Take an exclusive guided tour of Camp Pine Knot, the first Great Camp built by William West Durant and the birthplace of his Great Camps style of architecture. Pine Knot is not normally open to the public, so it’s a special treat to walk the pathways and enter the buildings where railroad magnate Collis P. Huntington wined and dined his fellow captains of industry in the late 19th century. After touring Pine Knot, you’ll take a fifteen-minute walk to St. Williams on Long Point, a Catholic church built by Durant in 1890. Afterward, you’ll board the W.W. Durant to enjoy a delicious buffet-style lunch and cruise. Captain Dean Pohl will narrate as you cruise by other Great Camps, including the Collier publishing family’s wilderness estate at Bluff Point, and the Carnegie estate at North Point. This event takes place rain or shine so please dress accordingly, and be sure to wear sturdy shoes for walking on uneven ground and gravel paths. For reservations, call Raquette Lake Navigation at 315-354-5532.
