Mt Baker Tiny Cabin

1 site 路 Lodging3 acres 路 Saranac Lake, NY
This off-the-grid tiny house is nestled on a 23 acre parcel at the end of a quarter-mile dirt road. The property itself is secluded but is less than 2 miles from the heart of Saranac Lake's downtown. This property is bordered by the Saranac River, the backside of Baker Mountain and State Forest. The only other building on the property is our timberframe which we may or may not be at during the time of your visit. The property does have private trails up to the cliffs on the backside of Baker mtn however, the Saranac River is down a steep embankment so it does not make for a good place to launch a boat (several public boat launches nearby). The Mt Baker tiny house is a great basecamp for hiking the Saranac Lake 6-ers, paddling/boating along the Saranac Chain of lakes or Saranac River, Mountain Biking at Dewey, Pisgah or other nearby BETA trails. IMPORTANT DETAILS: This tiny cabin is completely off the grid: no electricity, heat or cooling. Queen sized bed - we provide the linens. The driveway is narrow - so nothing in tow. Drinking water is provided via jug and dispenser. There is a brand new outhouse (no flushable toilet) We have a designated spot for campfires (smores are a must) There is an older propane grill outside for guest use

The Adirondack Park (ADK) consists of old growth forests that cover more than 100,000 acres of public land in the Park and we live in the park. The Adirondacks also includes the headwaters of five major drainage basins. Lake Champlain and the Hudson, Black, St. Lawrence and Mohawk Rivers all draw water from the Adirondack Park. Adirondack forests and wetlands filter and provide clean water for many communities in NY.

Adirondack Rustic Retreat

2 sites 路 Lodging240 acres 路 North Creek, NY
As far as we know, this land has聽been occupied since shortly after the civil war.聽 It is actually two farms, combined into one around 1900.聽The main farmhouse was built out of the logs they cleared in 1879, and there are old foundations of the other original farm houses/barns as well.聽 All over the property (now woods) there are piles of stones that the original inhabitants pulled from the fields.聽The second farm house was built in 1901. Most of the total 240 acres were cleared pasture land at that time.聽 During the twenties and thirties the property was owned by an industrious聽couple from the City that lovingly turned it into more of a "rustic retreat"; damming a pond, planting ornamentals and upgrading the buildings.聽 There have been many owners over the years, but we are proud to say it has been with us the longest.聽 Our family bought it in 1961 and we have been trying to be good stewards ever since.聽 Come and visit our little patch of wilderness!

- Ubuntu -

25 sites 路 RVs, Tents115 acres 路 Keeseville, NY
鈥淯buntu鈥 Def: An ancient African word meaning 鈥淗umanity to others鈥. It is a reminder of 鈥淚 am what I am because of who we all are.鈥 We do our best to bring the spirit of Ubuntu to our lives and property that we have been graced with. We hope your visit to Ubuntu will be peaceful and rejuvenating. At Ubuntu you will find the perfect spot to observe the April 8th TOTAL solar eclipse. There are no lights, no neighbors in sight, and you will have the freedom to choose your campsite or observation point, whether it is on the flat, nestled in the trees, or on top of Carney Mountain. RV鈥檚 will also easily find a spot to camp. The open areas and the top of Carney Mountain, which is a short hike with panoramic views of the area, are perfect spots to experience the solar eclipse. The 115 acres of Ubuntu offer many opportunities for camping, hiking and enjoying the abundant wildlife. There is a wet area that sometimes becomes several ponds if the beavers have been at work. There is a path leading to the ponds and also one that runs through the woods to the right of the ponds. The location is private and quiet but still very accessible to all the Adirondacks has to offer, such as biking, jogging, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and hiking. Ubuntu is located only 45 minutes from Lake Placid and the high peaks areas, Saranac Lake is about one hour away, Lake Champlain is 20 minutes away, and Montreal is one hour away. The ferry to Vermont if you wish to cross over the pond (Lake Champlain) is about 45 minutes. And if you love equestrian sports, the Willow Hill Equestrian Center is less than 1.5 miles away. Bring your horse and stable your buddy at the Willow Hill Farm, or sign up for a lesson with one of their accomplished instructors. Your furry pets are welcome, but we ask that you keep them on a leash if they tend to chase game or do not have a reliable recall. Please use good judgment. There are many deer on the property, so yes we do have ticks. Please take the necessary precautions. We hope that your visit to Ubuntu will be a great experience that you will enjoy and treasure! In Peace, Aisha and Moussa

The best camping near Adirondack State Park guide

Overview

About

Spread out over 6 million acres, nearly half of which are owned by New York state, Adirondack Park is the largest publicly protected area in the Lower 48. Here you'll find old forests laced with thousands of miles of hiking trails, plus an extensive network of streams and rivers, making the area particularly popular for fishing and boating. Other popular activities include rock climbing, ice climbing, and—of course—camping. The park has tons of public and private campgrounds, many of which can only be reached by boat.

Notable campgrounds

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve your campsite through New York State Parks online reservation system or over the phone.聽
  2. Walk-in camping is not allowed.
  3. Reservations open nine months in advance and remain open until 3pm on the day of your visit. Book early to ensure your chances of getting a spot, especially if coming in summer or on a weekend.
  4. If you can鈥檛 find a campsite in Adirondack Park on your preferred dates, you may have better luck with a Hipcamp in the area.

When to go

The Adirondacks are a year-round destination, with plenty of season-specific activities to choose from. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are popular in winter, when temperatures often drop well below freezing (and rarely get above 40掳F), while spring is a good time to check out waterfalls. Summertime temperatures often get up to the low 90掳s F, making the season ideal for camping and hiking, while autumn is a good time to see fall colors on display.

Know before you go

  • Newcomb鈥檚 Adirondack Park Visitor Interpretive Center is a good place to start your visit. Here you can get hiking and camping recommendations, find out about local events, and check out interpretive exhibits.
  • Just over half of New York's black bear population lives in Adirondack Park. Store food, cooking supplies, garbage, and scented toiletries in your car or in bear-safe lockers.
  • Adirondack Park is free to enter, but camping fees apply at state-run campgrounds.
  • The park features numerous ADA-accessible campgrounds and recreational areas.
