Long Pond Camp is situated upon a peninsula surrounded by water in the Western Adirondack Mountains. Long Pond is about one and a half miles long with many surrounding ponds such as Round Pond, Rock Pond, Trout Pond, Clear Pond and Mud Pond which are all within an easy walking distance. Jake's Pond is a beautiful, longer walk on one of many marked trails. Some of the ponds can be paddled to directly or paddle down the Oswegatchie River to Rock Pond, Trout Pond or Mud Pond. There are maps at Camp for your use to personalize your own Adirondack Adventure.
For snowmobiling, Camp is located near Lewis County #5 and #8 trails – all beautiful trails to anywhere in the state. We have made Camp convenient for winter occupancy with a new furnace and an optional wood stove plus a stone fireplace to keep you warm. We supply the wood so you can ride all day and come home to sit by a warm fire.
Long Pond Camp was built as a hunting camp in 1926. Camp is three levels with a walk-in basement containing a bar and game area and full bathroom. The main floor has a large kitchen, master bedroom with a full bathroom, dining and living rooms with a stone fireplace and surrounding beautiful window views. The third level contains two private bedrooms and a large dorm with two queen and two full size beds. Great for kids to bunk together!
Camp sets on a peninsula surrounded on three sides by water. A screened porch and two open decks overlook the beautiful Adirondacks. No matter what the season, every day is beautiful. The summer sun off the water, winter all in white or the fall with its intense colors. The Camp is surrounded by huge white pines, hemlock woods and maple hardwoods for color and fragrance. Camp is located 1/4 mile on a private driveway off peaceful Long Pond Road. Camp is approximately fourteen miles from the town of Croghan.
Two kayaks, two canoes and a rowboat are available for your enjoyment. Plus, Camp has a wonderful sandy beach which is perfect for swimming. Enjoy a game of horseshoes or a campfire by the pond at night.
To make your stay enjoyable we supply wood for the campfires and wood stoves, blankets, pillows, bathroom tissue, paper towels, dish towels, dish soap, cleaning supplies and basic spices.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Perfect end of summer vacation!
Our family absolutely loved this home, the surrounding property and all of the access to fun and relaxation! Erin was friendly, helpful and provided timely responses. We will be back next year!
Fantastic, quiet lake
We had wonderful time. You have lake on 3 sides and nice views. There is a nice area for kids to swim and we had fun boating from one lake to another through the rivers. We loved every part of the long pond camp. Thank you!
We loved our time at Long Pond House. It accommodated 9 of us very comfortably.
Wonderful place to stay! We had access to canoes, kayaks, paddleboat, hiking. We enjoyed our time immensely. Beautiful views of lake. House was we'll supplied with dishes,cookware, etc. Wood was supplied so we enjoyed our campfire in the evening. Lots of areas to kayak.
This was our second time staying at Long Pond. We rent both houses and fill them up with cousins, aunts and uncles and of course our dog, Fergie. It is such a great way to reconnect and there are activities for all ages. Hiking, swimming, kayaking and fishing as well as campfires in the evening. If it rains( as it did) , the main house is big enough and well stocked with games, books and videos for everyone to find something to do and a place to do it.
Don't forget to take the hike to the waterfall!
rustic cabin steps from hiking trails, lots of wildlife
My husband and I stayed at the cabin with our four kids (aged 18 months to 6 years) and my elderly mother and everyone had a terrific time. There was a shallow beach where my kids could splash in the water all day, a dock for them to fish from, canoes and kayaks, and terrific hiking trails just a few yards away from the house. One trail led to a hidden beach, another led to a gorgeous waterfall, and the woods were full of animals and mushrooms and wild blueberries. We saw lots of deer, LOTS of adorable beavers, and even a fox swimming right past the cabin, plus many different species of turtles and frogs. Everyone had a ball and we hope very much to return next year. The property is probably not for everyone -- the electricity sometimes went out, and there was no internet, plus the nearest grocery store was pretty far away-- maybe 40 minutes away. Squirrels and chipmunks kept getting inside (my kids LOVED this, but you might not), and there was no shortage of mice. Finally, the cabin is on the same lake as a summer camp for teens. On the one hand, the camp staff was very nice to us-- they helped us with directions and shared wild-life viewing tips and even helped us fix a flat tire. On the other hand, some of the campers were really loud, and they sometimes had dance parties with blaring music. For laid-back, nature-loving parents, however, this place is PERFECT. We highly recommend it.
This was a perfect winter escape. We loved the living room with large windows overlooking the pond. It was cozy with the wood stove. Everything was clean and well stocked. It was great to walk out the door and be on the trails. We also went to the end of Long Pond Rd and hiked those trails. The folks at the Education Center were helpful, good neighbors!
The only parts of the house we did not use was the front upstairs bedroom, and the basement, as they were quite cold. We had plenty of comfortable space in the main living area.
We hope to return to experience summer at this lovely place.
Located in the Eastern Adirondacks there is unlimited outdoor adventure from hiking trails right outside the door to using Camp's kayaks and canoes on the pond or take them down the Oswegatchie River. Drive to Old Forge or the Adirondack Museum for the day. Winter time offers easy access to all of New York's snowmobiling trails. Ski Snow Ridge by day and sit by the stone fireplace at night.
