Frontier Town Campground, New York
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. 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. 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.
