French Pond Camp is situated upon 5.25 acres of beautiful Adirondack wooded land surrounded by 13,000 acres of state land in the Western Adirondack Mountains. There is a private, sandy beach area which is wonderful for swimming. Near French Pond are many surrounding ponds such as Long Pond, Round Pond, Rock Pond, Trout Pond, Clear Pond and Mud Pond which are all within two miles. The Oswegatchie River and Upper French Pond are both within approximately 300 yards of French Pond for easy access. A trail head for Jake's Pond can be found at the end of Long Pond Road only about 3 miles away. PLUS, French Pond guests have water access on our sister property at spectacular Long Pond (see listing 3560285 and 3937791). There are maps at Camp for your use to personalize your own Adirondack Adventure!
For snowmobiling, Camp is located near Lewis County #5 and #8 trails – all beautiful trails to anywhere in the state. We have made Camp convenient for winter occupancy with a furnace and an optional wood stove to keep you warm. We supply the wood so you can ride all day and come home to sit by a warm fire.
French Pond Camp was custom built by a local, master cabinet maker. Camp is two levels with an extra large, covered front porch leading the way to a beautiful very spacious custom kitchen with a gorgeous cherry floor dining room. Two new full bathrooms, laundry area, cozy-scenic living room and one bedroom completes the first level. A custom log staircase takes you to the second level with three bedrooms.
No matter what the season, every day is beautiful. The summer sun off the water, winter all in white or the fall with its intense colors. The Camp is surrounded by huge white pines, hemlock woods and maple hardwoods for color and fragrance. Camp is approximately fourteen miles from the town of Croghan.
A canoe, rowboat and kayak are available for your enjoyment on French Pond. Plus, Camp has a wonderful sandy beach which is perfect for swimming. Enjoy a game of horseshoes or a campfire by the pond at night.
To make your stay enjoyable we supply wood for the campfires and wood stoves, blankets, pillows, bathroom tissue, paper towels, dish towels, dish soap, cleaning supplies and basic spices.
