Our Family has owned this property for over 60 years. Jim & Sue spend their summers here. Our son recently vacationed at some great glamping sites around the country and had a vision of creating one on our property.   We are excited to share the experience of what camping in this historic region of Adirondack's is all about. Black Hole & Dunkley Falls campsite is located on an 80-acre old Adirondack farm. The Mill Creek runs along with this property, which features access to the scenic Dunkley Falls & The Black Hole — a cavernous geological anomaly. This famous swimming spot is a perfect place to test your nerve with a backflip off its 20 ft cliffs or just take a leisurely swim in the naturally formed glacier pool. Like to fish? The Mill Creek is also stocked annually with over 3000 w/ brown & rainbow trout. All of this is just a short walk from our property. Onsite: Canvas Wall Tent (16ft X 14ft ) and Outhouse. In addition to the Canvas Wall Tent, we have a canvas bell tent for rent from larger groups. You can reserve this by adding it on as an extra when checking out with us here at Hipcamp.

We were so sad to leave our home away from home this morning. We booked a 2 night stay and although our tribe was small, this glamping site blew us away! Despite a drought, this weekend was the perfect getaway to spend outdoors in the nearby hiking trails and waterways. The beauty of the area exemplified how important it is to take care of our waterways and nature. Lake George is close by and Dunkley Falls provided the best rock scrambling experience. Revolution Rail and Ok Slip Falls was awesome to see as well. Although, we preplanned seeing these activities, we wished we had looked at the brochure sooner! Sue and Jim really set the bar high for glamping. The outdoor shower was a different experience and dining area truly made for a comfortable camping experience. We truly appreciated the shower capability and an extra water bag was provided without us asking for it! Everything, including the art on the brochure folders was tastefully done and spoke volumes of the thought put into this camping site. We cannot wait to come back again for another experience!

We absolutely loved Susan's site. We do a good bit of camping, and this was by far the most comfortable, well-equipped site we've ever stayed at. The location is great - very private, beautiful, and close to great features like the Black Hole for swimming (family loved the cliff jumping). The site itself is incredible. The tents are clean and homey, the beds comfortable, and there is lighting hung everywhere. We took full advantage of the hammock, the outdoor swing, and the screened in picnic area. What was really amazing was how well equipped the site was. You could literally pack clothes and food and go - no prep or camping gear packing needed (which is what I'll do next time). The kitchen area had everything - stoves, gas, pots, pans, utensils, grill, coffee pot, etc. There were solar lights lighting paths at night, and many lanterns (hanging inside the tent for interior light and portable ones to move around with) were provided. The firewood was dry and burned beautifully in the firepit. The outhouse was the cleanest I've seen, and the outdoor shower (with shampoo, conditioner, and body soap provided) was great. There was cold potable water for drinking, and warm water provided for dishwashing (along with basins, sponges, soap, etc.). Literally everything you could want was there. All you have to do is enjoy the fire and the stars. We will definitely be returning. Great site.

Unique, Fun & Special!
What a great place to celebrate our 40th Anniversary! 💕 It was special from the moment we arrived! Jim sent us up to the site where Sue was ready to greet us. She showed us around, and everything we might need was already there waiting for us! Sue and her family have really thought of everything! It was expected to be a chilly night so Sue brought us up a portable heater with extra tanks just in case we got too cold. She explained how to use it and all we had to do was pay for the tanks if we used it. We didn’t use it, but I was sure happy it was there just in case! 😉. Don’t miss out on a great glamping location! Truly special, you only have to show up and enjoy yourselves! And we did!

This is a really nice glamping location! The extra effort of the shower set up, cot arrangement, coal and firewood didn’t go unnoticed and made the stay even more enjoyable! If you are new to camping or just want to make things a little easier on yourself this is a great site.

Hidden Gem of the Adirondacks
Our stay at Black Hole/Dunkley Falls was awesome! The tent is very spacious and all of the “cozy cabin” touches make you feel right at home. The site comes with a fire pit, outdoor shower, outhouse, dining area, grill and more. Everything is extremely clean and orderly. Susan gave us a little tour of the place on our first day and we were amazing at all of the amenities! She even has a binder of nearby attractions if you want to just book the place and figure out your plans spontaneously. During the day, I recommend you head over to the Black Hole for some swimming or hike up Crane Mountain- some great views and challenging hike! End your day around the fire with some smores and looking at the stars at night- they are AMAZING. If you are willing to do a little driving, you aren’t far from Lake George area or an hour north to the Adirondacks high peaks. Definitely check out this hidden gem of the adirondacks area! We loved it!
