International Paper John Dillon Park

Under an endowment through International Paper, this unique park’s mission is to offer free camping for the disabled community and their friends and families.

Built to ADA standards in 2005, we offer an experience like no other. Each of our nine lean-tos are complete with ramps, wheel-chair accessible sleeping platforms, accessible toilets, picnic tables, ADA compliant fire pits with swing away grills, and even portable charging stations for a power chair or a CPAP device.

The park is managed and staffed by Paul Smith’s College. Our services include offering to help bring gear to your campsite, delivering free firewood, trash removal and even if you need help pitching a tent. Someone is always on call 24 hours a day.

Here at the park, we are committed to creating a safe welcoming environment where you can explore 3 ½ miles of hard packed trails, free of roots and rocks, gentle slopes and benches at regular intervals. Take a scenic ride around Grampus Lake on an accessible pontoon boat and don’t forget your fishing pole!

For many people with disabilities, a wilderness camping experience can be out of reach. The Park offers access to a place of solitude, seclusion and beauty. So come enjoy the freshest air you ever breathed, among trees that are 250 years old and witness the brightest stars east of the rockies!
