A 31-acre lakefront plot in upstate New York, which was for decades the home of a sleepaway camp run by the Girl Scouts of New Jersey, is on sale for $3.75 million (via Hodinkee).The campsite, known as Camp Eagle Island, sits on the shore of Upper Saranac Lake and is listed as having 10 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.

The site has a storied history.

It was originally built for New York Governor and United States Vice President Levi Morton, and was later purchased by banker (and famed watch collector) Henry Graves.

Graves eventually donated the entire island to the Girl Scouts, who ran it as a summer retreat from 1938 until 2009, when it abruptly closed, according to Hodkinee.

A group of former campers is reportedly trying to raise funds to purchase the property and reopen the camp, so if owning an old Girl Scout camp is on your bucket list, don’t wait to put in an offer.

Eagle Island sits squarely in Upper Saranac Lake

Incredible views from every angle

The island is 31 acres

And has several Adirondack-style buildings

The main lodge is 47,153 square feet

It has 10 bedrooms that can fit lots of bunk beds

And 14 bathrooms

The camp had a capacity of 140 campers

It was designed and built by noted Adirondack architect William L. Coulter

The site is designated as a U.S. national historic landmark

The dining hall and several other buildings still stand

We can't imaging how the Girl Scouts felt about all the mounted antlers

Lots of campy touches, like this brick fireplace

And this stone fireplace

And cozy rocking chairs

The decor could stand to be refreshed

Hope you like wood paneling
