My wife and I wanted to go camping up in St Lawrence county. There are some places for rock hunting up there that we wanted to check out. I went to Reserve America and started searching for campgrounds up in that area. There were a bunch, including a couple on islands that appear to only be reachable by boat. I was hoping to find a campsite with electric, but they were mostly booked. There was a KOA campground that had sites with electric, but they cost more than I wanted to spend. And the only thing I really need electric for was to maybe run my laptop. And I really don’t need it. It would have been nice.
So I started looking at simple tent sites which is what we will be camping in anyway. I pretty much narrowed it down to Eel Weir State Park or Jacques Cartier State Park. Jacques Cartier State Park seemed bigger with more stuff. They had a beach with swimming. All the sites near the water were booked. Eel Weir State Park had sites right on the water available. It supposedly also has excellent bass fishing. I haven’t fished much for years and thought it might be fun. I went ahead and booked a site on the water at Eel Weir. I also bought a fishing license. So hopefully I will get to do a little fishing while I am there.
Of course we will also do some rock hunting while we are there. There is supposed to be tourmaline and some other gemstones up in the area.
