Lake George in Upstate New York isn't necessarily a place many would consider for vacation when on a tight budget. But there are ways to enjoy a great camping weekend - just hitch a ride in your parents RV! That's what I did.
My better half and I spent the weekend in Lake George during the Elvis Festival in May of 2014, with my mom and step dad. The annual Elvis festival is meant to bring the music of the King to the Queen of America's Lakes. The festival's founders worked with Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. to create a world class event respectful to everything Elvis® stood for. Since the festival's inception, it has continued to grow, and is now the second-largest Elvis® Tribute Artist Competition in the world.
Although this campground offers no hookups for trailers or RV's and very compact sites, it is conveniently located within walking distance from town. The bathrooms were clean and early morning showers were luke warm, which was fine for me since I have no hair to wash.
