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.
Every camper must observe the quiet time from 10:0pm til 07:00am. That means LIGHTS OUT and that no one beyond your site, in an adjacent site, may hear you make any noise after 10:00pm Thursday evening until 07:00 Friday morning.
Please spread the word.
Not everyone overnights Thursday at the same accommodations, but IF YOU ARE STAYING THURSDAY NIGHT at the Lake George BATTLEGROUND CAMPGROUND it is best to pre-book/to reserve your stay there.
