Adirondack Waterfall Oasis

1 site · RV, Tent24 acres · Port Leyden, NY
With cobblestone mill ruins, a 200 year old cemetery at the property entrance and a large dam at the top of some of New York's most beautiful waterfalls, this is the former site of one of the Georgia Pacific's many logging mills dating back to the early 1800's and a part of Adirondack history. Surrounded by bedrock, huge boulders, massive pine trees and miles and miles of trails, the Fowlerville Falls offer days of exploration and/or relaxation. There is a large swimming hole at the top of the falls, just off of the South-facing bedrock bank, where you can swim or lay in the sun. The falls, themselves, are almost 500 ft. across (at the widest point) and approximately 150 ft. in length (from top to bottom), ascending at approximately a 40-45 degree angle, making them navigable by foot. In the drier months (and, of course, depending on rain fall), most of the falls are dry, with only 50 - 100 ft. of water flow, making them navigable by foot. There are many little pools and flowing water across the bedrock to explore, along with the rest of the river, the surrounding woods and adjacent miles and miles of atv/hiking trails. If you are kayaker, there river above the falls is calm and fairly shallow, ranging from .5 - several feet in depth. And if you are white water enthusiast, Fowlerville Falls (and the Moose River) is a nationally rated and renowned spot, boasting a class III-IV under normal release conditions, and a dangerous, cold class V under spring runoff conditions. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. Learn more about this land: A raw, pine forest lining the bedrock banks of Port Leyden's Fowlerville Falls, just inside of the Adirondack park. The former site of one of Georgia Pacific's old logging mills, the property has private access to beautiful water falls, a large swimming hole just off of a large, South-facing rock bank, untamed, clean pine forests, ATV and hiking trails, trout & small mouth bass fishing, many fire pits and areas to camp throughout the property.

The Swim Pond at Olin Springs

3 sites · RVs, Tents5 acres · Mount Vision, NY
The property was historically used for milk cows grazing and the farmer would put the milk jugs in the main emergent spring to keep cold. Federal wetlands in the back are protected from adding to or changing, but can be explored in your wellies! There was nothing on the land when purchased in 2018. We wanted to create our own lake front property for our retirement. The man made pond is blue clay, spring fed and holds water year round. Is was stocked with large mouth bass and channel catfish in 2020. Please, only keep fish over 12 inches. Learn more about this land: Camp in the meadows or down by the pond. Also a small stream and wetlands to explore. All campers can pick where they want to set up camp.

The best camping near Fort Stanwix National Monument guide

Overview

About

Downtown Rome, New York, is unlike any other downtown area in America. There's a reconstruction of a colonial fort. Fort Stanwix, nicknamed "The Fort That Never Surrendered", was a Revolution-era fort that withstood three battles and a month-long siege in 1777.

The layout of the fort looks like a four-point ninja throwing star when seen from above. The four points, elevated on a hill, held watchtowers to look for enemy troop movements. Placed every 8 to 10 feet in between the points were cannons designed to repel any attacks. Surrounding the fort was a fence of tall thick, sharp, pointy logs that made scaling the walls impossible.

Thanks to a well-trained fighting force of Americans, French, and Dutch troops, the British never captured Fort Stanwix. That's despite the fact it was made of earth and wood as opposed to bricks and concrete. American troops finally abandoned the fort in 1781 after the British threat subsided.

Today, you can stand on the ramparts that watched over the countryside and the town of Rome. Serve as a sentinel getting ready to call out to the troops below. Pretend to yell orders to cannoneers to fire their weapons. During busy months, people in period costumes bring life to Fort Stanwix.

Regular events include daily tours, summer concerts on the courtyard and the Junior Rangers program for kids. Nearby campsites offer a picture-perfect vacation to this idyllic countryside. Nearby Oneida Lake offers plenty of water to recreate in. The Silver Lake Wilderness to the east has scenic drives and hiking trails. Summer and early fall are perfect times to visit Fort Stanwix and Rome.
