Frontier Town is one of the newest attractions in the Adirondacks! It is located on 91 acres on the shores of the scenic Schroon River and was once home of the Frontier Town theme park. Until the park closed it's doors, Frontier Town was a Wild West theme park where families from around the country could ramble through a pioneer village, watch a rodeo, and maybe even witness an outlaw or two riding through town! Today, with that theme in mind, Frontier Town has reopened as a hub of horseback riding and camping in the heart of the Adirondacks.
How to get there
Take Exit 29 off of the Northway. Make a right onto Blue Ridge Road, then make another right onto Route 9 South. Turn right onto Frontier Town Road and continue to the campground entrance.
Frontier Town has tent, RV and trailer, and equestrian camping. The campground also features a seasonal day-use area with a pavilion, playgrounds, electric vehicle charging stations and a comfort station, as well as pedestrian trails, facilities and picnic/fireplace areas that are ADA-compliant.
Forty five tent camping sites, including three group-camping sites, are near two shower buildings. Each tent site has parking for two vehicles, a fireplace, and 12-by-12-foot tent pad. Tent sites are not serviced by electrical power.
Thirteen RV and trailer camping sites include electrical hookups, fireplaces, and conveniently located water spigots. There is one shower building in this area.
Thirty three equestrian camping sites each have an electrical hookup, hibachi-style grill, two tie stall, and water spigots within 250 feet of the campsite.
Thirteen horse tie stalls are located next to the camping pads with a capacity to hold up to five horses, and one stud stall provides the capacity for up to 66 horses. Several trails for horseback riding are near, or on, the property.
Enjoy a network of campground trails which take visitors to lovely views for exploration and photography. With or without horses.
There are two outlooks along the Schroon River which feature an oxbow wetland.
Soon, the campground trails will connect to the existing trail network across NYS Route 9. This will allow access to part of the Schroon Lake-North Hudson Snowmobile trail network. This is known as the "To to Co Line Trail," and will provide connectivity to the Hammond Pond Wild Forest to the east and the Palmer Pond Bridge connection on the west. Then, trails will lead to the Boreas Ponds Tract and Essex Chain Lakes Complex.
