Area Activities

Our location in the heart of the Adirondack Park will allow you to experience the absolute best the Park has to offer.

Whether you want to hike to a mountain peak, float on a scenic river, visit the Olympic sites, tour an Adirondack Great Camp or view the fall foliage, you can do it all from Coccia Pines.

Without leaving the property you can swim, sail, fish, canoe, kayak, water-ski, or just relax on the porch or dock.

The Wild Center

Visit the Natural History Museum of the Adirondack's. The Wild Center is a museum where the wild world of the Adirondacks opens before your eyes. Take a tour, dive into our living exhibits, and find out how you can join for the opening year. Now you can be among the first to enjoy this engaging new center of an amazing world. Located minutes from Coccia Pines Camp, Tupper Lake, NY.

The award-winning Center houses live exhibits and multi-media shows. This year we feature Planet Adirondack, a new show with a giant floating Earth where you can see the planet come alive, and Flight of the Butterflies, an award-winning film that follows an amazing winged migration.

You can explore the 31-acre campus with free snowshoes using marked trails. Inside there are plenty of hands-on activities and hundreds of live animals from rare native trout, to porcupines, hawks, and many other often hard-to-see residents of the woods and waters.

"Tupper Lake is one big launch ramp for the Ten Rivers Recreational Area, where you can hike 3,352-foot Ampersand Mountain, fish for trout on the slow-flowing Raquette River, or shoot Class V rapids in the Hudson River Gorge -- and be surrounded by all the beauty you could ask for."

GOLFING

The Adirondack Park is home to many wonderful golf courses. Our favorite golf course, just a mile up the mountain, the Tupper Lake Country Club features an 18 hole Donald Ross designed course built in 1932. The course is well-maintained, open to the public and very reasonably priced. Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, Inlet and Old Forge also feature excellent courses and make for easy day trips.

EVENTS IN TUPPER LAKE

Tupper Lake offers several events and attractions throughout the summer including: The Tupper Lake Regatta, The Woodsmen's Days, Tinman Triathlon, Thunder Over Tupper Lake.

And Tupper Lake is on the move! In the Summer of 2006, the Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks opened in Tupper Lake. It promises to be a first rate attraction. Tupper Lakers are also working hard to rebuild the local train station for service by the Adirondack Railroad and a public observatory.

To find out more about the Town of Tupper Lake and all of its events visit the Chamber of Commerce.

CANOEING & KAYKING IN THE AREA

There are a few places to rent canoes & kayaks on Tupper Lake itself. From our dock you have immediate access to over 30 miles of contiguous waterways on Big Tupper Lake, the Raquette River, Simond Pond and Raquette Pond. You may also moor your motorboat at the camp (rentals are available on the lake) for fishing, waterskiing or cruising.

Coccia Pines is located in the heart of the Adirondack State Park's Ten Rivers Region. Needless to say, the area offers some of the best canoeing and kayaking opportunities in the Park. Racquette River Outfitters, just a mile down the road, can outfit and transport you for longer trips on the nearby Raquette River or on numerous lakes (including beautiful Little Tupper Lake) just minutes from the camp.

Did You Know? The Adirondack Park contains the headwaters for five major basins: Lake Champlain and the Hudson, Black, St. Lawrence and Mohawk rivers. Within the park are 3,000 lakes and ponds and 30,000 miles of rivers streams and brooks.

HIKING IN THE AREA

Several Mountain peaks and wilderness lakes can be hiked within short drives of the camp. We can recommend several of our favorites including: a walk to the beach on Middle Saranac Lake, the peak of Coney Mountain at the southern end of Tupper Lake and, our favorite, the firetower on Mt. Arab (just on the other side of the Village of Tupper Lake). For the more ambitious there is the High Peaks Wilderness Area within easy driving distance (only 16 miles by car) for day or overnight adventures.
