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.
