Memories of Chateaugay

The article “Touring the Chateaugays” [January/February 2013] brought back many fond memories of the sixteen years I spent working at Camp Chateaugay—the children’s camp mentioned in the article. The boathouse of the camp was shown in the view up the narrows from the boat launch.

I have paddled many times to Moffit Island—some trips in heavy morning fog. I watched many motorboat drivers new to the lake head towards the upper lake from the narrows only to find a long sandbar suddenly below them.
We would catch twelve-inch perch near the inlet and nice-size bass along the shoreline.
