additional instructions for CAMPERS staying at Lake George Battleground Campground Thursday night

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.

The pilgrimage does not begin until Friday morning. Every camper who overnights at the Battleground Campground is responsible to pay the fee to the campground authorities, and to comport himself peaceably and with every respect to the law, to good order, to public authorities and all others who visit the place.
