Swim Dock!

This summer we added a fabulous new swim dock to Camp Wilderness Sunrise! Our waterfront is shallow and sandy, which makes it a great place for kids and dogs to play. After realizing how much we hung out down there last summer after adding the docks along the shore under the deck, we thought it was time for a swim dock. Everyone needs a place to swim to!

Swim Dock 1 - Wild Center LodgingThis is no ordinary swim dock. It has two built in lounge chairs and a built in table – it’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy a picnic and a cold beverage, while you take in the view and try to avoid the splashing from the kids as they jump off. The weather this summer has been so amazing (and hot!). We’ve spent lots of weekends showing off Wild Walk at The Wild Center to friends, then stopping at Raquette River Brewing for some fresh beer, Well Dressed Foods for a gourmet picnic lunch and spending the rest of the day hanging out at the water. We hope you enjoy our new swim dock on your next visit!

Waterfront Deck and Lake Access

Let’s start with the lake and work our way in, shall we? This is our waterfront deck and lake access from Route 30. Camp Wilderness Sunrise–our Adirondack Vacation Rental–is across the street. The water is still pretty high here, and normally this deck would be completely out of the water.
