Adirondack great camp to open for President’s Day weekend
NEWCOMB, N.Y. (AP) — Cross-country skiers and snowshoers are welcome this weekend to an open house at a historic Adirondack great camp.
Visitors will be able to visit both the Gate Lodge and Main Lodge of Camp Santanoni this President’s Day weekend, from Saturday through Monday.
The camp in Newcomb was one of the earliest great camps built by wealthy families beginning in the late 19th century. It’s now managed by state environmental officials.
People can visit the camp all year, but the buildings are not typically open to the public during winter.
The round trip from Camp Santanoni’s Gate House complex along Route 28N to the lakeside main lodge complex is 9.8 miles.
The Adirondack Interpretive Center will provide snowshoes at the Gate Lodge for any visitors without their own.
