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.

Weddings

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.

    Absolutely perfect!

    Just wow! We just wrapped our wedding at Forest Lake Camp and it could not have been more amazing.

    Our friends and family keep gushing about how much fun they had, and as the photos are trickling in from them and our photographer we are continually blown away by how beautiful the whole thing was. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend all-around. The food was delicious, the grounds and facilities were gorgeous, the activities were a blast, and the staff was nothing short of incredible.

    We've been telling people that we want one of our friends to get married at FLC now so we can come back as guests!

    I would give 6 stars if I could!!!

    The team at Forest Lake Camp is nothing short of incredible. What sets them apart? THEY CARE! The staff run the place like a well-oiled machine while constantly checking in to make sure you have the help you need and all your guests are being taken care of. Most of the staff have a history with the camp so they truly want to be there and you could tell. They knew what we needed before we needed it and helped with little details that really made it look special. The facilities are amazing, property is beautiful and has more locations to take photos than you could want, and it is just off the beaten path!
    Our guests couldn’t say enough about how much they enjoyed “going back to summer camp”. There were activities for everyone, the scenery is amazing, and everyone had a blast making memories in their cabins together. Skip the 8 hour ceremony/cocktail hour/reception whirlwind and spend a WEEKEND with your closest friends and family. It was so special to be able to spend time with our guests instead of hugging them in a receiving line and never seeing them again. No driving, no going to get food, no killing time in a hotel room – Forest Lake was a true weekend experience for us and our guests! I seriously could not recommend FLC more.

    My wedding was a dream come true!

    Brett and his team at Forest Lake Camp were absolutely amazing! I could not have asked for anything more. They exceeded all expectations. Our wedding was a fun filled weekend right at the camp, that I didn't want to ever end. Our friends and family had a full weekend to spend hiking, canoeing, playing games, swimming and more! The camp staff made it all possible and super easy to coordinate all of our loved ones to have the best weekend for our wedding. Friday started with a BBQ and bon fire then Saturday tons of exciting things for our guests to do while staying at the camp before the ceremony/reception festivities started and Sunday ended with a delicious Brunch all part of their reasonable wedding package. The staff offered to help guests check in cabins and offered golf carts to those who needed. Anything you needed the staff was right there to assist. Not to mention the food was absolutely phenomenal for all meals (Friday/Saturday and Sunday). My husband and I didn't want a one day affair for our wedding we wanted to make it a full weekend party and that is exactly what we got because of FLC! Our guests didn't have to worry about a thing, 90% of them stayed right at the camp with us in cabins which was amazing. I could go on and on for hours about how terrific this venue was to work with. I highly recommend it to brides and grooms looking for a destination wedding in the Adirondacks that love the outdoors. Brett made this whole experience easy and I wanted to just hang out with him and his staff. The coolest part of our wedding was where we got married which was called the "Chapel", a little bit of a hike but all and all worth it for all guests to see. I also loved the accommodating staff helping fill the canoe full of beers and then trucking it over to our Bon Fire after party both nights. Just goes to show how great this team really is! I just want to re live this weekend over and over again! The team at FLC just made us feel like part of the FLC family right away, we even got a plaque with our names/wedding date displayed in the Mess Hall. We got to bring one home too which was super special! I couldn't recommend this venue more! THANK YOU!
