We’re carpooling to Upper Saranac Lake Region in Upstate NY!

OK, so it really won’t be your own private island and we’re not actually renting out an island. But because of the timing, there’s no reservations required and no one’s out camping. We take advantage and enjoy almost 100% privacy and ridiculous northeast colors. It’s a full day’s roadtrip with a supply stop. Then a paddle out to our campground. Then camp set up, campfire, and chill. Next day Tuesday, we explore waterways via canoe, with some portaging involved, as far as we can go. Wednesday, we explore areas we missed and/or other activities like fishing, swimming, etc. We head back Thursday. The itinerary is fluid, meaning we get there when we get there, we get started when we get started, we wrap up when we wrap up. If you’re signing up to this trip, I hope you’re OK with that. At $349, this trip is a bit on the pricier side, but consider that you’re getting a roadtrip, fun times, good vibes, awesome activities, and a chance to unplug and relax for a week. Fee does not include food, drink, camping gear, tolls and gas. It does include a seat in the minivan, your canoe rental for 4 days, along with paddle and PFD.

This trip is so awesome, we did it twice last year. Twice! It’s a beginner hike through the woods, past a reservoir and an abandoned mill, until we get to a watering hole where we can chill all afternoon swimming... or cliff diving. Word. There is no fee to go. Transportation included (limit 6).
