Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that reservations for the new Frontier Town Campground, Equestrian and Day Use Area in the Adirondacks are now open. Reservations can be made for this coming summer season – June 28 through Columbus Day weekend – and interested campers are encouraged to early since demand is expected to be high for the State’s newest campground.
The Department of Environmental Conservation-managed campground at the site of the former Frontier Town theme park was designed in collaboration with the Office of General Services and C.T. Male Associates. It includes 91 campsites to accommodate a range of camping and visitor experiences, including:
- An equestrian camping area with 33 sites modeled after the camping areas at DEC’s Otter Creek Horse Trail facility. The area includes electrical hookups and a pavilion;
- A recreational vehicle (RV) and trailer camping area with space for 13 sites with electrical hookups, fireplaces, and conveniently located water spigots. The RV area also includes a playground;
- A tent camping area with a total of 45 tent sites, including three group camping sites; three walk-in camping sites; four sites with electric vehicle charging stations; two shower buildings; a playground; and two pavilions;
- A seasonal day-use area along the shoreline of the Schroon River will be available to campers and visitors to enjoy a pavilion, two playgrounds, two electric vehicle charging stations, and a comfort station.
- Within the Frontier Town Campground, Equestrian and Day Use Area, a network of pedestrian trails will take visitors to four viewpoints: two along the Schroon River and two overlooking an oxbow wetland.
The campground, a signature project of Governor Cuomo’s Initiative, was designed to provide accessibility to people of all ages and abilities and includes many Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant features. The facility’s universal design enables everyone, including seniors and families with small children, to access all amenities consistent with the Governor’s 2018 to make New York the first age-friendly state in the country. All campsites, showers, and restrooms are accessible. All campsites are fully accessible including accessibly-designed picnic tables and fireplaces. In addition, the campground features two ADA-compliant horse mounting ramps.
