It was hot on Friday on the way in, rain most of the day Saturday starting 5 am (mad dash from hammock to tent) and some overnight into Sunday, none of the possible thunder and lighting though. Cooler Sunday, supposed to be mid 30s Sunday night. A nice paddle out. Anyway I didn't get to paddle all around the lake so I am still hoping to meet up for the after Columbus day trek. Site 21 was OK, 20 is nicer and more sheltered.
Yes first time there, Very nice lake and scenery. Unfortunately I got a later start than anticipated so I didn't stop to enjoy the view on the way out. I spent some time on the way back, both nice days. I forgot my tarp and stopped at a conveience store in Long Lake to but some plastic ones, then I stopped at Raquette River Outfitters to see if they had any good ones. I rented a nice Crazy Creek which fit the bill. The girl was very informative on Lows, the owners spend a lot of time there and published their own map and guide, they even describe each site. Unfortunately she didn't give this information until I returned the tarp . I bought the map and will use it the next time. Raquette River Outfitters have a location in Tupper Lake and a website if you are interested in the map.
