High Falls Gorge is the Adirondacks' most breathtaking, year-round, 30-minute walk. Witness four majestic waterfalls cascading over rocks into a deep crevice carved a billion years ago, learn about all the natural wonders of the falls, grab a bite to eat at the River View Café, and browse the gift shop. Just a short drive from Lake Placid and one mile from Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort, this is the perfect stop for half a day or half an hour.

A bit a drive (about an hour and half away). It makes a wonderful day trip. Explore inside of the fort to learn about the history during the French and Indian War as well a the Revolutionary War: the War for Independence. Stroll through the Kings Gardens or the battle fields. There is food at fort but I enjoy checking out what down town has to offer instead.

City/town information
A decidedly different little town located only 20 minutes from Camp Arden. Make every day decidedly adventurous. Don’t even think about staying inside when you’re in Saranac Lake. There’s fun, adventure, and scenic beauty to be found in every direction! Take a hike right from downtown up Mount Baker (or any of the Saranac Lake Sixer Mountains), or head over to Lake Colby for great to enjoy the beach or take a kayak out on the water. A different kind of downtown. On full display are creative eateries, galleries, and shops. Whether you are looking for cultural and arts events, a snowy forest to explore, or a world-class menu to peruse, you’ll find downtown Saranac Lake is alive with all kinds of activity. We keep the excitement going year-round with a steady rotation of live music, eclectic art, and decadent dining. Breathe deep, relax, and enjoy life Saranac Lake style!

Lake Placid is an opportunity to enjoy fresh, mountain air and majestic views. Only located 40 minutes from Camp Arden. Enjoy the beauty of the landscape: peaks, valleys with awe-inspiring natural vistas that will leave you speechless. Nature is never far from downtown. The region is home to hundreds of miles of trails that are perfect for a quiet walk in the woods. Fuel up for any adventure at any number of locally-loved and locally-owned restaurants and shops; they're all perfectly splendid. Olympic-sized scenery: from smaller summits to the Olympic venues, Lake Placid is legendary for big views, big scenery, and big history, but with a charming, small town twist, which is why we call it home.

Nature is never very far away, even from downtown. Stroll through town and get fresh donuts, some local tea, or a unique Adirondack souvenir. A little farther out, miles of mellow (and not-so-mellow) hiking trails offer countless adventures and unforgettable scenery. The Tupper Lake Triad hiking challenge is a great cool weather adventure that includes a fire tower peak, and endless views of the Adirondacks. While the Adirondacks may be known for spectacular mountain vistas and picturesque towns, Tupper Lake also boasts some of the darkest skies in the Northeast that are perfect for stargazing. There's no shortage of restaurant options here, and beer lovers will be thrilled to learn there is the outstanding Raquette River Brewing. Downtown sidewalks are not crowded, but alive with local spirit and unique buys.
