(from Route 12 & River Street in Lowville)
In Lowville, turn east on River Street from Route 12 (there is a Stewart’s Gas Station on the southwest corner of River Street). If you are driving north on Route 12 that means you will make a right to get onto River Street/Country Rd 22. Continue on River Street for 4 miles (it becomes Number Four Road). After 4 miles take a left hand turn to continue on Number Four Road/Country Rd 26 (the Watson Inn will be on the far left corner and a garden nursery will be on your right). Stay on Number Four Road for 13.5 miles. Turn right onto Stillwater Road (you will see a sign for Stillwater Reservoir). Continue 1.2 miles on Stillwater road until you see a colorful Unirondack mailbox on your right. The entrance to Unirondack will be on your left, marked by a tall sign on a tree. Follow a narrow dirt road for approximately one mile to the Camp Unirondack site. This is a one lane road with cars coming in both directions! Drive very slowly and watch for cars coming in the other direction. Pay special attention around curves in road. Be ready to pull over to the side if a car is coming in the other direction. There is a parking lot on the upper level of camp and parking areas on our field on the lower level of camp.
