Looking for Summer/Fall Renters - Full weeks available in June-November. Ready to Rent near privately owned lake.

The "Big Camp" is a secluded camp located on Lake Francis property with access to a beautiful private lake near the Village of Indian Lake, a small town nestled in heart of the Adirondack's.

It is the perfect place to swim, fish, canoe, kayak, hike, and run. Its quiet setting lends itself to be a fantastic place to unplug, relax, and recharge.

The Big Camp is a large furnished homestead, with a lake view. It's located just a short walk (50 yards) from the lake. The large screened in porch is perfect for enjoying the lake view, eating meals and relaxing to the sounds of the Adirondacks. The exposed log walls, wooden beam ceilings, and hand build granite fire place, provide a rustic feel that is the ideal hideaway for nature lovers looking for complete solitude. Loons, white tail deer, wild turkey, beaver, frogs, turtles, bald eagle, and blue heron are common place. Moose have even been sighted on the property!

By foot, kayak, rowboat, or canoe, guests are encouraged to explore the lake's natural bays, coves, and islands. (Pictures on this site were taken early July 2014 on a Kayak trip around the lake). Catch and release fishing is another favorite activity here on Lake Francis, which is home to northern pike, large and small mouth bass, perch and bullhead (electric trolling motors only).

We hope you will choose to become part of a beautiful family tradition that spans nearly 100 years. Lake Francis is located off the main road by 1 and 1/3 miles from Route 28 near Indian Lake, NY.
