Great Camp Sagamore, NY

Great Camp Sagamore, 1105 Sagamore Rd, Raquette Lake, NY. 13436. "Built in 1897 by visionary great camps designer William West Durant on 1,526 acres of remote wilderness in the Adirondack Park, Great Camp Sagamore was a wilderness retreat for the Vanderbilt family for half a century.  It is now a National Historic Landmark managed by a non-profit educational institution as a public trust."

It is amazing the history, the architecture that is around this park. So amazing. I really enjoyed our visit there!!! I think my most favorite area or section would be the bowling alley, can you imagine having your very own bowling alley? Took think of how many years it has been around and still looks in pretty good condition compared to other areas or buildings, so wild!! Now they do have side that sort of hang over to keep the snow from falling into the bowling alley there, but that just blows my mind to think of the horrible Adirondack winters, just totally shocking!!! When I get rich, LOL! I will definitely have to have my own bowling alley, swimming pool and helpers to help me learn how to bowl 1st off! have a great day. i appreciate your comments. see ya again real soon. Beth ( ;
