Unirondack is located on a 9-acre plot of land on a small peninsula on Beaver Lake in the Western Adirondack Park in Upstate New York about 30 miles east of Lowville, NY on land previously occupied by the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, specifically the Mohawk and Oneida Nations. We are roughly 90 minutes north of Utica and 2.5 hours from Syracuse.
The camp is comprised of nine summer cabins in five buildings with 3 additional buildings for rental use. We have a large presentation/theater space, a small recording studio, a field for large group activities or sports, a gaga pit, a swingset and small basketball court, a large Adirondack-style lodge with fireplace, and a large heated dormitory-style building. Our maximum sleeping capacity is around 150 although our dining hall only seats 120 at a time. On the lake we have a boathouse and a beautiful artshop studio space. Our boathouse has 14 canoes, 10 kayaks, and 2 sunfish sailboats and we have a small beachfront with a dock and swimming area. Additionally we have a large campfire circle which can seat about 100 people.
Landscape & Accessibility:
Unirondack as a grounds is fairly rough to move about in. We have ramps and some wheelchair accessible buildings at camp and with the right accommodations and planning we can meet most folks needs however prior arrangements are recommended as there are still many spaces on camp that are not accessible to people with wheelchairs or other mobility assists. We are working to increase the accessibility of camp to folks with mobility needs but to a large extent we admit that it will be some time before we can ever call ourselves accessible to those with mobility needs.
Weather & Climate:
During the summer the average temperature is about 68 degrees in summer with 3.5 inches of rain per month in July and August. We are a remote camp, located 30 miles from the nearest small town of Lowville. This provides us a breathtaking night sky as well as a feeling of true oneness with nature that we feel is essential to our camp experience. In the spring and fall the average evening temperature can dip into the 40s.
