Enjoy a quiet and secluded waterfront camp with the amenities of home minutes off the Northway.  While originally a farm, then a campground, the last 24 years this property has been a quiet vacation property for two families.  Original the owner built several small cabins and trailer that he would rent to supplement the farm and operated this compound from the '50's to the 80's as hunting and vacation camps.    In 1991, family and friends purchased the land and began building.  Today, there are two wonderful modern homes.  They haven't gotten to the cabins yet, as they are need of lot of repair.    The property is perfect for a growing family, entrepreneur, or a group wishing to subdivide and enjoy a peaceful and serene Adirondack lake experience.  Entrepreneurs would be wise to check this property out for off- grid cabin rentals, glamping or even mushroom growing (as one visitor mentioned for deep woods).


Johnson Pond is approximately 75% undeveloped and one can probably see 8 people on the water (kayaking or fishing) in a summer season.  You rarely will see an outboard motorboat.  The lake has good bass, pike, yellow perch and pan fishing.    We believe that there are only 12 other lots with cabins on the lake at this time.  The beavers and loons are the heavier population.


The property contains two (2) ~1200 sq. ft. modern homes built in 1993,  five (5) unimproved cabins and a small boathouse.  Both new homes have 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, kitchen, dining/family area,  loft foyer and wood stove for heating.  The property does not have grid power (none of the properties on the lake do) but generators are included.   Both new cabins have bulk propane hookups which are used to run hw heater, cooking range, refrigerator, lamps, and generator. The two improved cabins also have pressurized water tanks which can be filled via generator/pump from a spring on the property.  Don't let 'off griding' scare you, as it is an easy set up and cell signal can be obtained with a booster.  Each of the new cabins face west and every night you are treated to a spectacular sunset framed by the lake from the porch.


Amenities include:  1,800' of shoreline with docks and boat house, two septic systems, bulk propane.  Each home has identical layout with vaulted ceilings, cedar shakes, decks, skylights, DC power systems to run DC lights or small DC to AC inverter.  Two generators include, two dock locations, fire pit, spring (spring house replaced '12), gated.   And only five miles off I-87

Off Grid Amenities:  While off grid, the natural lighting from skylights, pressurized water tanks, and propane appliances (stove, hot water tank, refrigerator), will have you wondering what you were missing.  When needed the generators can be used to pump up the water tanks, vacuum, or run other appliances.  Still feeling cut off?  Other camps on the lake are able to get cell phone service with a roof mounted antenna, and the buyers can inquire as to which service and hardware they are using.

Note:  The Adirondack Park Agency has restrictions regarding building near waterfront.  Since these vintage structures predate the Adirondack Park Agency, a replacement structure is held to fewer restrictions than building in a new location.  All cabins on the property are tied together via a local underground electric grid which can be powered from the generator shed at the camp entrance, or from the 7000 watt generator adjacent to the main grey cabin.
