The Ponkapoag Camp of Appalachian Mountain Club is a camp of the Appalachian Mountain Club located on the eastern shore of Ponkapoag Pond in Randolph, Massachusetts.[2] The camp consists of a collection of 20 cabins, dispersed across a wooded area, that typically sleep 4-6 people. No electricity or potable water is available at the camp; untreated water may be taken from the pond. In the summer the camp also makes available a few tent sites for camping. The camp was established in 1921.[3]

Two of the camp's oldest surviving cabins were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
