Discover Syracuse, NY

Named for Siracusa, a city in Italy sharing similar rolling hills sloping into the water, Syracuse, NY, is one of the best places to rent an RV. The city lies at the crossroads of I-81 and I-90 between Rochester and the state capital, Albany. The city’s historical importance stems from its strategic location close to the canals and railways that prove crucial for transportation of goods. Once known as the “Salt City” for its salty natural springs next to Onondaga Lake, Syracuse developed a reputation for producing high-quality salt which spurred its industrial growth throughout its history. Businesses headed to Syracuse in droves to set up shop over the last 100 years to capitalize on the city’s central location within one of the most affluent states in the country.

These days, Syracuse is a modern city consistently referred to as one of the best places to raise a family. The city practically oozes charm and serves as a cultural hub for both Onondaga County and central New York as a whole. Syracuse University is one of the finest educational institutions in the world, helping to bring an open-minded and intelligent spirit to the city. Wonderful cafes and restaurants can be found everywhere, offering foods from many different cultures, including the extraordinary Italian cuisine that upstate New York is known for. Between the museums and concert halls, or the majestic forests and lakes outside the city, opting to search for an RV in Syracuse, New York is a wise choice.

Experience the Sites and Scenery

Upstate New York is known for its outstanding natural beauty. Humid summers give way to splendid fiery autumn foliage and epic winters with massive amounts of snow. Syracuse itself is a beautiful city said to have upwards of 900,000 trees of all different types, covering over a quarter of the total land in Syracuse. This lush, outdoorsy city is extremely nature-friendly, with bicycle commuter lanes and walking paths everywhere you look. Over 50 parks and recreation areas grace the city with grassy shaded picnic areas, natural trails along creeks and waterways, sports fields and courts, and municipal swimming pools. Thornden Park in central Syracuse is known for its sports facilities, in-ground pool, and its lovely rose garden were weddings are commonly held. Upper and Lower Onondaga Park are both excellent places to read a book on the park benches overlooking the water, or even take a nap beneath the trees.

Booking a Syracuse camper rental enables travelers to leave the city in search of more peaceful surroundings and a deeper connection with the natural beauty of New York. Oneida Lake, to the north, has lots of nice places to visit when you rent an RV in Syracuse, too, like Verona Beach State Park, which sits on the lake’s picturesque shores. Verona Beach has miles of winding trails that dip and weave through the forest, culminating upon several miles of sandy beach where swimmers flock to the water and enjoy the refreshing Oneida Lake. Camping is encouraged here from spring until mid-fall each year.

Numerous state forests can be found by driving your Syracuse RV rental south, like Mariposa State Forest, Muller Hill State Forest, or Bucks Brook State Forest. Morgan Hill State Forest is a sizable collection of native trees and plants that decorate the edges of the extensive trail network that permeates the park as part of the Finger Lakes Trail. The Finger Lakes Trail extends nearly six hundred miles from the southwest corner of the state to the Catskill Forest Preserve in Eastern New York. The Catskill Forest Preserve can be found by heading southeast to New York City; the sprawling forest covers sections of the breathtaking Catskill Mountains of eastern New York State.

Southwick Beach State Park, Fair Haven Beach State Park, and Chimney Bluffs State Park are all fantastic options if you want to bring your Syracuse motorhome rental to the edges of Lake Ontario, one of the massive Great Lakes. These parks are perfect in summertime, with towering bluffs overlooking the lake, and pleasant beaches where camping is an option.

City Attractions

Syracuse has a reputation for being a cultured city with a prestigious university, and it is quite evident once you rent an RV and take a visit. The Central New York Regional Market, City Market, and Destiny USA Shopping Mall are all ideal if you hope to get some shopping done on vacation. Many locally made souvenirs can be found at the antique flea markets in the city.

The Landmark Theatre and the Palace Theatre are iconic music and theatrical venues known for their productions and concerts. Both are historical landmarks having been built nearly 100 years ago with old time architectural prowess. Clinton Square ties the city together at its center focal point, with awesome monuments and statues decorating the open space beside the downtown area. The Everson Museum of Art is great for all lovers of visual art, with thousands of ceramic masterpieces on display. Rosamond Gifford Zoo has a menagerie of wild animals, on display being rehabilitated and studied for preservation purposes. Finally, the Great New York State Fair takes place each year in town so there is truly no better time or place to visit when you book a rental RV in Syracuse.

Green Lakes State Park

campground Fayetteville, NY
As with most state parks, the RV sites at Green Lakes State Park in Syracuse, New York, are spacious enough to maneuver your big rig into position without too much fuss and, as the name suggests, there are two uniquely colored clear green lakes at the park which are great for fishing and swimming. The park is far enough from the city to give you a beautiful starry nights-cape if you happen to be there in good weather, but also close enough to Syracuse to allow easy access to amenities. Being situated on the country side of town, there are fantastic hiking and biking trails right on the doorstep, as well as a golf course nestled between the green lakes. The graveled RV sites at Green Lakes State Park include basic hookups, and are mostly shaded with plenty of grass in between sites.

Another special feature of the park is the 18-hole Green Lakes State Park Golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, where visitors can snowshoe in winter, and there are 15 miles of trails that cross-country skiers can use.

Ska?nonh - Great Law of Peace Center

attraction Liverpool, NY
On the placid shores of Onondaga Lake, not even 15 miles south of Clay, is a unique and breathtaking venue that is a heritage center, museum, and educational facility. Welcome to the Ska?nonh, Great Law of Peace Center. The name of the center means ?peace and wellness? in the local Onondaga language. The history of the indigenous nations of New York is preserved and presented here, told from the point of view of the Onondaga Nation. The name means ?people of the hills?, and the Onondaga are considered to be the spiritual and political center of the Haudenosaune (Iroquois) Nation. Interactive exhibits tell visitors about the history of the people in the region, their spiritual beliefs, and religious festivals. Permanent exhibits include the story of the Iroquois Nations and the devastation wrought by European contact. New exhibits include artistic interpretations of the Onondaga Lake Watershed, and an interpretive display about the Sainte Marie de Gannentaha, a Jesuit mission that stood on the shore of Onondaga Lake in the 1600s.

The Salt Museum

attraction Liverpool, NY
Visiting a Salt Museum may seem like an odd choice but if you enjoy learning about local history, the Salt Museum may be your cup of tea. You will learn all about the industry that created the City of Syracuse and supplied the entire nation with salt! Visitors to the Salt Museum have the opportunity to explore the site of an original boiling block where brine (salt water) was turned into what was then considered one of the country's most precious commodities. You will see the actual kettles, wooden barrels and other equipment that were used in this fascinating process which came to an end in the 1920's. The museum, located on the shore of Onondaga Lake, is full of dynamic exhibits and artifacts. Constructed from timbers taken from actual salt warehouses, it provides an old time rustic experience during your visit. One of the cool things is that you will come away with a whole lot of knowledge about the history of the salt industry in the United States that you can use to entertain friends and family at your next cocktail party.
