaha. Don't want to float the thousands in toys down the Delaware though . Lake paddle in and out gear, using my old town guide 147 that can portage 900lbs of gear/kids.
