We had a wonderful time on vacation at Camp Eastwood. We have traveled as a large family group before (15-22 people) but, by far, Camp Eastwood is the best place ever!! Everything was clean and comfortable. Thick, generous, ample towels, kitchen fully stocked, plenty of pots and pans to actually cook for a crowd, silverware, glassware wise -- all organized with easy access. First time in a long long time that we didn't feel the need to wash the dishes when we arrived! This place is immaculate!!! It just beams PRIDE in OWNERSHIP, and is beautifully designed and decorated, in an Adirondack style. The view, oh my, the view is gorgeous!
The kitchen table was huge - it was nice to be able to fit so many at once, and also nice to use it as a game table for the kids, and even after the kids went to bed. The caretaker provided us with enough wood for the brand new firepit, was on top of the trash, and was very knowledgeable to the area and attractions. The kayaks and canoe were happily used. Some of us brought our bicycles and would ride to the meadow and pick delicious blueberries (an easy walk). We fished from the dock and caught quite a few fish. We used the steam room and it was heaven after a day of play. Everything was absolutely perfect at Camp Eastwood. We aren't a family to stay at the same place twice, but we are so looking forward to returning this August. OH, Camp Eastwood is air conditioned too, big big plus!
We typically like staying in Lake Placid because that's where my Dad grew up, but there is nothing in Lake Placid large enough to comfortably accommodate our big family with plenty of bathrooms. With Camp Eastwood, every family could pretty much get ready at the same time with so many bathrooms - never a shortage of hot water - and we could all be showered and dressed and out the door for dinner at a reasonable time after a day of hiking, biking, fishing. Lake Placid is only about a 15 minute drive, not bad, and Saranac has a lot to offer and explore too.
I would highly recommend Camp Eastwood in a heartbeat. Stop looking -- this place is the by far the best. If I had to give one negative, it would be..... the week went too fast, way too fast.. Oh, and my great nephew and nieces were crying because they didn't want to leave... come to think of it, I think I was crying too, I didn't want to leave either. Camp Eastwood is amazing!! Absolutely amazing. And yes, we all "felt lucky!!" :)
