Guided family trips


I was wondering if anyone knew of any good family guided trips in the Adirondacks in the summer. We're looking to go in august 2013, my kids will be 4.5 and 6.5 years. We're not great campers, and are looking for basically guided tour type things, which have cabins or set up tents and cook for you... We did something similar a while back with voyager quest in algonquin and loved being able to hike with someone who knew what they were doing, and then come back after a day of hiking and canoes to be able to eat well and sleep.

Hopefully someone else can help you with the guided portion.

In the Adirondacks, the ADK has two lodgings that provide food and shelter as you described: the ADK Loj, and John's Brook Lodge


FWIW, the White Mountains in New Hampshire have a much better hut system for families, IMHO.

The best Adirondak trip we ever took was when we couldn't find lodging at Lake Placid and I happened upon Blue Mountain Lodge. Amazing little find. Happy trails!
