Robert Edward Scott, owner of Hunter Lake Campground, departed us on August 16, 2011 at home. He was 81.
Robert was born on June 8, 1930 to Edward and Florence Scott in Newark, NJ.
He graduated Morristown High School in 1948, and served in the Army during the Cold War in Germany from 1948 to 1952. Robert married his high school sweetheart, Ann Clemente Scott.

In 1977, he and his family moved to Parksville, NY, where they established Hunter Lake Campground, which he ran successfully for 30 years. Robert loved flying, fishing, skiing, baseball and hockey.
For all who knew and loved him, we hope you will recall his closing words, “Thanks for coming.”
