I'm not nearly as intimately familiar with this area as you are, but most of the Adirondack dome is pretty void of oaks.

Where are these "groves" and what species of oak are they?

Apparently there are pockets of oak here or there around the park, but for the most part they just don't grow as well as other hardwood species in this environment. I've actually seen very few myself, but I don't necessarily go looking. The tell-tale for me is finding acorns, which I almost never see.
