Discover Utica

Situated on the banks of the Mohawk River in Central New York is the industrial town of Utica. Utica has always been a haven for those looking for a home. During the American Revolutionary War, Utica served as a haven for those escaping the violence and aftermath. Utica continues to serve those looking for a new start, with refugees and immigrants from almost every war zone in the last 100 years. Today, Utica is a melting pot of cultures thanks to decades of community growth. Visitors to the Utica area are in a prime middle ground for exploring the forests, plains, and even the Finger Lakes.

When you book an RV in Oneida County, you will be able to reach the foothills of the Adirondacks, the Finger Lakes, and the northern reaches of Upstate New York. Not only that but being right in between Albany and Syracuse opens up even more exploratory opportunities.

The Great Outdoors

Just a reasonable drive northeast of Utica is the Ferris Lake Wild Forest near Little Falls. At just under 150,000 acres, Ferris Lake offers visitors easy access to the foothills and peaks of the Adirondacks. With over 100 miles of trails, you can explore the valleys, peaks, and forests of Upstate New York. If you’d rather enjoy the beautiful waters of Ferris Lake, you can secure a boat or paddleboat to explore the waterways of the Adirondacks. Or you can stay on the shores of the lake and try your hand at fishing for various species of trout, pickerel, and bass.

Another easy drive south of town is the Charles E Baker State Forest near Hamilton. Just under 10,000 acres, the state forest is a wonderful oasis away from the rest of the world. However, there is still access to more than 100 miles of trails laced through the forest, some even connecting you to other parks. If you’re traveling to Upstate New York in the winter, this forest is an ideal place for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and even snowmobiling.

If you’re looking for something a little different, you can head to Rome Sand Plains Unique Area in Rome. Just a short drive northwest of town, here you can adventure through the Sand Plains and pine barrens and get a true sense of the various different ecosystems of Upstate New York. You’ll be able to explore sand dunes, peat bogs, and other bizarre inland wetland habitats. You’ll even be able to see some of the unique wildlife that calls the area home, like beavers, hawks, and even the endangered frosted elfin butterfly.

RV Parks

When you rent an RV in Utica, you are going to want to make sure that you have a campground or RV site to call your home-away-from-home. Luckily enough, there are a few places around town that are worth considering.

Just to the east of town is the Herkimer Diamond KOA Resort. At the KOA, guests have access to full hook-up sites, restroom and shower facilities, laundry facilities, and Wi-Fi. You can also search for Herkimer diamonds on the property and go tubing down the river.

Just west of town is the Villages RV Park at Turning Stone. Park the Utica motorhome rental here, and you'll have access to full hookups, restroom and shower facilities, and laundry facilities. There’s also a fishing pond on site along with a heated pool.

Explore the City

There are plenty of activities to fill your days in and around Utica. When you rent an RV, you will be able to easily explore the local community and gain a greater understanding of the various cultures and sub-communities inside Utica.

If you want to see some wildlife not necessarily native to Central New York, you can head to the Utica Zoo. You can see some of the local wildlife, such as wolves, foxes, and porcupines. However, Utica Zoo is also home to zebras, hyenas, and various monkeys and lemurs. The Utica Zoo also hosts events for the local community and its visitors.

For a relaxing day in, you can spend some time at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute. You can stroll around the art exhibits showcasing various paintings and sculptures. The Institute also hosts film viewings, sometimes even showcasing local filmmakers.

If you’re traveling with children, you can spend part of the day at the Utica Children’s Museum. Near the historic train station, the museum is four floors filled with exhibits and play areas designed for kids of all ages. Kids can learn about the Native American tribes who once lived in the area, play in the dinosaur room, get creative in the arts and crafts room, and learn about the history of the railroad.

When you rent an RV in Utica, you will quickly realize just how many different cultures live together in this city. Just by driving around downtown Utica, you’ll be able to have a meal at a Dominican or Ethiopian restaurant, dessert at an Italian or Middle Eastern bakery, and can pick up snacks at an Asian or Eastern European market.

When you're ready to stock up on supplies or need to refuel the campervan rental in Utica, you'll find various gas stations and grocery stores in and around town.
