Rogers Rock Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Facing Cook’s Bay near the north end of Lake George, Rogers Rock earned its name from Major Robert Rogers, who commanded a unit of rangers famous for their dangerous exploits during the French and Indian War. According to folk history, Rogers was pursued to the edge of the cliff by warriors from the Iroquois Confederation and managed to either slide to safety or trick them into thinking he had made a fatal leap from the edge. Sixteen restrooms plus a shower house at either end of this sprawling campground make this place better suited to families and individuals who haven’t done much camping and like to know that comfort and convenience is never very far. People looking for more of a primitive experience should book one of the thirteen sites on Temple Knoll, Flirtation, or Waltonian Island. In addition thirteen handicapped-accessible sites are available at Rogers Rock. Military history buffs might be interested in traveling 7 miles north to visit eighteenth-century Fort Ticonderoga, one of North America’s oldest historic sites."
