Whiteface Mountain Veterans Memorial Highway
After an eight mile climb on wheels, a short hike or a ride in the in-mountain elevator will bring you to some of the greatest views in the Adirondacks. 360 degree views allow you to revel in the beauty that surrounds us. Open from Mid May to October, this is a must on any travelers list when visiting the Adirondack Park.
Whiteface Mountain Gondola "Cloudsplitter" Rides
It's like a bird's eye viewin flight. The eight-person Cloudsplitter Gondola carries you and your family from the Main Base Lodge to the top of Little Whiteface. You'll see Lake Placid and its namesake village. To the east lies Lake Champlain. To the south stand the tallest peaks in New York State. You'll spot the ski jumps and the Ausable River. At the top, an observation deck and picnic area await you. These are some of the country's best views, and this is the best way to see them.
Step back in time as you walk nature trails in the midst of a primeval Adirondack Forest. Stroll past Rainbow Falls, Elephant's Head, Column Rock, Hyde's Cave and the eerie quiet of Mystic Gorge. Descend hundreds of feet to walk on natural stone walkways and gaze upon eons of geologic history etched in stone. Add a scenic raft ride and float the legendary waters of the Ausable River through a maze of breathtaking rock formations sculpted over thousands of years by the river's currents. Open since 1870, this is one of America's oldest attractions.
Our campground is located in New York States beautiful Adirondack Park and our KOA reflects the true beauty of the Adirondacks.

Whether you're a fly-fisher or a spin angler, a serious trout chaser or a novice who gets out once or twice a year, the Whiteface Region is for you. Here, trout bums mix with beginners, and while it's usually pretty easy to tell them apart once they begin casting, this is a place where everyone feels at home on the water. Success is a relative term, but most anglers walk off the water with a smile on their face. It's the kind of place so scenic you'd probably wet a line even if you knew there weren't any fish swimming out there.
