Campers can now reserve sites at New York’s new Frontier Town state campground in the eastern Adirondacks.
The new Adirondacks campground is part of a new “Gateway to the Adirondacks” at Exit 29 of the Northway in the town of North Hudson. Its 91 sites include 33 campsites for horseback riders, an RV area and 45 tent sites.
The site was a Wild West theme park called Frontier Town for more than 40 years until it closed in the 1990s. The state is spending nearly $20 million bringing it back to life.
Reservations can be made online through the ReserveAmerica system.
About Frontier Town State Campground
Frontier Town Campground, Equestrian and Day Use Area is located on 91 acres on the shores of the Schroon River. This public campground is a key component of a Master Plan to establish a Gateway to the Adirondacks at Exit 29 of the Northway, in the town of North Hudson, announced by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in January 2017. Located in the heart of the Adirondacks, the Gateway site once hosted the Frontier Town theme park. For more than 40 years, Frontier Town, a Wild West theme park, was a destination for families from across the country. Visitors traveled back into living history visiting the hearths and homes of a pioneer village, enjoying a rodeo and finding themselves in the midst of a hold-up by outlaws on horseback. New York State and the Open Space Institute, working in collaboration with five neighboring Adirondack towns, created a blueprint for a new recreation hub that would improve local amenities, expand access, and draw increased visitors to this part of the Park. DEC will operate the facility according to the terms of a conservation easement.
Accessible trail throughout the facility. Equestrian trail within facility. Hiking, biking and equestrian trails are nearby, and the park has picnic areas and playgrounds, including area along the shore of the Schroon River.
The current campground consists of; 91 campsites (equestrian, RV/trailer, tent and group sites) some with electric hookups or EV charging stations), hot showers, flush toilets, picnic areas, picnic pavilions, playgrounds, and trailer dump station.
