Mikeee and Joe Zecca are proud to present a preview to our August Jamboree. The August Jamboree promises to be an extravaganza. In addition to our regular events (Saturday potluck dinner, etc.), we are planning to have a sit-down dinner at the resort’s dining room on Thursday and to conduct a Murder Mystery on Friday. If you attended the 1880 Deadwood Saloon Murder Mystery in Lake George NY 2016, you know what a hoot that was! This time the action takes place in 1930 under the Circus Big Top! We will be converting the campground’s pavilion (which is HUGE) into a circus venue. Additionally, food will be provided as part of the event. We will be employing a greatly improved sound system so that everyone can follow the actors’ antics. Although we already have some volunteer actors, decorators, food personnel and support people (who signed up at the last Jamboree of 2019 at Newfound RV Park in New Hampshire), we will need many more!

Campsite Costs

  • $18 per night for a rig with one occupant
  • $36 per night for a rig with more than one occupant.
  • $16 per night for military or veterans.
    (only the individual; not the entire party
    – thus, one veteran and one spouse would cost $34)

Please note that our contract with the campground requires us to collect all the campsite costs.
So, please consider helping us out by bringing enough cash to cover the campground costs and the registration fees.

Our Sites

Our sites will be adjacent to and directly in front of the pavilion. There will be 50 rigs arranged in a double-deep arc, with the community campfire pit conveniently placed. The showers are nearby. The swimming pool is directly behind the pavilion. Once this area is full additional rigs can still be accommodated (the campground is very large), but these rigs would be somewhat further away from the pavilion.

Each camper would be connected to a dedicated electric circuit of at least 20 amps. Each will be connected to the water supply. There are no sewer connections at the individual sites, but (in addition to the campground dump station) the campground will pump out individual rigs at any time at no charge, upon request (with some advance notice). The pump-out truck will be at our sites on Sunday morning to accommodate everyone who wishes to be pumped out.


Wi-Fi is available in and around the office area.


Pets are welcome as long as they have a current rabies certificate.
