My wife and I have been camping in the Lake George area for many years, including a bunch of Americades. We always stay at Lake George Escape. It is actually a few miles north of town in Warrensburg. Nice campground with a bunch of different camp sites so I am sure you could find one that works for you. Once in a while on Fri or Sat night it can get a little noisy, but usually not to bad. The staff seems to jump on it after quiet hours. Never had a problem sleeping.

Hope that helps

During Americade week it may be hit or miss for quiet camping, I will agree that the Lake George Escape is pretty nice. It was quiet the Americade week that we stayed. My only complaint is that there was no Wifi other than at the camp office. There are many state parks and most of them are very nice and quiet, the closest one is the Battleground but that is right in the heart of all the Americade activity and is always bustling. Hearthstone is very close and looks very nice. You'd have to check out what the amenities are that are available.

Harry -

Not knowing your financial situation or anything, I'd suggest you might want to consider buying a small camping generator which could be used intermittently for your purposes for the week, and maybe you'd even share a few watts with a neighboring camper with similar needs. Here's a small unit that would run your coffee pot in the morning and recharge your cell phone/laptop batteries later in the day, and maybe power a lamp or rechargeable lantern for the dark hours. It would only need to run an hour a day or less:

Here's one for <$200:

There's even one for $110 with free shipping! Bottom of the web page:
:arrow: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J261PGQ/ref=psdc_348967011_t1_B00FZYT2PU

You could have it shipped to you at your campground, and after use it could likely be sold for darned-near what you paid for it, that is, IF you have no room to take it home with you. You might even think about whether the campground would take it off your hands and rent it to other campers during the summer. There's all kinds of possibilities...

If your are looking for a nice campground. Try Moose Hillock in Fort Ann:

Clean, spacious and family owned. I've camped at their other resort in NH for over twenty years. Great folks, great campgrounds.

Enjoy !

Lake George escape is nice and just far enough away. They have full hookup down to very basic sites and price accordingly. On the other side of the Schroon river is Warrensburg Travel Park. Another nice place with everything you need and a little cheaper. I always stayed at Warrensburg Travel Park It's privately owned. LG escape is corporate owned and has changed hands a few times. It's a matter of personal taste - read some reviews.

I have stayed at Mt. Kenyon campground in the past, which used to be very close to where the demo vendor area used to be set up on Route 9N. Mt. Kenyon was clean and quiet, no problems.
