Opened in 1973 and situated on a 25-acre peninsula in upstate New York’s Adirondack Mountains, Point O’Pines hosts Camp Michigania East. Just northeast of Lake George and about 30 miles from Fort Ticonderoga, Point O’Pines is located on Brant Lake, near Chestertown. The Point O’Pines Farm, a 500-acre property five miles from camp, provides campers with hiking, horseback and other recreational opportunities.
Michigania campers live in cabin units that are perfect for families and couples. Each unit offers privacy and has its own bathroom and shower. All units have electricity, blankets, pillows and storage space for clothing and equipment. Campers may bring their own towels and bedding, or they may be rented at camp for a nominal fee. Families with infants should bring their own cribs, high chairs, playpens and favorite toys.
Red clay and Har-Tru tennis courts await avid players, and free tennis instruction is provided for beginning through advanced players. All sport and boating equipment is furnished at camp, with the exception of tennis rackets and softball gloves (though there are some available). Campers may bring their own kayaks, canoes or sailboats.
Those so inclined can visit nearby out-of-camp attractions, including Fort Ticonderoga, Ausable Chasm, Lake Placid, and Saratoga Springs.
