Our Go To Glamping Recipes


Some people have the assumption that when you’re camping it’s all burgers and hot dogs over a grill, chasing it down with a can of baked beans. That’s true most of the time, unless you’re Glamping. At Orenda we believe in serving our guests nothing but the best ingredients straight from our heirloom garden and local purveyors to our back county kitchen. We give our guests the peace of mind to sit back and relax knowing they are going to be enjoying a tastefully prepared, open flame meal. Check out some more of our go-to glamping recipes below.

Rosemary Infused Center Cut Pork Chops

Our pork chops are prepared with a Rosemary infusion and grilled perfectly over an open flame. Top it off with our homemade Apple & Pear Chutney with a tasteful side of Asparagus with local Goat Cheese, shaved Almonds with a White Balsamic Basil Vinaigrette. It’s important to us to support our local Adirondack farmers to ensure that you always get the best that the region offers!

Blue Mountain Burger

For those Burger lovers we have created the right meal for you, our Blue Mountain Burger.  Blended with Blue Cheese topped with Apple Wood-Smoked Bacon served on a house baked brioche roll. Always served with our on site garden tomatoes, fresh greens and hand cut wedge fries. Our hearty meals are a perfect topping to end your day and recharge your soul before your next excursion into the Adirondacks.

Free Range Smoked Whole Chicken

One of our more popular dishes is our Free Range Smoked Whole Chicken which is frequently on the menu here at Orenda.  Included sides such as Skillet Roasted Scalloped Potatoes and a Garden Fresh Ceasar Salad and what you have is a healthy and filling meal to get you ready to enjoy the evenings festivities around the fire.  Because what’s camping without roasting a chicken over an open flame?

Always a big hit with our guests! Our Wood Fired Homemade Pizzas are some of the best in the Adirondacks.  With house made marinara and pesto spreads, topped with a wide variety of fresh ingredients from our mozzarella made with love to local sausage.  Nothing brings our guests together quite like our back country cuisine!

You will be waiting for the sound of the dinner bell!
