FULTON, NY – North Bay Campground provides a seasonal camping destination on Lake Neatahwanta in the city of Fulton.
The North Bay Campground, located at 925 Phillips St., accommodates campers and tents with 42 daily sites and 36 seasonal sites of which 31 have electric hookups.
The season begins at North Bay in mid-May and expires on the first of October of each year.
The Fulton Common Council recently approved site rate changes at the campground to begin for the 2017 season.
Fulton Mayor Ronald Woodward Sr. said the increases were brought up and discussed among the council at a committee meeting which sparked the decision to further analyze the rates.
Ultimately, the council unanimously passed the rate changes as follows:
Daily electric site rate has increased from $21 to $23
Daily non-electric site rate has increased from $18 to $20
Seasonal site rate has increased from $675 to $850
RV and camping trailer winter storage fee has increased from $75 to $125
Additionally, the council will implement new rates beginning in the 2017 season as well:
New weekly electric site rate based on seven days: $150
New weekly non-electric site rate based on seven days: $130
New monthly electric site rate: $500
New monthly non-electric site rate: $450
New off-season rate (10/1/2017 – 10/14/2017) electric site: $200 per week
New off-season rate (10/1/2017 – 10/14/2017) non-electric site: $150 per week
Common Council president and second ward councilor, David Ritchie believes the prices are fair in comparison to nearby campgrounds.
“We had the lowest rates all around for one thing, and hopefully by generating some more income we can make some improvements there,” he said.
Mayor Woodward agreed, adding “I think it was time. When you look at comparing rates, it shows. If we want to be able to keep it up like we need to, then the council needed to do this.”
