Camping

Notice: some Adirondack campgrounds run by the state of New York are currently closed. This measure is in effect to help control the spread of the novel coronavirus. The state Department of Environmental Conservation is working to open campgrounds as it is deemed safe. In addition, the state campgrounds are not currently taking new reservations or walk-in campers. This will be reviewed by the DEC and updates will be shared as soon as possible. If you have an existing reservation, please check the DEC website to ensure that your campground is open.

America's original campground

The Adirondacks has been a leisure-time camping destination for well over a century, and for good reason! From elegant great camps to remote sites set up by grizzled guides, camping in the Adirondacks is a truly American tradition. And the Whiteface Region has every type of camping one can imagine.

Frontcountry camping

For those who would like to sleep out under the stars but still have modern amenities like toilets and running water, the Whiteface Region has a number of drive-in campgrounds. Public and private campgrounds typically have features like bathrooms, showers, fire pits, picnic tables, and safe places to dispose of garbage and recycling. From tents to RVs, frontcountry camping is a great way to experience everything the Whiteface Region has to offer.

Backcountry camping

The more adventurous people in your party may want to get away from the crowds and roads and into the backcountry of the Whiteface Region. And don't worry, there's plenty of backcountry in the roughly 6-million acre Adirondacks! Backcountry camping will require a hike (short or long, your choice) and the sites will likely be little more than a flat place to pitch a tent. But it's hard to beat the peace and serenity that comes with hauling your gear into a remote site.

Glamping

The term "glamping" may generate some scoffs among the hikers in your group, but it's hard to argue with the appeal of having a site already set up for you when you get to the Adirondacks! Enjoy the rustic woods while still having a pool to swim in or a classic summer camp cabin to rest in. And for the more free-spirited campers, Wilmington's own Wilderness Van allows you to rent fully restored VW Westfalia camper vans for your Adirondack adventures!

Want to camp but maybe you want a little freedom to easily camp in a new spot every day? Thanks to Wilmington's Wilderness Van, adventurous campers can rent a super cool campervan or travel trailer and hit the open roads of the Adirondacks! With a rental from Wilderness Van, you can explore more of the Adirondacks than ever! Wilderness Van's staff will even deliver to you at your campground of choice in the area, so pack up your marshmallows, bathing suits, and flip flops. Camp life on wheels awaits!

Regardless of your camping style, sleeping "under the stars" is the perfect way to enjoy your Whiteface Region vacation! And be sure to experience everything the region has to offer, from fishing to cocktails and dinner to mountain biking.

Leave No Trace and Love Your ADK

The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
