"Caroga Times"

Bookmark this site now! You'll want to come back soon!

Due to the many pictures (over 1900) and music accompanying them our pages might load a little slower than normal, especially if you have a slow connection.  Most of the site was built with pictures BEFORE digital, so some pictures aren't that clear, but they will definitely be worth those few extra seconds of waiting. 

 Once you get into this site you'll want to just take your time, relax, and enjoy the sights, sounds, magic, and memories of summers at Caroga Lake.

 So, get a cup of coffee, sit down and turn up your sound. You'll love the  potpourri of our "Caroga Times." Be sure to check out our "Memories of Johnstown" section to!



Note! Each of the sections (below) -have many pages, so wherever you stop viewing the site you should save/bookmark the page your are on, that way you can return where you left off.
