The Northern Forest Institute will consist of 3 facilities located in the central Adirondack region of New York State.
- The Arbutus Great Camp will provide housing and intimate meeting spaces for small groups.
- The Carriage House will serve as a state-of-the-art conference facility with teleconferencing capabilities. This facility will pair the historical ambiance of the Adirondack great camps with the power of contemporary technology.

The NFI shares facilities and cooperates in many ways with ESF's The Adirondack Ecological Center.
