RS The Illusion of Roughing It (14875)


Get a taste of the Gilded Age version of “roughing it” as you stay in the National Historic Landmark Great Camp Sagamore.  Once known as the Adirondack wilderness estate owned by the Vanderbilts, Camp Sagamore is situated on pristine Sagamore Lake outside of Raquette Lake, NY.  Its rustic architecture and main lodge with stone fireplace and spectacular views recalls the opulent era of the “Robber Barons.” Learn about the heyday of this Adirondack Great Camp and the fascinating work being done to preserve this historical site. You will also spend an afternoon with legendary Adirondack storyteller Bill Smith.  There’s also time to canoe the lake, explore the wilderness on the camp’s 20 miles of trails, play croquet or just relax.
