AdirondAck region Adirondack Region The Adirondack Park is a vast natural park (6 million acres, or two-and-a-half times the size of Yellowstone National Park) with immense, untouched forests heaved by rugged mountain ranges mirrored in thousands of lakes and ponds. The 2.7 million acre system of state-owned lands, known as the Adirondack Forest Preserve, has been officially designated “forever wild” and is largely undisturbed by human activity. The Adirondacks offer visitors spectacular views and long, peaceful waterways. The 46 High Peaks in the Park’s northeast mountain range have the state’s highest vantage points (over 4,000 feet). Most of the major highways that serpentine through the Park’s magnificent landscape have been officially designated as Scenic Byways. Over 70 native tree species; 55 species of mammals - such as the fisher, American marten, white-tailed deer, and black bear; 218 different birds including the American bald eagle and the common loon; plus 86 species of fish reside in the Adirondacks. 6 www.dec-campgrounds.com | http://newyorkstateparks.reserveamerica.com/camping/Cranberry_Lake_Campground/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NY&parkId=706&topTabIndex=CampingSpot http://www.dec-campgrounds.com
