Come to VT.  Lots of places on the National Forest that allow camping and are close to good stream and pond fishing.  Check out the Moosalamoo area.  www.moosalamoo.org

We just signed up for two nights at a NYS camping area up to the 1000 islands yesterday, it cost $20.50 per night.  Do all New York State camping areas charge the same amount?  We used to camp out at Stony Pond years ago, but that's a state camp site now.  It wouldn't be worth $20.50 per night to camp there, but it's a nice place to camp.

I believe all State parks charge the same amount.

Dang Arch, I'm impressed. You turned this part of the forum into a hoppin spot.
P.S. If you come to WI there are plenty of free camping oportunities. A little rough, but free

There is lots of free and pay camping sites on kodiak and i usually just pay 100 buck for a year pass. I don't mind the charging because a lot of that money goes towards improving the outdoors and outdoor conservation.
I've never been to heaven, but i have fished  in  Alaska.

$20 a night for a primitive tent site. It's a great place to go. They also have cabins. I'm not sure of the price on those, but I could easily find out if you'd like, Wigglr.
Does Mrs. Wigglr like to camp?
As you know I'm kind of partial, it's in my backyard! Letchworth is part of the reason I shelled out the money for an Empire Passport.
It allows you access to all State parks and launches.
Their campsites open this weekend (Sat.) and I will be camping there soon so I can roll out of the tent and go after the turkeys that have frustrated me so far. Unfortunately the only place in the park you're allowed to fish is the pond. Alleghany would be better for that, but for scenery and hiking I don't think you can beat Letchworth in WNY.

yeah allegany is great its 4 times the size of letchworth but with that you get alot of people and tent areas get pretty crowded cabins are great if you got 4 people to go in on one its about $210 for a week divided between 4 people is great and all the creeks and 3 lakes in the park but devil-man is right its hard to beat the scenery in letchworth

When do you want to camp at Letchworth, Wigglr?
I know the perfect spot, it'll cost us $10 a piece per night.
We can bring the women, do some hiking, and hit the pond a couple times.
Just don't be surprised if I disappear at 4:30 in the morning... ;D

The farking birds are making me crazier than I already am.

What does an Empire Passport go for?  Do you pay every year?

Thanks,
