Tent, cabin, RV, lean-to: camping abounds in the Adirondacks!

There is nothing like camping in the Adirondacks. Mist rising off the surface of a lake is the perfect complement to a cup of coffee, while loon calls are the perfect lullaby for a peaceful evening under the stars. Set off on foot for tent camping in the backcountry or reserve a spot at a campground with lots of amenities — either way, nature won't be far.

Leave No Trace and Love Your ADK

The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
