New York hunting camp on large acres with stream and trails for sale. The Great Sacandaga Lake Deer Camp is a fantastic southern Adirondack property with a small hunting cabin, year-round creek, ATV trails, and plenty of wildlife and hunting opportunities.The 19 X 13-foot cabin (~260 square feet) offers a base camp from which to hunt and ride this 309-acre property. It is situated next to Min Allen Road, tucked into the woods at the western boundary of the southern tax parcel. The cabin has a generator hook-up for electrical power. It is in need of repairs and improvements, including a new roof and the addition of sanitary facilities.
Electric service is not available along the road frontage but is located ~750 ft. from the southeast corner of the property, at the intersection of Min Allen and Steve Kathan Rds. This portion of Min Allen Rd. is a seasonally-maintained town road. It serves as access to other private parcels nearby; there are deeded rights of way for adjacent parcels at the end of Min Allen Rd., just past the cabin.A well-maintained network of trails allows for easy and quick access to almost all of the property. The terrain is very favorable, generally rolling and slightly sloping, with minimal steep acreage. The steepest terrain is situated at the northern and southern boundaries, including steep slopes along Allentown Creek.
The 309 acres varies in vegetative cover, from mature trees and hemlock bedding areas to open canopy patches with abundant raspberry and blackberry, providing preferred browse and cover for deer, bear, and turkey.Nearly 4,000 feet of Allentown Creek pass through the property. Allentown Creek is a year-round watercourse, classified by NYS DEC as a trout stream. The creek varies in depth and width, depending on the season, with pools 1-2 feet deep and 5-15 feet in width. Tours of Allentown Creek prove the presence of fish of undetermined species as well as crayfish. There are many sites along Allentown Creek that would offer a suitable location for a cabin or home, capitalizing on the beauty of this watercourse.
The property shares a common boundary with a 45-acre parcel of State Forest Preserve, which allows for passive public recreation--hiking, hunting and camping, if permitted. To the south is a 596-acre parcel of timber investment lands with a conservation easement held by the State of NY. The easement prohibits future development of this tract, thereby keeping it forested in perpetuity. The Great Sacandaga Lake Deer Camp is located minutes from public boat launches on Great Sacandaga Lake and from the Hudson and Sacandaga Rivers, offering excellent fishing and whitewater rafting opportunities. It is less than 15 minutes from the Village of Lake Luzerne, where the necessities can be had, and under 45 minutes from Saratoga Springs, just over an hour from Albany, and ~3.5 hours from NYC.
