Huts and Campground

Keene Hut, Cabin and Campground in the Adirondacks

Keene Hut is located within the Adirondack Forest Reserve near Keene in northern New York State, USA, 160 km from Montreal, approximately 60 km southwest of the city of Plattsburgh. This 105 acre property of meadow and woodland provides both camping facilities and a large cabin that accommodates up to 32 people.

The two-story log cabin, situated on a small pine knoll overlooking the Ausable Valley, is open year-round, with wood stoves for heating and propane gas for cooking and illumination. There is an entry and front porch, a large fully equipped kitchen, an eating/sitting area and two large sleeping rooms upstairs with foam mattresses.

The meadow is suitable for camping with picnic tables and a central fire pit. Nearby there is a large open-sided shelter for cooking, eating, or escaping from inclement weather.
