The Great Outdoors

Whether you are looking for water recreation or a place to explore the wonders of dry land, Natural Bridge / Watertown KOA camping is the way to go. Start by entering the magical world of the Thousand Islands and park your campervan rental at Wellesley Island State Park. On Wellesley Island in the St. Lawrence River, it is a haven for anglers, swimmers, and hikers. Boaters are in luck – there are a full-service marina and three boat launches. Minna Anthony Common Nature Center is one of the main attractions, encompassing wooded wetlands, rugged granite outcrops, and a museum. A nine-hole golf course is another place within the park where you can enjoy the great outdoors. Don’t forget to admire the one-of-a-kind scenery of countless small islands dotting the river slowly finding its way to Lake Ontario.The shores of Lake Ontario are home to many state parks protecting their beauties, and campers shouldn’t miss out on paying a visit to Selkirk Shores State Park. Fill your day with fun activities such as swimming, sunbathing, and fishing, and top it off by watching the sunset reflect on the lake sitting next to your rental RV. Anglers will also feel at home on the lake, while hikers and bikers can explore the network of trails meandering around it and through the rest of the park. Another interesting activity to take part in is birdwatching – the park is a stop for different species of migratory birds.If you want to experience the untamed side of the Adirondacks, pay a visit to the Independence River Wild Forest. Tens of lakes and ponds, rolling hills, and wetlands are some of the incredible natural features waiting for travelers in this oasis. Hiking, biking, and horseback riding are great ways to explore the forest, and you can also opt for paddling. Campers will find primitive campsites and a chance to completely disconnect from civilization. Winter is reserved for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. An abundance of wildlife will make your visit even more exciting, from black bears and white-tailed deer to bald eagles and wild turkeys.

Exploring the Area

When you rent a camper at Natural Bridge / Watertown KOA, you can take your time to discover both the natural and the urban attractions of the Empire State, and you are definitely in for a treat.If you don’t want to travel far, spend the day at nearby Watertown and pay a visit to Thompson Park Zoo and Conservancy. The zoo is home to both animals that are a common sight in nature such as turtles and black bears and those who are endangered, one of them being the Canada lynx. Follow the network of trails, and you will get to Olmsted Pond, hugged by wildflowers and the Butterfly House, full of different species of these gentle, colorful creatures.While camping with an RV in the Thousand Islands area, make sure to visit the magnificent Boldt Castle, perched on one of the islands. The construction began at the start of the 20th century under the orders of George Boldt, but was stopped after his wife’s death – the castle was abandoned for over 70 years. Today, it is both an architectural landmark and a window into the past century.Those who decide to visit Syracuse should find the time to explore the Erie Canal Museum. The Syracuse Weighlock Building houses the museum and dates back to the mid-19th century, making it an artifact in itself. In addition to the Frank Buchanan Thomson, a line boat replica, the museum has a rich collection of various objects including canal boat equipment, tools, and rare books.Motorhome camping in Upstate New York is your ticket to endless forests, vast lakes, and historical cities – combine them into one, and you will get a trip of a lifetime.

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.
