International Paper John Dillon Park

The mission of International Paper-John Dillon Park is to provide a barrier free wilderness camping experience while making the natural landscape of the Adirondacks accessible to all, regardless of ability.  According to the US Census Bureau there are 40 million Americans living with a disability and very few parks cater to this demographic. Opened in the Spring of 2006, IP-JDP has served over 25,000 visitors for both day use and overnight camping activities. We are proud to offer an age and ability friendly destination. 

The Park offers over 3 miles of trails, 9 fully accessible lean-to camping structures, tent camping, viewing decks, canoe/kayak launch and pontoon boat excursions for site seeing and fishing.  The Welcome Center has running water 24 hours a day and when open sanitary facilities are fully accessible.  The park is completely off grid and is serviced by solar panels and propane; staff is available 24 hours a day. 

Through a partnership with International Paper, Paul Smiths College staffs and operates the park between the months of June and August.  Internships are offered for students as the park is an important educational tool for both the recreation and forestry curriculum of the college.

THE PARK IS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON
