how & where to search for sASQUATCH IN THE ADIRONDACKS
The Adirondack region is my stomping ground for Bigfoot! I grew up traveling to Lake George, Whitehall & nearby Vermont, turning my vacations into field research as I began my quest for this elusive creature. Although I have visited the West Coast, I still believe this East Coast region to be the Squatchiest place in the country. Come find out why by following my guide to Searching for Sasquatch in the Adirondacks!
WHERE TO STAY
CHAMBERLIN FARMS, COMSTOCK NY
When the Patterson-Gimlin film was captured in 1967, both men who witnessed the famous PG creature were riding horseback through Bluff Creek, California. When conducting Sasquatch research, it is essential to analyze conditions in which evidence was obtained. Therefore, a few nights stay at a rural farm in Squatch country is a great way to understand how large animals function, & how the scent of the horses may have concealed Roger & Bob on the day they captured the footage of a Sasquatch.
Chamberlin Farms is a Veteran owned & operated farm located in Comstock, NY, focused on training thoroughbred horses & raising beef cattle. Owners Tina & Todd are dedicated to training horses to race without any enhancers, & they are determined to raise their cattle in a way that stops land erosion & improves the health of their animals. These incredible hosts offer RV sites as well as a rustic cabin with incredible views of the mountains. There are hiking trails throughout the farm's neighboring wilderness & riding lessons if you're interested in experiencing what Roger & Bob did in Bluff Creek.

Pricing is as follows:
Travers House Cabin $125/night
RV Site $35/night
Lessons $50-70 depending on experience
LAKE BOMOSEEN LODGE & TAPROOM, BOMOSEEN VT
The NY/VT border has been the mecca for many Sasquatch reports. As researchers, it is crucial to spend time in the remote mountains of the Adirondack region. If you're not a camper or plan on traveling during winter months, Lake Bomoseen Lodge is the perfect stay for a Squatcher. This lodge features newly renovated motel lodges, condos & cottages to accommodate any group. The views from the motel are breathtaking during any season & the surrounding area is beautifully remote. The best part about this lodge? It's a short drive down route 4 from Whitehall NY, the Sasquatch capitol of NY, which means every time you leave the resort heading over to Whitehall, your chances of a Sasquatch road-cross sighting increase dramatically!

Pricing is as follows:
Avg Nightly Rate Lodge $180-$215
Avg Nightly Rate Cottage $350-$800

ADIRONDACK podcast EPISODES
Sasquatch is a 7-10’ tall, bipedal, hair-covered creature, witnessed by thousands across the U.S. This species is believed to have descended from a Paranthropus Hominin or a Gigantopithecus Ape species. In other words, when discovered, Sasquatch will likely be revealed as an indigenous human species or a highly-adapted great ape.
Sasquatch has been sighted throughout the Adirondacks for many years, starting with Native American Tribes. Iroquois-speaking tribes such as Seneca, Oneida & Mohawk all share the legend of the Stone Coat, a name given to a mythological rock-giant. Stone Coats are said to be twice as tall as humans, with bodies covered in rock-hard scales that repel all normal weapons. Since then, hundreds of reports have been collected ranging across New York State, particularly in the Adirondack region.

Keep an eye out along riverbanks where the creatures may have left footprints. Consider doing some “whoop” sounds or tree knocks (3 at a time) to elicit a response. This is how the Sasquatch species communicates. Please be respectful of these creatures & remember that we know very little about their behavior.
