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.
