a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. A good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people. Whitewater paddling here in the Adirondack Mountains is a great experience.

You're sure to stumble upon some nice people from Wells here; a day at beautiful Moffit Beach close to Sacandaga River - Middle Branch is a delightful thing to do. So many cool things to do in the Adirondack Mountains, not sufficient time.
