Snow on the ground is never a reason to stay indoors, not when you can enjoy winter camping in Old Forge. Need an adventure or a quiet getaway?  A winter landscape offers campers solitude, inspiration, natural quiet, and a vast playground to explore winter adventures you never thought you could do.


Winter camping has several advantages over summer camping:


1.)  The Old Forge Camping resort has heated cabins and cottages to make winter camping even more enjoyable.


2.)  You can hike, snowshoe, snowmobile or ski across frozen tundras to directly access locations that might require lengthy hikes during other seasons. Old Forge Camping Resort offers direct access to Trail 5 and over 500 miles of groomed snowmobile trails.


3.)  You get a clear and open view of the landscape.  Bare trees provide unobstructed vista views making every adventure worth the hike or climb.


4.)  There is a satisfaction in learning new skills or enhancing/extending your current outdoor skills. Don’t own your own equipment? No Worries! Old Forge Sports Tours & RPM Snowmobile Rentals rent snowmobiles, Mountainman Outdoor rents Snowshoes & cross country skis and McCauley Mountain Ski Resort offers rentals on downhill skis.


5.)  Where else can you enjoy a warm cozy campfire outside your rental at the end of the day, cook, make smores or just listen to the quiet?


6.)  Winter camping provides solitude and a feeling of exploration.


7.)  Clear night skies offer a great star grazing opportunities for amateur astronomers.


8.)  Night time sounds carry easily giving you a chorus of coyotes, owls, trees snapping and ice cracking.


9.)  Winter camping provides a different perspective and appreciation of nature.


10.) And the best part? No Bugs!
