TearUp the ADK 2017 - June 15-18, 2017

It's official fellow campers! Plans for the Spring TearUp 2017 are well under way. This will be our 13th consecutive year of this popular event! As always the TearUp is held at Fish Creek Pond Campground in upstate New York, just north of Tupper Lake. Fish Creek is the ultimate in lakeside camping experience with abundant water ways accessible right from your site! A paddlers dream indeed.

Dates are Thursday June 15 thru Sunday June 18th, 2017, although many campers add days before and/or after the offical dates.

Please note that the TearUp was a teardrop inspired event, but by no means do you need to own, or be in the process of buying/building a teardrop to participate! Although about 1/2 of campers will bring along a teardrop, many are in other smaller trailers like Scottys, T@Bs, Shastas, Metendorfs, homebuilts, travel trailers, even a few fifth wheels!

If you love to camp lakeside, love the Adirondacks, and love to meet other laided back easy living campers, then this is the event for you!

No need to join a 'club', there are no dues, no special handshakes and no strict schedules. Just come out and enjoy a great time and make some new friends!

If you have them, be sure to bring your bikes and/or canoe/kayaks!

The Spring TearUp 2017 website is available at

Campers can sign up on the Campers Forum which will allow you to be able to add yourself, and your details (campsite and dates) to the participants list.

For convenience of campers on Facebook, there is also a Facebook group for the TearUp along with an events page.

Visit the TearUp site at to register/login and visit the Discussion thread.

The FB event pages is available at

Check out the TearUp the ADK TV Channel at


Sites designated for the TearUp are sites 200-270. We will expand the site range as necessary, but best to pick a site as close to the middle as possible to reduce your distance to some of the activities. Campsite reservations can be made on Reserve America at http://newyorkstateparks.reserveamerica ... parkId=574

You can check out lots of photos of each individual campsite at ... Fish+Creek

Such a huge group!! I purchased my teardrop just a few weeks ago. I'm not a novice camper but have always been the "assistant". I will likely be attending this event alone for my maiden camping voyage (yay but OMG). So... would it be cool to ask "neighbors" to help me with the tarp and possibly backing in the camper?? Also, could someone please give me some recommendations
for site #s that are still available that are flat? Thanks a meeelion- I kinae wait!!

No problem asking for help in this group. Most every site in the area we are using is flat. There are some great pictures of every site, from various angles, along with a description on the campadk site. we are on site 244. Not sure which camper we will take.
