Unirondack is a traditional summer sleepaway camp located on a 9-acre plot of land on a small peninsula on Beaver Lake in the Western Adirondack Park in Upstate New York about 30 miles east of Lowville, NY. We acknowledge that we are humble stewards of land previously occupied by the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, specifically the Mohawk and Oneida Nations. We are roughly 90 minutes north of Utica and 2.5 hours from Syracuse.

The camp is comprised of 10 cabin buildings of various ages, most original to the property from the 1920s. We have a large presentation/theater space, a small recording studio, a field for large group activities or sports, a gaga pit, a swingset and small basketball court, a large two story Adirondack-style lodge with fireplace, and a large heated dormitory-style building. Our maximum sleeping capacity is around 150 although our dining hall only seats 120 at a time. On the lake we have a boathouse and a beautiful artshop studio space. Our boathouse has 14 canoes, 10 kayaks, and 2 sunfish sailboats and we have a small beachfront with a dock and swimming area. Additionally we have a large campfire circle which can seat about 100 people.

Sweet:

Built in the 1920s, Sweet is a cabin with two stories, each having their own entrances and bathrooms. This rental is for the Upstairs. The Upper floor is three sleeping rooms with adjoining doors, that all open to a small common room ( a great spot to read or store gear) and a multi-stall bathroom. The bathroom has three toilets, and lots of storage cabinets and sinks.

The sleeping rooms all have multiple bunk beds, each one has one full size bunk with a twin up top and 3 twin over twin bunk beds. This cabin has hardwood floors, and looks out over the lake. Sweet is situated between the dining hall and the lodge.

A magical place in the adirondacks

This may be the most beautiful place on the planet, certainly in NYS. The sense of peace and being present in your natural surroundings was an incredible release from the tension and noise of NYC. We had use of the kayaks and canoes on a lake that seemed to go on forever. Often the only sound was the loons, and we were startled to see an eagle soar overhead.

The room itself was rustic and comfortable. All the common buildings were obviously designed to fit in the natural surroundings and several had wonderful views and comfortable nooks and crannies for sitting and reading a book or socializing.

The staff, especially the camp manager Elizabeth, made us feel more than welcome. We have rarely stayed someplace that we felt more at home.
