$25 Million Public/Private Investments Committed To-Date Will Establish 'Gateway to the Adirondacks' Tourism Hub; Revitalization of Former Theme Park Will Bolster Local Economy and Link Recreational Opportunities in the Adirondacks

April 11, 2018

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the groundbreaking of the Frontier Town Campground, Equestrian and Day Use Area and a new brewing facility for Paradox Brewery. The new, public campground facility, located at the site of the former Frontier Town theme park in the town of North Hudson, is a signature project of the Governor's "Gateway to the Adirondacks" tourism hub and part of the State's Adventure NY initiative to enhance access to state lands and connect New Yorkers to nature and the outdoors. An estimated $25 million in public/private resources have been committed to the project to date.   

"This development will create a unique, world-class campground for New Yorkers and visitors alike to enjoy," Governor Cuomo said. "This Gateway to the Adirondacks will serve as a central point for all of the area's recreations, significantly benefitting the local community and the region's tourism industry." 

The plans for the campground were conceived in the Upper Hudson Recreation Hub Master Plan to establish a Gateway to the Adirondacks that will link local and regional outdoor recreation experiences in the Adirondack Park, bolster tourism, and strengthen the North Country's regional economy.
