Enjoy the spectacular fall foliage as you cruise aboard the W.W. Durant to Camp Pine Knot, where you’ll get an exclusive guided tour of 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 if you love Adirondack history, 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 board the W.W. Durant to enjoy a delicious luncheon while Captain Dean Pohl narrates 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 special 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. Save the date!
