The Adirondack Mountain Club's Wilderness Campground offers a variety of primitive camping opportunities. The seasonal washhouse is available during the spring, summer, and fall; this facility has men and women's washrooms with showers, toilets, and sinks. During the winter months guests are able to use the facilities in the High Peaks Information Center. All food must be stored inside a vehicle to avoid attracting wildlife. Firewood must be purchased on site to prevent the spread of invasive species.

Protect Our Forests from Insect Invaders
Transporting untreated firewood spreads diseases from insect invaders that kill trees. State regulation prohibits the import of firewood into New York unless it has been kiln dried. The regulation also limits the transportation of untreated firewood to less than 50 miles from its source. Local firewood is available for sale at ADK's Wilderness Campground.
