ADK Winter Outing Accommodations

Accommodations are at the Mad River Club, located five miles east of Interstate 81 via the Sandy Creek/Lacona exit. The exit off of I-81 is forty miles north of Syracuse and thirty-five miles south of Watertown. The Mad River Club is a rustic yet comfortable building with a large basement. There is indoor plumbing (one women’s bathroom, one shower, and one men’s bathroom), electricity, and wood-stove heat. Sleeping will be on the floor (which can get very cold). You will need to bring a sleeping bag and pad or small cot. If you prefer privacy, a soft bed, and your own shower, we encourage you to stay in alternate lodging nearby and attend all the daily activities and meals.
