ACCOMMODATIONS

Echo Lake Camp's facilities consist of platform tents with canvas sides, equipped with cots, blankets, mattresses, and pillows for two to five people. The Camp also offers a full-service dining hall providing three meals a day, a library, a recreation hall with comfy chairs and fireplaces, flush toilets, and a shared bathhouse with hot showers. Tent platforms, bathhouse, and dining hall are accessible by wheelchair.

Activities include self-service options like hiking, canoeing/kayaking, sailing, and biking, as well as daily hikes led by experienced leaders, nature walks with the Camp's naturalist, and weekly lobster cookouts and clambakes. Evening programs range from square dancing to Bingo, and each week is concluded with a final Talent Night.

Because of its location and proximity to the lake, Echo Lake Camp is not suitable for children under the age of four or pets. Smoking is prohibited.
