50 acres hosted by Sheila D.
3 lodging sites · 2 RV/tent sites
Creature comforts
Enjoy the comforts of home at some sites—including flush toilets, showers, and a kitchen.
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. Sheila and Bob bought it in the early 80s and have turned it into an amazing compound built for their family. 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.

Woodland Grove Camping
My only complaint was road noise . I personally was looking for a little more remoteness .Everything else was perfect .Very clean out houses . Sheila and Will were very helpful in setting up plans and providing us with a safe base camp for our gear. Location was close to areas we were looking for such as lake placid , and saranac lake .

Camping in the Adirondacks
Our stay at Bob and Sheila's Adirondack lean-to was truly delightful. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed by their warm hospitality. Bob and Sheila's passion for camping and the outdoors was evident in every aspect of our experience. They were caring hosts who went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and enjoyment. The location itself was a haven for nature enthusiasts, surrounded by the beauty of the Adirondack wilderness. We couldn't have asked for a better camping spot, and we look forward to returning in the future. Thank you, Bob and Sheila, for a wonderful adventure in the great outdoors!

Woodland Grove Camping
Great campground on a very cool property. Striking distance to lots of cool spots like Lake Clear, the Wild Center and Lake Placid. We stayed here for 2 nights with our 7 and 5yo kids during a week long road trip. Would definitely recommend!

Wonderful Site
Shelia and Bob were exceptional host. Their sites were pristine and even better than advertised. They were extremely communicative and lovely to work with. We will certainly stay with them again.

The Winter Campers
Sheila’s camp grounds offered us the perfect winter camping experience! Wrapped in winters white embrace amid the snow soaked trees, we enjoyed absolute silence and a captivating star gaze. With the warm welcome, great communication, activity suggestion and impromptu hospitality to less than prepared campers, we couldn’t have asked for time outside. Thanks, Sheila and Bob
