Illusions of Roughing It

Experience the illusion of roughing it in the Adirondack wilderness at the Vanderbilts’ Camp Sagamore — a “working” National Historic Landmark. Recall the era of robber barons as a local historian orients you to the Gilded Age. Expert-led tours reveal the social and architectural heritage of Sagamore and J.P. Morgan’s Camp Uncas. Examine the rustic materials used in vernacular architecture and the most recent historic preservation projects and techniques. Consider camp life in the harsh Adirondack winters in the workers’ complexes. In the guest houses, imagine servants catering to you during summer hunting and fishing trips with the Vanderbilts. On your final night, a famous Adirondack storyteller and singer gives insights into folklore.
