FORT ANN — A large new campground along Route 149 may be a reality after all, after plans to build the Chocolate Moose Campground fell through.
The Fort Ann site where the Chocolate Moose Campground was proposed has changed hands, and its new owners are planning to open the Moose Hillock Campground at that site in 2014.
Joe Paradis, of Moose Hillock Campground in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, said his parents’ campground business has “grown tremendously,” and they decided to open a second campground in the Adirondacks.
“We had been looking at property for a long time, and my parents decided to open a new place in the Adirondacks. It’s a beautiful place over that way,” Paradis said. “Camping is our life. It’s what we do best.”
Work is already under way at the site to clear the recreation, playground areas and the campsites. The Fort Ann site will be called Moose Hillock Campground – NY, and Paradis’ brother, Ed Jr., will help develop and manage that site, Joe Paradis said.
