Adirondak Loj: Wilderness Campground at Heart Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Hikers, take note: the campground with the best real estate in the Adirondacks is not a DEC property. Nestled in the heart of the High Peaks, Adirondak Loj and the adjacent campground at Heart Lake are a perfectly situated backpacker’s haven owned by the Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK). Since 1922, the ADK has been promoting a balance of “outdoor recreation, advocacy, environmental education, and natural resource conservation,” according to its mission statement. As part of their mission, they operate a unique property with a variety of lodging experiences, from tent sites, lean-tos, and canvas cabins to a traditional cabin and rustic rooms within the historic Loj (which is to say nothing of the ADK’s nearby hike-in properties: John Brooks Lodge, Grace Camp, and Camp Peggy O’Brien).
NOTE: Dogs must have proof of currently valid rabies vaccination."
