While they are here, the adults typically have places they visit while at camp. The local meat markets do well as steaks and bologna are purchased for dinners and snacks. Ice Cream and chocolates are often favorites. Even local silversmiths benefit as exquisite gifts are picked up for special someone. In the larger scheme of things, guests frequently need to stop for the biggies. Fuel and groceries top the list as far as big ticket items expenses. Hardware stores and garages also benefit when repairs are needed.
I partly joke, but I often quote “All Roads Lead to Oswegatchie”. Whether you enter the county on Route 3 or Route 12, from Barnes Corners way or down near Constableville. 95% of the Oswegatchie guests drive on average 35 miles through the county before arriving to Long Pond. Whether you are selling real estate or maple syrup, there are guests on their way to Oswegatchie year round that want to stop and buy a piece of Lewis County.
