Home to one of America's premier Scout Camps with an extensive summer program, Curtis S. Read Scout Reservation also offers many opportunities for Fall-Spring camping in the southern Adirondacks.  The Reservation's 1,200 acres bordering on the Pharoah Wilderness Area offer plenty of tent camping locations as well as two fully-equipped indoor facilities: the Log Cabin and the Farmhouse.  Nearby attractions include Lake George, Gore Mountain, Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain as well as day trip opportunities into the Adirondacks.  Contact the Council Camping Department for reservation information or view facility reservation status.  Camping Department Fax Number: 914-449-2690.
