The off water sites in the 84-123 loop are a mix of small sites backing onto marshy water and larger sites with decent privacy. Sites I would least recommend include sites 94, 95, and 97.
Ausable Point is quite popular with campers in the Plattsburg area as well as Montreal. All the watersites book up quickly 9 months in advance for the summer months so be sure to book well in advance! Loop 1 (sites 1-24) and Loop 2 (site 25-48) will completely book up. Only the watersites in Loop 3 (81-123) will book up well in advanced. The off watersites in Loop 3 and all sites in Loop 4 (49-80) are not so popular and will be easier to get.
