For Largely Empty Interior Zones Declared ADK State Park

Largely Empty Interior Zones Declared ADK State Park

The State Legislature votes to put largely uninhabited interior sections of the Park into a formal Adirondack State Park structure, eliminating town and county government activity in the region which includes Hamilton County. Small private in-holdings remain but there are no local government services. It will be run by the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. Like most NYS Parks, it charges a user fee per vehicle day and additional fees for amenities like campsites.
