About Forest Lake Camp

Schedule your next family reunion, wedding, school group, photo shoot or business retreat at Forest Lake Camp, nestled in the majestic Southern Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. Our gorgeous, natural setting and authentic Adirondack facilities offer a unique and unforgettable destination for your retreat. We are a traditional Adirondack overnight summer camp and our facilities are generally available to rent from Memorial Day Weekend to the beginning of July and Aug 20 through to beautiful fall foilage of the 2nd weeknd in October.

Forest Lake Camp sits on just over 800 acres at the southern end of the Adirondack Park in New York. From various locations on camp, you can see a good portion of the southern Adirondack peaks and Vermont's Green Mountains, all in our "backyard". We also have our very own, private, spring fed lake with over 20 miles of private woodland trails and mountain bike paths.

Forest Lake has exceptional staff, who are available to lead activities, provide leadership training and can tailor programs to meet the needs of your group.

For the past several years FLC has been a premiere location for an Adirondack style destination wedding.

We are extremely flexible and have purposefully not created a cookie cutter approach to anyones big day.

We help you create a magical experience for your guests of all ages and create a weekend that nobody will ever forget, including a Friday night welcome BBQ and campfire, a fun and active Saturday with an afternoon wedding and evening reception, and finally a late Sunday breakfast for guests as they pack up.

    Wedding at FLC

    Hosting our daughters wedding September 22nd 2018 at FLC was one of the best decisions. The 5 stars I rated are more than deserved. The Director Brett Booker was superior in everything he did for our guests. The staff so respects Brett which results in phenomenal team work of which the guests and wedding party are the recepients of these efforts. Communication up to the wedding was outstanding and only continued throughout the weekend. Chef Peter creates meals for all and with such ease and we hosted 158 people and everyone raved about the food. The venue is unique and creates the greatest wedding memories you can ask for . We had 110 people stay in cabins and that included 18 people ages 65 plus who all had a great experience. Camp activities the day of the wedding included Yoga ( taught by my daughter) hiking , canoeing, archery, and a soccer game. The activities were the talk of the night at the reception.
    I give FLC and staff my highest recommendation for hosting a wedding.

    Best Place, Best People, Best Wedding!

    If it were possible, I would rate this as a 7 star experience. I grew up going to FLC for about 8 summers and can honestly say it's one of the most incredible places in the world. At that time weddings were not hosted at FLC so I, like all other brides, did not know what a camp wedding could be like. Brett & his staff at FLC certainly know how to turn rustic into chic, and utilize the beautiful Adirondack setting into an elegant affair. We must have had 100 questions along the way and Brett was able to answer all of them with ease, and in a timely fashion. FLC wedding's are not cookie cutter, rather they are tailored to what you want to do and how you envision your day. Brett & his staff make this as personal as possible and really get to know the bride and groom before the day comes. We hosted a wedding of 156, with 115 staying in the cabins ranging from the age of 2-73. Everyone has raved about the wedding, and 2 months later we are still hearing about how amazing the food was thanks to Chef Peter. If you are thinking about having your wedding here, do it! It is unique, and your friends and family will get on board and have the time of their lives!

    I would classify Forest Lake Camp and Rustic Luxury. FLC is a summer camp and it definitely feels like a summer camp. The cabins are not heated and are equipped with bunk beds. But the staff is so amazing and they pay attention to every little details that you feel like you are at a 5 star resort. My guests enjoyed spending the weekend with us at the camp. They went fishing, rock climbing, tested their skills in the archery range, and we all got to eat every meal together in the gorgeous new mess hall. The chef is incredible and people were raving about the food. If you are open to adventure and want your wedding to be more than just a 4 hour hotel party, this is the place to go!
