This afternoon outing provides an extremely rare opportunity to see one of the most historically private and now one of the most exclusive camps in the Adirondacks – Lake Kora, historically known as Kamp Kill Kare. Situated along the northernmost shoreline of Lake Kora and at the terminus of a long and winding road which originates near the hamlet of Raquette Lake, the property includes a variety of residential and recreational structures in an exceptionally remote region. The camp was initially built for Timothy Woodruff, Lieutenant Governor to Theodore Roosevelt, on a parcel he purchased from William West Durant in 1897. Throughout the first several years of the 20th century, Woodruff remodeled and added onto the small camp that existed when he first acquired the property, eventually creating a sprawling complex of impressive buildings in a stunning natural setting of woods and lakes.
The property is one of the few Great Camps which has remained in private ownership and is actually available for a limited number of rentals during the summer season (www.lakekora.com). Our time at Lake Kora will begin with a tour of the property and structures by general manager Dan Abrashoff, followed by substantial hors d’oeuvres and desserts with drinks.
The outing begins at 3 p.m. and ends around 6:30 p.m.
