Historic Interest: The land on which the campground is situated was purchased in 1936. The construction was started by the Federal Civilian Conservation Corps, and completed by the state. The campground was opened in 1947.

The campground derives its name from an English Colonial fighter during the French and Indian War named Robert Rogers. Legend says that Major Rogers fled from his Indian pursuers to the top of what was called Mt. Pelee, above Trout Brook, where a cliff slopes abruptly into the waters of Lake George hundreds of feet below. One story is that he slid down the precipice to safety, a truly super-human feat. Another is that he back tracked on reversed snow shoes so that his pursuers thought he made the fatal leap, and descending a nearby path, picked up his pack. The superstitious Indians, who saw him mushing his way down the lake thought he must be a god, and feared to follow him. The hill is now known as Rogers Rock, and its steep face, Rogers Slide.
