Upstate NY Camp

Hello Campers, Parents, and all future Lakota Families. Upstate NY Camp, sits high atop the Wurtsboro Hills in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. We are situated on 200 of the most beautiful acres of land. Our magnificent Masten Lake with its sandy beaches and diverse waterfront sports has helped make Lakota a family tradition for 90 years. We are the best Upstate NY Camp in the Catskills Mountains

Founded in 1924, and built on the grounds of an historic Sullivan County Estate and Hotel, Camp Lakota has been under continuous family ownership since its beginnings. Indeed, Camp Lakota has always been about family, and has been providing nurturing, safe, and exciting summers for co-ed campers for over 90 years. Make sure to check out our about us page to learn more about our Camp in the Catskills


Since purchasing the camp in 1985, The Mindich Family, our dedicated owners, have had the privilege of caring for your children for over three decades, and continue to promote traditional values in summer camping.

Upstate NY Camp

Our campus radiates out from the original estate mansion that was built in the early 1900’s. We now use this building as our Arts & Crafts center. We also offer a comprehensive Theater and Music program at camp, producing shows and concerts throughout the summer. Call today to learn more about the Camp in the Catskills.
