Camping at Eighth Lake

This past weekend we headed north to one of our favorite places to go camping (or as I like to call it "campering")- Eighth Lake State Campground. We like this campground for many reasons:
  • easy access off Route 28 
  • large, private, treed sites
  • proximity to Inlet, NY where we can get freshly made gelato and browse an independent bookstore
  • lots of hiking opportunities nearby
On this trip we had dinner guests the first night (my husband's parents). An attempt at fishing was made, but the creek was too overgrown with plants.

The next morning we drove into Eagle Bay for greasy, sugary donuts before going for a hike around Moss Lake (2.5 miles).

After our hike we returned to McCauley Mountain for another ride on the chairlift since we enjoyed it so much the first time.

We both wish we could spend every weekend in the Adirondacks.
