Welcome to Great Camp Sagamore in the Adirondacks at Raquette Lake, NY. Our 27 authentic National Historic Landmark designated buildings were the wilderness estate of the Vanderbilt family from 1901-1954. We are open to the public for accommodations and tours from Memorial Day until mid-October. Be sure to check our availability for a relaxing weekend, retreat, family event or a Road Scholar course. Our Grands Camp sessions in summer are nationally acclaimed. Dedicated to the enjoyment of education, interpretation & historic preservation, Great Camp Sagamore is not a hotel, it is a bit of history.
Vintage Vanderbilt Camp, Sagamore is a National Historic Landmark. The two hour guided tour of 27 buildings includes the caretaker's village, the famous Main Lodge and a one-of-a-kind open-air bowling alley. Tours are at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. daily in summer, 1:30 p.m. in fall.
There is a permanent exhibit and virtual tour for those who do not have a full two hours to spend. Admission is charged. Excellent gift shop. It is also possible to stay in our authentic buildings.
Please be aware that in the interests of the health and safety of guests and staff, Great Camp Sagamore is closed for the 2020 season. Please visit our website for "At Home with Great Camp Sagamore;" there you will find special stories and activities for all ages.
