About Great Camp Sagamore:

Sagamore, a National Historic Landmark located in Raquette Lake, is a 27-building complex built by William West Durant from  1895-97.  The camp is located on an otherwise undeveloped lake in the  Blue Ridge Wilderness, a 40,000 area section of the Adirondack Forest Preserve, and was once the private estate of the Alfred Vanderbilt family.

From 1900 through the 1940s, Sagamore was visited by the leading writers, artists, businessmen and political figures of the early 20th century. Durant’s complex is considered one of the finest of the Adirondack “Great Camps” and is an architectural model of National Park Service rustic building design.
