Mt Baker Tiny Cabin

1 site · Lodging3 acres · 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

Adirondack Magic

4 sites · RVs25 acres · Elizabethtown, NY
We are located in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks between Lake Champlain and Lake Placid. The area is legendary for a multitude of hiking trails, mountain biking, and lakes/rivers for paddling. There are amazing natural environments such as Ausable Chasm and it's also an area rich in American historical sites. We are centrally located making area events and popular destinations an easy drive. We are also close to Rt 87 for ease of access yet far enough away to enjoy plenty of quiet and space in nature. The 2 RV site areas are very large with ample space for large RV turnaround and parking for vehicle. We are 300 feet off a road and are surrounded by small hamlets and villages within the park. There is so much to do in this vacation wonderland. Enjoy local breweries and vineyards during your visit. In addition, most every drive is a scenic drive and traffic is almost nonexistent except in some areas during high tourism. You will love it here! We do! 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.

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. 
  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’t 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°F), while spring is a good time to check out waterfalls. Summertime temperatures often get up to the low 90°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’s 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.
