frontier town state campgroundReservations for the new Frontier Town Campground, Equestrian and Day Use Area in the Adirondacks began on March 1st.

The DEC-managed campground at the site of the former Frontier Town theme park 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 takes visitors to four viewpoints: two along the Schroon River and two overlooking an oxbow wetland.

Campers can make reservations for this coming summer season – June 28 through Columbus Day weekend – and are encouraged to book campsites early.

    Don’t bother going there now–the only thing you are allowed to do is snowmobile. You can not walk on the trails as they are narrow chutes with high snow banks and the work areas are posted against entry. However the brewery is coming along famously. Evelyn

    Sounds more like a HORSE retreat than a campground…
