Winter camping advice

My friends and I are going ice fishing on Lake George next week and I am having a hard time finding anywhere we can camp/overnight park. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Make sure your propane tank is full. On many coaches some of the heat from the furnace blows into the basement and helps to keep your fresh water from freezing.

My Fresh water tank is actually inside the coach under the bed and I have heaters on the external tanks... my issue is finding a place to park or camp, I cant seem to find anywhere that is open. I'm sure I can park overnight at the Walmart in Ticonderoga, but a campground would be so much more fun.

K star i think you're speaking of Ft William Henry....that is an idea...there is also Ft Ticonderoga on the other end on the tip of Lake Champlain.... Rogers Rock is in Hague but the campground is closed until May 15 but perhaps we can stay by the launch I will have to look into that further.
