Overlook Lean-To, Treehouse, primitive campsites, and so much more! This is glamping at its finest. Our property was originally used as a seasonal hunting/fishing camp in the 1920's.

They blinked their eyes and their children are gone, so this beautiful 50 acre diverse property and its private trail system are meant to be shared. Nestled in a mature, private pine forest, this well cared for property boasts abundant wildlife and a network of walking, skiing and mountain biking trails which take you past wetlands, cliffs and a variety of forest types. They have all kinds of lodging options from a beautiful vacation cabin they rent, to an Adk lean-to, to a Treehouse, and primitive campsites. You'll find a little bit for everyone at Adirondack Adventure Base.

Forest & Farm Retreats at Wildwood Hills

3 sites · Tents100 acres · Colton, NY
Here you will be on over 100 acres of private land with hiking trails which meander through beautiful forests full of wildlife, ferns and rare flowers. Natural sights our wonderful land here offers include tumbling streams, sheer rock ledges, beaver ponds with wild ducks, and in the farther back “bear country” you might be lucky enough to get a peek of the resident flying squirrels! You can hike the hills and rocky ridges of the Cobbles and see the Adirondack foothills, a brilliant sunset or sunrise for the earlybirds. You can take our hiking trails to 1000s acres Public Land that borders our property and follow the trails there to Stone Valley and the Raquette River in Colton. This makes for miles of trails! The Raquette River Blue Corridor is known for hiking trails that follow the river and white-water kayaking at Stone Valley. We work a small organic farm at the front of our land where we grow vegetables and herbs, raise pigs and lots of birds. You can view the field of our young orchard and vineyard with its wildflowers and butterflies as you park and head back into the woods. Many times our twin horses will be pastured in this field as well. Stop by the farmstand for our current seasonal offerings and to check out its gorgeous timber-frame construction lovingly hand-crafted by Derrick from timbers sawn and cut from our forests and pegged together with antique carved oak pegs. If you are interested in learning more on a tour of our sawmill, gardens, animals, and other farm operations, we encourage you to contact us to schedule one during your stay. We offer the services of our canoes for 1-4 people, message us if you would like us to paddle with you out on the nearby river or some very special bog ponds. Derrick has led offroad bike rides on little known trails in the area and welcomes inquiries from any dual-sport/dirtbike riders, singly or groups. We love to teach folks a little of what we have learned on the farm, in the woods and in our studies, but first we need to arrange for the free time, so let us know if interested in hearing about building portable pig huts with living roofs, timber framing the old way, forestry and woodcraft, our menagerie, and other efforts to make the dream of sustainable living a reality. Colton, NY has townwide treatments for Blackflies. It is a natural biocontrol method that uses another organism (BTi) to kill only Blackfly larvae in waterways. It really works! We only ever get a few (literally) Blackflies between routine treatments if it is a bad season. During your stay here you will not have the usual clouds of Blackflies hovering around your head! But you will still see amazing numbers of dragonflies! At WildWood Hills Farm and Retreats, we are diversity inclusive and strive to ensure a safe and pleasant environment for all. We respect all our guests and expect them to respect each other, us and the Land in kind. Go in Nature! ~ E & D

Sandy M.’s Land

3 sites · Lodging80 acres · Potsdam, NY
A Little HistoryThe original "A FRAME" camp was built by Randy Mearkley grandson of the depression era farm owners Leon & Lena. Randy and a few friends built the camp on a couple of fall weekends in the late 60’s for $2,000 and a keg of beer. After a few years of enjoyment in the tranquil setting by the river Randy sold the property. Eventual new owners were a retired couple from Long Island...Ed and Alva Jones. Ed and Alva visited every summer for more than two decades and made significant improvements to the property while still keeping it very rustic with gas lamps and no plumbing. Ed and Alva became great friends of ours over the many years. In 2018 Sandy Maine purchased the property and 12 acres from Alva after Ed passed away and fully updated the cabin.  The property is surrounded by Sandy and husband Lou’s 68 acre parcel of woods, river frontage, fields, farm house and barn. The original farm house dwelling on the front of the property was built in the 1860’s by Otis Cudworth who left for the civil war after the house was completed. Sadly he died as a POW in Virginia and never returned to enjoy his country life on the edge of the wilderness. Your hosts:Sandy Maine began her career as an Adirondack Wilderness guide in the 1990’s and worked for private individuals as well as SUNY Potsdam Wilderness Workshop. She also developed and ran the wilderness Outdoor Recreation with Education (ORWE) program for youth in Massena in the 80’s. As a compliment to her guide services she developed a body care manufacturing business and has since become a prominent influence not only in soapmaking as a craft, but also in inspiring those who shared her passion to turn their craft into thriving entrepreneurial ventures. Sandy is currently the founder and owner of Adirondack Fragrance & Flavor Farm - where innovative  “farm-to-body care” products are happening in her boutique factory just down the road!!

Farm camping near Long Lake guide

Overview

At the heart of the Adirondacks, Long Lake has an outdoor adventure to suit all tastes, whether you prefer forest walks, water sports, or backcountry mountain hikes. There are myriad ways to get on the water—BYOB (bring your own boat) or join a dinner cruise or seaplane flight, paddle the lakes and rivers in a kayak, or zip along the shore on a jet-ski. Miles of Adirondack trails provide opportunities for hiking, as well as snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in winter. State campgrounds and private campsites dot the shores of the 14-mile lake, or go backcountry camping around neighboring Raquette Lake.

Where to go

Western Foothills

West of Long Lake, a string of lakes run through the heart of the Western Foothills, hemmed in by lowland forests and wilderness areas. There are options for RV campers around Old Forge and Inlet, or you can seek out remote backcountry campsites throughout the Moose River Plains. To the south, hikers exploring the West Canada Lakes Wilderness Area can camp in tents or shelters, while nearby Indian Lake has island campsites open throughout summer. 

High Peaks

Hiking nirvana lies east of Long Lake. This mountainous region is home to the 46 Adirondack ‘High Peaks’, the tallest of which—Mt Marcy and Algonquin Peak—reach over 5,000 feet. Backcountry hiking and camping in the High Peaks Wilderness Area is a thrill, but come prepared, as trails are rugged and there are no developed campsites. 

North-Western Lakes

North of the High Peaks, Saranac Lake is a bustling hub for campers, where you can enjoy water sports in summer, woodland walks in fall, and snowmobiling in winter. Reserve early if you want to camp on the lake’s islands—they can book up months in advance. Further north, the Saint Regis Canoe Area is a forest-fringed wilderness where you can paddle through the wetlands and camp out at primitive sites reachable only by water.  

When to go

May through August is the busiest season at Long Lake, but the lakeside town is open for business year-round. Come in summer to swim and boat, in fall to admire the rainbow of foliage along the forest trails, or in winter to hit the ski slopes. Many campgrounds in the Adirondacks are open only from April through September, but RV camping and backcountry camping is possible year-round. 

Know before you go

  • Long Lake has grocery stores, restaurants, and shops selling camping and fishing supplies. 
  • Tick season runs from April through September in the Long Lake region, so cover up when hiking and check for ticks after outdoor activities.
  • There is no fee to enter Adirondack Park, but state campgrounds charge a fee, and many require reservations. A New York State Fishing License is required for fishing.
  • Backcountry camping is allowed on state forest land through Adirondack Park, but camping is not allowed within 150 feet of any road, trail, or body of water unless otherwise marked.
