Discover Amsterdam


The city of Amsterdam, New York, sits along the banks of the Mohawk River, and is about 30 miles northwest of the state capital of Albany. The first Europeans to inhabit the area were Dutch. However, after the American Revolutionary War, more and more English colonists moved to the area and eventually the city was renamed Amsterdam, in order to pay homage to the original settlers’ home country. After the construction of the Erie Canal, the city exploded as a result of the increase in trade and commerce. Today, Amsterdam does all it can to protect its history and historic buildings. With the city’s central location in Upstate New York, choosing to book an RV in Amsterdam will allow you to explore some of the most natural landscape in the entire northeast portion of the United States.

When you rent an RV in Amsterdam, you’ll be able to explore the capital of New York, the natural beauties of Upstate New York, and the city on the Mohawk River that continues to move to the beat of its own drum.

The Great Outdoors

Northwest of Amsterdam is the famed Adirondack Park. With roughly six million acres of forests and rolling mountains preserved in the form of a state park and forest preserve, Adirondack Park is also home to many towns and villages, making it a very unique place to spend time. Of the park’s expansive acreage, there are 3.4 million acres that are privately owned but still fall under the same protection. Within all of this land, visitors are able to hike the 46 peaks, canoe down the more than 30,000 miles of rivers, and enjoy some of the most beautiful fall foliage you’ll ever see, making the Adirondacks the natural jewel of Upstate New York.

To the northeast of Amsterdam sits the Moreau Lake State Park, which is located near Hudson Falls, New York. This lovely parcel of land sits along the banks of the Hudson River. You can spend the day on the sandy shores of Lake George or the Hudson, try your hand at fishing or kayaking, or go hiking through the park’s hardwood forests. If you’re traveling in the winter, Moreau Lake State Park is considered to be a prime spot for ice fishing and cross-country skiing.

Even though it is two hours to the south, when you book an RV rental in Amsterdam, be prepared to drive it to Minnewaska State Park Preserve, near New Paltz, New York. At home within the Shawangunk Mountain Ridge, the rugged terrain creates waterfalls, sky lakes, and dramatic geologic formations, unlike anything you’ve seen. On top of all of that, the park is blessed with a hardwood forest that stands tall and firm. You can also go scuba diving and explore ice caves. It won’t take long before you understand why so many American artists spent their summers staying near this wondrous piece of wilderness.

RV Parks

When you search for a motorhome rental in Amsterdam, you’re going to also have to search for places to sleep for the night in order to relax and recharge.

If you’re looking to stay near the cities, check out Arrowhead Marina & RV Park on the outskirts of nearby Schenectady. With electrical hookups, bathroom blocks, WiFi, and access to a boat slip, you’ll have everything you need.

If you’re looking for something a little quieter, just to the south of Amsterdam is the Frosty Acres Campground. Though they are not open year round, they offer plenty of amenities if you are traveling with the Amsterdam camper rental in the summer or fall. You can enjoy the bathroom and shower houses, laundry facilities, canoe, and paddleboat rentals, a video arcade, an on-site convenience store, and planned activities every week.

Explore the City

When you book an RV rental in Amsterdam, NY, be sure to set aside plenty of time to explore the city itself. There is so much to see in this historic town that you’ll forget all about Albany and Schenectady just next door.

If you want to learn more about this city on the Mohawk River, then spend time at the Walter Elwood Museum. The museum focuses on local history and does all that it can to preserve that history and educate visitors in the rich past of Amsterdam. You can learn about natural history, such as the fossils found in the region, and political history, such as the effects of the American Revolution.

Amsterdam has more than a dozen buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, ranging from factories to churches to the Amsterdam Castle, a former armory for the National Guard. You can go on a self-guided tour of these locations and get a better understanding of Amsterdam in its heyday.

When in Upstate New York, you’ll be remiss to not get a slice of tomato pie, which is sort of like a reverse pizza with the sauce on top of the cheese, or a plate of chicken riggies, which is rigatoni with chicken and peppers dressed with a tomato cream sauce. No matter what food you search for, be sure to treat yourself to some locally produced ice cream; the dairies in Upstate New York are some of the best.
