Fish in the Adirondacks – Strange Wilderness

A lot of people go camping, but most of us have a usual spot that we have carefully chosen over the course of years. One thing I have always heard is variety is the spice of life.  Here are a few things to look for when setting up camp in a new location.


Alan Fish,

The first thing you need to look for is a no camping sign, my usual  idea is you can camp as long as you follow the guidelines for a site keeping both your fire and tent a safe distance from the trial. If it’s a “No Camping Site” and you decide to camp anyway, you’re doing so at your own risk.  The fines can very if you get caught so if you decide to break the rules make sure you have at least 50 bucks to cover the fine if and when you get caught. 


Alan Fish,

Make sure the new site you have chosen is a safe one.  Look for poisonous plants, ie. Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, and Poison Sumac as seen below.

 If you see one of these plants that’s cool just mark it, but if you spot a thicket of these blister forming wonder plants get the heck out of there.

Before the internet it was kind of touch and go situation about knowing your wild life in the specific region you were visiting. Now you can get a full break down of what will be there and what has been there. Whether or not you’re in thick bear country, or you’re going to get bitten by a crap ton of wild raccoons you need to be aware. You are going to need to know what measures if any will keep the critters out of your tent and deep in the woods.
