Campground Description

Campground Description

Contributor

Six miles south of Ticonderoga, New York, along the eastern shore of Lake George, Rogers Rock State Campground boasts 322 campsites and two group camping sites.

This very popular campground has many amenities including a picnic area with tables, fireplaces, picnic pavilion rentals, flush toilets, hot showers, trailer dump station, boat launch, mooring buoys, recycling center, boat pump-out station, sand beach, bathhouse, guarded swimming area, firewood for sale and pay telephones. The large beach and boat launch make it easy for guests to enjoy the scenery either lakeside or on the water.

Its proximity to Ticonderoga offers the opportunity to visit Fort Ticonderoga, which played key roles in the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War.

Access to the 46,000-acre Pharaoh Lake Wilderness is just 3.5 miles to the west where hikers can find the Berrymill Pond Trailhead.

Just south of the campground, guests can visit Hague for dinner and shopping.

The campground's website explains how the campground got its name:

The campground derives its name from an English Colonial fighter during the French and Indian War named Robert Rogers. Legend says that Major Rogers fled from his Indian pursuers to the top of what was called Mount Pelee, above Trout Brook, where a cliff slopes abruptly into the waters of Lake George hundreds of feet below. One story is that he slid down the precipice to safety, a truly super-human feat. Another is that he back tracked on reversed snow shoes so that his pursuers thought he made the fatal leap, and descending a nearby path, picked up his pack. The superstitious Indians who saw him mushing his way down the lake thought he must be a god, and feared to follow him. The hill is now known as Rogers Rock, and its steep face, Rogers Slide.
