Camp Marion

Lean-tos, reservations ongoing

Two lean-tos or open camps are available to SUNY Cortland alumni, faculty/staff, guests and students by reservation. The lean-tos are accessible by water/ice only and are approximately a two-mile paddle/hike from Antlers. Canoes may be rented from Antlers for $25 per day with prior notice. There is no fee associated with the reservation and use of the Camp Marion lean-tos; however, they must be reserved to ensure the lean-to you are hoping to use is available.
