During our last week at Roger's Camps, we toured the area, looking to see if there was any other camp on the lake that would enough weeks available next year for our extended stay.  We wanted something a bit bigger, and a bit more convenient than the one we'd been staying in.   We really did not mind that it was old, but it was very small, and if we wanted family to visit, it meant renting a separate cabin.  And there were several things that needed repair. 

We did find three possibilities.  One is a house on Booth Island. One bedroom, full kitchen, huge living room, two electric fireplaces, washer and dryer, gas grill, huge deck with awning overlooking the lake.  Only thing missing was the rental boat.   The second was a two bedroom cabin, at the Log Cabins.  This also had a full kitchen, wide screen TV, cable,  heat and air conditioning, huge screened in porch with picnic table, and a boat and motor we could rent at a more than reasonable price.  It was also right on the water.   The third place was a cabin at Camp Wildwood, two bedrooms, full kitchen, a huge room with a table that seated four, flat screen TV, large sofa and reclining chair, and day bed/sofa that opened to a double bed, full bath with larger shower.  Beautiful lawn area, with grill and picnic table, and boat and motor available to rent.   All of them within the same price range of Rogers, with the house even less!

The week after we were leaving Rogers was open at Camp Wildwood, so we decided to stay for another week. 

Heading down Mitchell Road in the town of Heuvelton, NY

Arrived at Camp Wildwood!  These are all hand carvings!

Our cabin for the week.  The yards are well manicured. 

Lots of little extras, that make the place inviting. 

The main living area inside. 

And a view from the other side.

Love the simple fish decor and pictures of  people who stayed and caught some nice fish.

We had a couple of feline visitors one day.  This one was pretty friendly and quickly made friends with Rich.

One of the views from the dock is "Bird Island"  Self explanatory!!!

This was one of the areas near the bridge where we spent a good deal of time fishing.  Found the crappies to be much bigger this week.  Didn't keep any, but well over half that we caught were keepers, with a good majority of them ranging from 9 3/4" to a 10 1/4".

I really liked this picture.  There is a large Amish population in this area, so daily you would see them on their carriages or fishing under the bridge. 

A view out on the main part of the lake..... not far from the place where I caught my BIG ONE!!!

On the main part of the lake again, and that last cottage on the end is the one that is available next year if we want to rent.  This is the Log Cabins. 

On our last day out fishing we were visited by the local Game Wardens!  Yes, they pulled alongside the boat, and we had a nice conversation about fishing, here and in Florida.............and yes they made sure we had our fishing licenses!!
Nice guys!!

They stopped us in this area along Booth Island.  This is where Rich caught his Bass ( a bit smaller than mine), and is also where the single home is that we could rent. 

We were getting ready to head back into camp, when Rich said ..." let's give it one more try".........and we stopped to fish for a few minutes.  I was fishing with a yellow and black jig.......cast..........and within 30 seconds this nice 16' Large Mouth Bass took the bait.  Nice little fighter!

So time to head back in..........A view of Camp Wildwood from the boat. It's a small camp with only four cabin rentals.  That little shed just behind the boat dock is the fish cleaning station. 

And of course........a view from the dock, with the sun going down. 

We were on the road, on our way back home by 7:30 the next morning.
