We have 3 or 4 families planning a group vacation and would like to stay 4 days or more in the Adirondacks. How do you choose the best area to stay? Lake Placid, Lake George, Sarnac Lakes?? Please advice. We have kids ranging from 8 - 17. Some of us fish, some hike, but none are true "rough it" people. We saw info on Ausable Chasm. Where is the best bet to base ourself out of. I'm thinking we'd like easy lake, swimming, hiking access.
