Binghamton is one of the larger cities in Upstate New York’s Southern Tier region, which encompasses just about everything south of the Finger Lakes region and west of the Catskill Mountains. It’s only a few hours' drive from New York’s capital, Albany, and America’s largest urban area, New York City. Fortunately, when you book an RV in Binghamton, you'll feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple; its picturesque streets and homey cafes are quintessential small-town living.
In August of every year, the skies fill with hot air balloons as part of one of the most interesting events of the Spiedie Festival - a weekend celebrating the regional sandwich of marinated meats. While this is the most popular time of year to visit Binghamton, the town offers plenty of interesting cultural attractions and outdoor adventure opportunities during the rest of the year too.
The surrounding hills are a veritable playground for outdoor enthusiasts who get a camper rental in Binghamton. Not only are there dozens of hiking and biking trails nearby, but also the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers provide endless opportunities for kayaking, fishing, or just lazily floating in an inner tube.
The Vestal Rail Trail a short distance to the west of town is one of the more popular places to do some cycling or take a relaxing stroll. The path follows a four-mile-long abandoned railway line in the little town of Vestal. It ends at the Town Square Mall, giving you the option of doing some shopping before heading back to the trailhead.
Just south of Binghamton is the Aqua-Terra Wilderness Area, which has some of the best hiking trails in the Southern Tier. The wilderness is centered on a six-acre pond that is quite popular with anglers (be sure to get a NY fishing license if you’re going to make use of it). Several trails surround the lake and are just short enough to be excellent day hikes.
To get out on the water though, look into renting a kayak or canoe from one of the sporting goods stores in Binghamton. There are quite a few launch points on both of the nearby rivers, so decide on your mileage, plot a course, and be sure you have a way to get picked up at the take-out point.
Binghamton’s location at the confluence of the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers makes it an excellent place to set up camp when you rent an RV there. Fortunately, there are several great RV parks to make use of when you get a motorhome rental in Binghamton. Pine Valley RV Park and Campground is one of the parks in the area and offers full hookups, laundry facilities, hot showers, a playground, boat rentals, a dump station, and a large network of hiking trails to explore. The camp staff frequently plan events, making this one of the better places to stay if you’re traveling with the family or just want to meet fellow RV campers.
Another option is Lakeside Campground just outside of Windsor. Their sites also have full hookups and on-site, there are boat rentals and a playground. Swimming and boating in the adjacent lake are some of the best ways to cool off on a hot summer day.
There’s also Pine Crest Campground, which is also located fairly close to Windsor and on the banks of the Susquehanna River. Many of their sites have full hookups, and you’ll have access to laundry facilities, a fishing pond, a playground, and a camp store for picking up essential supplies. The park promotes itself as catering to outdoor adventure lovers so be sure to bring your bicycles and kayaks to enjoy all that the park has to offer.
There are a wealth of fantastic attractions to enjoy when you choose a travel trailer rental in Binghamton, but one of the best is the Roberson Museum and Science Center. This Gilded Age mansion houses an excellent planetarium along with exhibits covering a wide range of topics like nature photography and Native American culture, in addition to a massive model train room.
If you or anyone in your family loves animals, you’ll surely want to spend an afternoon at the Binghamton Zoo. It’s one of the oldest zoos in America and is home to nearly 200 species of animals including red pandas, howler monkeys, and penguins. In addition to its diverse wildlife, the park has a roller coaster, miniature train, and carousel to enjoy.
Those bringing the kids along when getting an RV rental in Binghamton will want to stop at the Discovery Center adjacent to the city zoo. It’s a fantastic children’s museum where the little ones can interact with all of the exhibits and do some hands-on learning. The center’s Storybook Garden is one of the best places to snap some pictures in town too, with dozens of colorful sculptures perfect for family photo ops.
