Select Your Culinary Experiences
In the iconic Adirondack Great Camp tradition, food was a signature part of your stay. It was meant to fuse the ingredients of nature and natural foods, where the mystical woods and water added their natural aroma and flavor to hand-stocked soups, slow-cooked roasts, and Old World desserts. The final ingredient was a nature-based activity that topped your experience. Culinary settings were purposely varied to symbolize the diversity and richness of the Adirondacks and the nearly limitless experiences you can behold. From fine dining to picnics on the beach, the culinary experience was as diverse as the mountains.
