Deer River Primitive Area

State Land Master Plan February 2014 Description

This area is a narrow, long river corridor located in the Towns of Duane and Santa Clara, Franklin County. It is bounded on the south by the Red Tavern Road (County Route 14) and private lands; the north by the Blue Line of the Adirondack Park; the northeast by Cole Road; and on the east and west by private lands. This river corridor is lined by low elevation boreal wetlands. Outstanding opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, hunting and fishing exist in this undeveloped natural area, but it lacks the necessary acreage for Wilderness classification. The portion of the Deer River flowing through this parcel is protected as a Scenic River under the Wild, Scenic and Recreational Rivers Act.

This area does not yet have an adopted Unit Management Plan.
