Were You Here 'Yesterday' When It Was Still... 

Morning In Caroga?

Then you'll love our... 

"Caroga Times" 

They began in the spring of 1952 at Camp Nestorest on Forrest Ave. It was an adventure on the lake, with the Adirondacks for a backyard.


 Things to do. Places to go. Fish to be caught. Ice to skate on. Snow to play on. Forests and streams to explore. An amusement park with a Penny Arcade that, to us, was the first Disney Land.... Especially the "penny" part. 

From "Nestorest" one could hear the music from the Merry-Go-Round. Smell the tantalizing aroma from the fresh popcorn that Frank Sherman sold for 10 cents a bag (fifteen  for peanuts).
On a quite nights,  sitting by the nightly "altar" of the Adirondack fire, the soft lapping of the lake could be heard as it kissed the beach goodnight. 

Later in the evening you could hear the music wafting over from the big bands that played in Sherman's dance hall.
In later years the music from Willie's juke box could be heard across the entire lake!

 While you waited for sleep to come - the joyful patter of the light rain hitting the roof reminded you that the fishing would be great in the morning. 

So, join us as we share our "Caroga Times"... For you were, somewhere along the way, there.
