Close your eyes and picture the perfect camping trip. In all likelihood, you envisioned a sunny scene set amongst running waters and green forests. Maybe you saw yourself roasting marshmallows around a flickering fire, a blanket of stars painting the night sky.
Old Forge Camping Resort, on the other hand, paints a very different picture. Though this New York nook does offer phenomenal summer camping options, the outdoor adventures continue even when the temperatures drop. In fact, Old Forge allows you to explore the Adirondacks’ natural splendor all year round.
Although the weather is cool, the adventures really heat up during the winter. The snow-powdered landscape is the key to winter fun. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore the area on snowmobiling, skiing, and snowshoeing excursions. In fact, Old Forge has been dubbed the “Snowmobile Capital of the East.”
“Our heated cabins and cottages are the most popular during the winter months, especially for snowmobilers, who can drive their sleds right to their front door,” Director of Marketing Katie Wojdyla said.
These heated cabins and cottages are a great alternative for those who want to be close to nature but don’t want to rough it. These warm accommodations offer a rustic touch with knotty pine interiors and breathtaking forest views. Sit out on the porch swing, roast marshmallows around the fire circle, or savor a family meal at the picnic table.
These off-season outdoor excursions offer all of the fun at just a portion of the price. Vacation value season is from mid-October through the end of December and from mid-March through early June. Though the prices are low, peace is at its peak. With sparse crowds, you’ll find plenty of space to explore.
“We rent cabins, cottages, and sites for the whole winter season,” Wojdyla said. “Our affordable rates make it easy to come and go as you please throughout the entire winter season.”
Of course, summer is still the most popular season. Be sure to make your reservations in advance so you can hike the lush nature trails, enjoy aquatic adventures on Lake Serene, and go zip-lining at Calypso’s Cove Family Fun Center. In addition, Sunday through Thursday Stay 'N Play packages are available in the summer and include discounted accommodations and discounted tickets to the Enchanted Forest Water Safari.
With exceptional camping accommodations and adventures all year round, Old Forge Camping gives you a reason to visit every season.
