Great lake camp

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome family vacation here. The additional building was great for our extended family. The set up for the while camp and property made our stay very enjoyable. We have 4 pugs and they really enjoyed camp too. From the spacious lawn that was drenched in sunshine, to the screened in porch with a view of the lake to the private beach with dock - everything came together to create a superb family vacation. We will be back!

Classic Adirondack Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our kids love visiting Essex, and this camp is the type of place that makes timeless memories of a family summer vacation. The view from the screened porch looking straight at Split Rock is my favorite place to have coffee and the easy access to the water by walking across the expansive lawn, or by car if there's too much to carry, is a huge plus. Make sure you have dinner at the Essex Inn. We will be back!
