It is with great pleasure that the Baxter State Park Authority announces the appointment of its new Park Director, Kevin Adam.

In 2020 Baxter State Park successfully recruited Kevin to join the Park as a District Ranger Law Enforcement Ranger where he has assisted in managing seven campgrounds and supervised three full-time enforcement rangers and 20 seasonal staff. Kevin brings with him proven leadership skills and a thoughtful demeanor.

Kevin stated, “It is a tremendous honor to be named Director of Baxter State Park. Honoring Percival Baxter’s vision of a wilderness park comes with many challenges, especially in this modern age. I look forward to working with the Authority, the Park’s dedicated and skilled employees, and with the Park’s many supporters, to ensure the Park forever honors Baxter’s vision and the Deeds of Trust.”

Kevin’s proven commitment to Governor Percival Baxter’s vision will serve the Park well under his tenure.
