Summer Rendezvous is an informal gathering of NYSOGA members, their families and friends. It is held each summer in late July or early August at locations rotated around the state. This is a time for guides to camp together, share meals, swap stories, participate in different activities together and usually includes an environmental project of some type whether it's working on our adopted section of the Northville/ Placid trail or other local projects. It is a great way of connecting with fellow guides for some mid summer fun! NYSOGA also hosts a winter rendezvous in March which is more formal in nature!

Moose River Recreation Area
Friday July 28 - Sunday July 30

Come join us for Summer Rendezvous 2017 on July 28, 29, and in Moose River Recreation Area. Moose River Recreation Area is located in the west central part of Hamilton County and a great location to relax and enjoy a weekend in the woods with fellow NYSOGA members and their families. Activities planned include... our usual Board of Director's meeting Friday, Pot luck Saturday night dinner, an improvement project in the area with DEC, fishing and shooting contest, a campfire nightly, and lots of camaraderie.


HOW TO GET THERE: Entry and camping are free and by gates at two locations. To reach the western gate proceed to Inlet, continue north on Route 28 and turn right onto Limekiln Lake Road, follow the road about 2 miles to the entry gate.  Access to the eastern gate is via the 12 mile long Cedar River Road that is approximately 2 miles north of the hamlet of Indian Lake and a left turn off Route 30.  Whichever gate you enter make sure you sign in at the registration booth and check the note posted to find out where NYSOGA will be camping.  NOTE: Camping is primitive and you must bring everything you need with you. It is a long trip out to a store. Plan to bring enough water for your use as there is no reliable safe water source in the area.

ABOUT THE AREA: Moose River Recreation Area is a primitive camping location. There are approximately 150 sites spread throughout the area. Sites typically are a flat cleared area with picnic tables, fire rings, and pit privies. All sites are first come - first serve use. We are planning to camp together with close sites. Our choice of camping locations will be...
  • 1st choice: sites 42,43,44,50,51
  • 2nd choice: sites 72,73,74,75
  • Last choice: sites 88,89,90,91,93,94,96.

Due to the fact that sites are first come-first serve we will not know definitely where we will be able to get enough sites together until we get there and settled in. We will try to be in one of the noted locations. A sign giving you our camping location will be posted in the registration booth at two entry points into the area.

To find more information about Moose River Recreation Area go to... cnyhiking.com In the search box on the home page type in Moose River Plains. Moose River Plains Camping will come up. You could also do a google search for...DEC Moose River Recreation Area.


If you would like a location with improved facilities there is an option to camp at the DEC Limekiln Lake Public Campground close to the western gate into the area. This public campsite has reserved campsites, flush toilets, hot showers, and a bathing beach. You can then drive into Moose River Recreation Area and join us for the day activities. Do a google search for..... DEC Limekiln Lake Campground for more information.
