A rustic traditional hunting and fishing club, the Inner Gooley Club rests on the shores of Third Lake nestled in the heart of the Essex Chain of Lakes. One of the oldest extant clubs in the Adirondacks, the club is in danger of being dismantled once it passes into state ownership in 2018. Recent efforts by AARCH and Club members have shone a light on the importance of preserving the National Register-eligible Club complex in their surrounding landscape.
The day will start with a tour of the property by Donald MacElroy, a Gooley Club member. A barbeque lunch will follow, prepared by camp staff. The afternoon will include time to relax, fish, canoe, and explore the property and its scenic setting on the lake.
The tour begins at 10 a.m. and ends around 4 p.m.
FEE: $40 for members and $50 for non-members. $20 for children under 18. Lunch is included.
