Adirondack Park and Preserve- Palmer Pond

A very special  place near Chestertown New York is Palmer Pond.  What makes it special you ask?  Well, the Department of Conservation has made a concerted effort to make much of Palmer Pond accessible for people with disabilities.  A specialized fishing area has been built (it’s behind me in this photo, I’m standing in the pond) and special camping areas have been built as well which feature a unique style of outhouse which is accessible for someone using a modified ATV.  While more work is needed in the future, the DEC and many other land management agencies have been making efforts to improve accessibility for those of us with disabilities.

Palmer Pond, in northern Warren County New York is part of the Adirondack Park and Preserve, one of the largest areas of preserved land in the United States. This location has been made accessible for those with physical disabilities who want to visit the pond.

If you have a disability and are interested in accessing Palmer Pond or any of the other accessible areas in the Lake George Wild Forest check out this DEC website to learn how to go about getting a permit.  NOTE, your handicapped tags for your personal vehicle are not the same sort of access.  http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/53165.html
