The Great Outdoors

Camp in an RV near Averill Park and spend a day exploring the Cherry Plain State Park, which centers around the scenic waters of Black River Pond. Soak up the sunshine on the lakeside beach and take a dip in the refreshing waters, with a children’s playground where young kids can run loose. Anglers can try their luck at luring bass, bullhead, and pickerel, or you can grab a boat at the rental store to get out on the water. If you prefer to stay dry, stretch your legs on the nine miles of hiking trails that wind around the pond while keeping your eyes peeled for white-tailed deer and moose.Trekkers who want to experience part of the legendary Appalachian Trail can travel across the border into neighboring Massachusetts to visit the Mount Greylock State Reservation. It’s named after the highest peak in the state, which rises to 3,489 feet and can be accessed on foot or along the road that connects with the summit. From the top of Mount Greylock, soak up the sweeping views across Massachusetts, Vermont, and New York, then pay your respects at the 93-foot-tall Veterans War Memorial. In addition to the 11.5-mile section of the Appalachian Trail, the reserve also boasts an additional 60 miles of hiking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing trails.Also in Massachusetts is the Wahconah Falls State Park, which is named after a picturesque cascade along the Wahconah Falls Brook. It’s framed by northern hardwood forests that provide an ideal place to relax while wading and swimming at the base of the waterfall. Wahconah Falls State Park is located adjacent to the Windsor Reservoir and just a stone’s throw from Cleveland Brook, a scenic green space on the edge of Dalton.

Exploring the Area

The campsites at Alps Family Campground are less than 10 minutes’ drive from Averill Park where you’ll find supermarkets for stocking up on grocery supplies. There are also gas stations here if you need to fill up your RV rental and a couple of restaurants for dining out. Alternatively, you can make the 30-minute drive into Albany where you’ll find a diverse range of eateries and all the services you need.Albany is home to plenty of museums to engage young and old, including the New York State Museum, which focuses on the region’s cultural and natural diversity. Admire the Hudson River School paintings on display at the Albany Institute of History and Art or join a guided tour of the USS Slater that’s moored on the Hudson River. Now designated as a U.S. National Historic Landmark, this Cannon-class destroyer escort is named after Frank O. Slater, a sailor who was killed during the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal.While visiting Albany, don’t miss a visit to the New York State Capitol whose Romanesque and Renaissance-style rooms can be explored on a guided tour. Another landmark to tick off your list is the iconic Egg Performing Arts Center, which forms part of the sprawling Empire State Plaza. Stroll along the walking trails that wind beside its reflecting pools or head to the picturesque gardens of Washington Park.Traveling with kids? Don’t miss a visit to the Children's Museum of Science and Technology, which is located in the city of Troy on the outskirts of Albany. It features a range of hands-on exhibits to inspire young minds, as well as a collection of living animals. Before leaving, browse the science and tech-themed gifts for sale at the museum store where you’ll also find a good collection of children’s toys.Whether you want to trek part of the Appalachian Trail or explore the sights of Albany, book an RV in Rensselaer County and start planning your next vacation.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
