A public campground with 91 sites including 33 that will accommodate horses will be built on the site of a long-abandoned theme park in the eastern Adirondacks.
The Adirondack Park Agency approved the plan for the Frontier Town campground and day-use area at its monthly meeting Thursday. The plan was submitted by the state Department of Environmental Conservation and the town of North Hudson.
Plans for the site at Exit 29 of the Adirondack Northway include a caretaker's cabin, horse stalls, bathrooms, pavilions and water facilities. A seasonal day-use area with 34 parking spaces will be on the shoreline of the Schroon River.
It's projected to cost $13 million and employ two full-time year-round employees as well as 11 seasonal workers.
