Bluff Point on Tupper Lake

Adirondack Trail and Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30 and State Rt. 3, near Tupper Lake in Franklin County

Bluff Point is a piece of land extending into Tupper Lake proper, as well as a private camp and run much as it was over 100 years ago.

Bluff Point Great Camp was built by Francis Stott at the suggestion of Dr. Thomas C. Durant in the 1840s and sold to magazine publisher Robert Collier in 1905. Most of the original structures were then modified and expanded into the present score of buildings, noted for a huge walk-in fireplace, a bowling alley, the bridge to the gazebo, etc. Best access for limited water viewing would be from the DEC boat launch on Route 30 in the hamlet of Moody, 2 miles south of Village of Tupper Lake.
