Great Camp Sagamore is a National Historic Landmark located in the Adirondack Park near Raquette Lake, NY. Our 27 authentic buildings were once the wilderness estate of the Vanderbilt family from 1901-1954.
We are open to the public for accommodations from Memorial Day through mid-October. Come stay with us for a relaxing weekend, corporate retreat, family event, Road Scholar courses, and of course our own unique programs! Our Grands Camp sessions in the summer are nationally acclaimed and our Mountain Music and Dance weekend sells out yearly! Visit our website, greatcampsagamore.org, to find out more about staying at Camp.
Great Camp Sagamore also offers public tours, throughout the season! Our tour guides take you on a walking tour of camp, sharing the stories of both the Vanderbilt family and the workers who maintained the camp.
Sagamore is currently closed for the season. We reopen for tours in June. For more information about our tours, visit our website. Dedicated to the enjoyment of education, interpretation & historic preservation, Great Camp Sagamore is not a hotel, it is a bit of history. We hope you’ll join the many volunteers, guests and donors who make Sagamore such a special place!
