This camp will accommodate up to 4 people who are looking for relaxation, privacy, outside adventure or just emptying out by doing 'nothing'.
The camp is electricity-free with hot water, refrigerator, stove and lights running quietly on a propane system.You won't believe how calm you will feel after a few days without electricity and wireless running through your system.

                          The best of both worlds.'Singing Mountain Adirondack Camp' is located one and a half miles from the small village of Wells. On your stroll through town you may like to visit the beach, kayak, canoe or fish in Lake Algonquin, play some tennis, while the kids enjoy the playground, check out the library and small shops or grab a snack at the local cafe. The camp is close to hiking and dirt bike trails, many lakes and rivers to fish and boat in. Nature outside your front door but one hour from Saratoga, Lake George, Albany,Glens Falls and all they have to offer.

                          Other Activities: Wells is a small village of about 750 people. It's a great place to settle in, shake off technology and get re-acquainted with the natural world around you. The four mile hike around Lake Algonquin is a favorite fitness route, and every trail or dirt road leads to waterfalls, ponds, ancient forests. This area is famous for its geological history and sea fossils are often found. In the last few years several bald eagles have been reported to bird watchers delight. While sitting on the porch of 'Singing Mountain' overlooking the pond, you'll be the guest of many animals who come to drink. Ducks, turtles, deer, turkeys, blue herons. With the absence of street lights, this is THE place for star gazers. You've never seen the Milky Way glow like it does here. Take a blanket to lie on, look up and find amazement and wonder again.
