Troy, New York has been attracting people for years and was the place to live during the 19th century. Evidence of its former popularity back then can be seen through the city’s abundance of empty brownstones and architecturally stunning yet outdated buildings. Today, with an abundance of coffee shops, a vibrant urban lifestyle, and a thriving technology scene, Troy has been called “the new Brooklyn.”
As if a flourishing professional sector, unique coffee houses, talented local artists, food trucks, and sandwich shops weren't enough to entice just about everyone, Troy is also conveniently located near, well, everything. It’s two hours' drive from New York City and can be reached via train. Albany, the capital of New York, is less than 15 minutes' drive away. And, if you’re in the mood for some pristine wilderness, the Adirondack Mountains are less than three hours' drive north of Troy. Whether you’re into the coffee, history, or unspoiled scenery, you definitely won’t regret booking an RV rental in Troy, New York.
When people think New York, most think skyscrapers, Times Square, and trains, but New York has so much natural beauty to see and explore. One such place to visit when you rent a motorhome in Troy is Peebles Island State Park. Just 15 minutes' drive away in Waterford, the state park is situated at the confluence of the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers. Stretching across 190 scenic acres, when you’re here, you can enjoy miles of nature trails, horseshoe pits, picnic pavilions, boat launches, and observation decks. There are also opportunities for fishing and, during the winter, shoe showing and cross-country skiing.
Prospect Park in Troy sits on 80 acres and was designed by Garnet Baltimore, the first African-American graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in 1903. Visit for a few hours or spend the whole day because there’s enough to do here that you won’t get bored. The park features 14 tennis courts, two basketball courts, four handball areas, a softball and soccer field, picnic pavilions, nature trails, and comfort stations. When the weather warms up, cool down at the spray pool. No matter your age, you can have a good time when you book a travel trailer rental in Troy and visit Prospect Park.
If you want to hunt down some majestic waterfalls, head to Poestenkill Falls, just a few miles from Troy's city center. Within Poestenkill Gorge Park, the falls, which go by several names, total more than 175 feet from top to bottom. From publicly accessible land, visitors can only see the lower portion of the falls, but the view is spectacular nonetheless. Be sure to pay this hidden gem a visit when you book an RV in Rensselaer County.
Troy doesn’t have many RV parks, but there are a few nearby that you can call home for a night or two...or more. One option in Averill Park is Alps Family Campground. Soak in the sounds of nature in this wooded and rural campground. Go for an afternoon stroll down one of the on-site nature trails, take a dip in the pool, or make some s’mores in your private fire pit. In addition to a fire ring, each site has partial hookups and a picnic table. Some sites offer sewer hookups too, or you could use the on-site dump station. While camping here, you’ll have access to hot showers, a fishing pond, horseshoe pits, a basketball court, video arcade, and playgrounds.
Another place you can consider for your Troy RV rental is Lee’s Park in Saratoga Springs. Situated on the shores of Saratoga Lake and minutes from Downtown Saratoga, guests to the campground can pitch a tent, bring their RV, and rent dock space to access to the lake. While here, you can enjoy fishing, water sports, camping, and boating. Full hookup sites are available, but spaces are limited, so be sure to reserve in advance.
Learn about the regional iron industry when you book a camper rental in Troy and visit the Burden Iron Works Museum. Thanks to the area’s iron works, the world has things like horseshoes, the modern fire hydrant, some of the valves and locks on the Panama Canal, the first truly all-woman labor union, and the most powerful water wheel in history, the Burden Water Wheel. In fact, because of its enormous role in the economy, some have called South Troy the Silicon Valley of the 19th century. Today, exhibits at the museum speak to the transformation of the area thanks to the iron works.

Cemeteries are usually not people’s “go-to” recreational activity, but Oakwood Cemetery in Troy is a little different. Founded in 1848, it is one of nation’s largest rural cemeteries and offers magnificent panoramic views of the Hudson Valley.
