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.
