In the late 1800s, Blue Mountain Lake attracted the very wealthiest families in America
as a great retreat; some of their great camps are still visible from the water. Behind
the scenes, the servants and lumberjacks of the area lead to many interesting stories
that give this region its rich cultural heritage. Our tour features the camps, hotels,
steamboats, workers, and players in the late 1800s. As the era draws to a close,
we cover the last of the great camps and the whirlwind of typhus and bankruptcy that
follows. As a new generation emerges, preservation and conservation in our times
also play a part in the great Adirondack story. Between the beautiful scenery, fascinating
history, and interesting tour guide, our historic boat cruise is one part of the
Adirondack experience you will not want to miss!
