Whether it’s boating, fishing, camping or hiking, Raquette Lake boasts all of it. Raquette Lake is also the birthplace of the Great Camps Architecture. William West Durant, the developer and entrepreneur, envisioned luxurious rustic estates to rejuvenate in the healthy mountain air. Adirondack Great Camps, Pine Knot, Uncas and Sagamore are three extraordinary places showcasing Durant’s vision. A visit to Raquette Lake is truly stepping back into a traditional way of life, but with elegant dining, great camps and a beautiful lake, Raquette Lake has something for everyone.
