Great place for outstanding hiking and canoeing. Evening presentations were varied, some more interesting than others. Canoe and hiking guides were great, historical tour was weak. Food was not the best I have had, but it was plentiful and salad was awesome.This is not a trip for people with limited physical capabilities. I am not in shape, but managed to keep up, though the hike took the starch out of me. There were others who decided not to participate in some of the activities, as they were too strenuous. It was a smart decision, and they were inappropriate activities for the physical level of these individuals.

Great Camp Sagamore is a wonderful place for a great time of paddling and hiking. The boat house is only a few steps from the lodge. In several minutes you can be on the mirrored surface of Lake Sagamore for an early morning paddle with the loon calling.
