Campers staying Thursday night at the Battleground Campground at Lake George ARE OBLIGED, naturally, to keep their own campsite and all the campground clean and orderly, including the public bathrooms.

Pilgrims supply their own powdered coffee, hot chocolate, tea bags, instant hot breakfast cereal, as well as cups, plates, bowls, spoons et cetera at each meal.
The Company of St. René Goupîl’s volunteers help pilgrims throughout. The Company provides some first-aid for foot-sore, blistered pilgrims. The volunteers also transport pilgrims’ gear from camp to camp — and give rides to weary walkers, too. They also help to prepare bivouacs along the way. Pilgrims assist one another — especially the women & children — to pitch tents.
Friday and Saturday’s privately owned sites are equipped with running water, toilets, a few showers and wash basins, with remote electrical supply only.
Pilgrim families or/and seniors participating in the “Modified Pilgrimage” may park RVs at each private campsite for an additional fee paid directly to the campsite personnel or owners on location.
In every instance, parents or seniors contact the manager/owner directly, optimally in advance.
