Description


This is a 1977 R. G. Dustin pictorial map of the Saranac Lakes and the Fish Creek campsite region in the Adirondack Mountains in New York State. The map depicts the region from Altamont Township to North Elba township and from Santa Clara Township and Harrietstown Township to Harrietstown Township. Upper, Middle, and Lower Saranac Lake are all illustrated and labeled, along with numerous other ponds, brooks, lakes, and islands. Several campsites are labeled, including Rollins Pond Campsite and Fish Creek Campsite. The Saranac Inn near Upper Saranac Island is labeled, along with the town of Saranac Lake on the right side of the map. Numerous vignettes of tourists are included throughout the map, with fishermen, boaters, swimmers, and sunbathers sketched throughout. A hunter and a bear are illustrated in the upper right corner, each running in the opposite direction. The hunter even forgot his gun he wanted to get away from the bear so fast! Several deer are bounding through the forests, while campers are being towed and parked near the lakes. A small farm with a cow and a horse and a bright red barn is included in the lower left corner. A legend is included in the lower right corner, which explains all of the notations employed on the map.

This map was drawn, published, and copyrighted by R. G. Dustin in 1977.
