North Hudson, NY (October 4th, 2018)—The Open Space Institute joined with Governor Andrew Cuomo and State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, and partners in celebrating the completion of phase one of the Frontier Town Campground Equestrian and Day Use Area. The new public campground facility, located on the site of the former Frontier Town theme park in the town of North Hudson, was constructed after OSI completed early groundwork and planning, turning the project from an abstract idea into concrete plans.
The first phase includes creation of: 91 campsites to accommodate a range of camping experiences; an equestrian camping area; parking for all-season trail access; a seasonal day-use area along the shoreline of the Schroon River with parking spaces, a pavilion, two playgrounds, a comfort station; and electric vehicle charging stations.
"Congratulations to Governor Cuomo and Commissioner Seggos on the opening of the Frontier Town Campground. The Open Space Institute is proud to have helped jumpstart the campground design in keeping with our goals of improving public access, expanding recreational opportunities, and supporting local economies through this Gateway to the heart of the Adirondacks,” said Kim Elliman, OSI's president and CEO.
