Winter Snowshoe to Camp Santanoni

A couple of weeks ago a few friends and I snowshoed to the Great Adirondack Camp Santanoni in Newcomb. For a few weekends every winter, they open the camp up for visitors and serve hot chocolate in one of the huts by the lake. The special thing about this Camp is that it’s only accessible in the winter by snowshoe or cross country ski! It is a five mile journey to the camp from the parking area, making it a long hike, but totally worth it! The views on the walk in were amazing!

You can see Santanoni from the trail. When we got there we checked out the inside. It was huge! So many rooms.

The walls were covered in birch bark.

 

The arrows were pointing in the direction of the hot beverages. This one had a can of coffee on it! We sat and enjoyed our beverages for a little bit before hitting the trail back out.

It was a very warm day, the snow was slowly melting all around us.
