On the banks of the Mohawk River, a nice surrounding. Easily accessible back-in site. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a clean, pretty little park on a river, but it is adjacent to a very busy railroad track and there is nearly constant train noise day and night. The approach to the park is across the tracks and a little bit of tight turn. It is convenient to I-90 and services in Glenville/Schenectady. Restrooms and laundry were okay, but need some work. If you are sensitive to noise we'd advise against staying here. It rained while we were there, but there was little mud or standing water. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

On this trip actually my favorite campground because we were right on the Mohawk River (I love water). I liked the layout of the campground as everyone was in a circle so really only the back end of vehicles were close to each other. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

What a lovely park. The sites are grassy with crushed stone landing pads. We were in site 50, which was the end site where we faced a grove of trees with the river and marina beyond. There's plenty of green space and shade trees in the park, and it's beautifully maintained. Even though it's convenient to Interstate 90, there's very little road noise. We were sorry we could only stay one night, and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good Sam discount for overnight stay. Site was a long, level, gravel pull-thru site with 30 amp and water. We had good Verizon voice and data reception. Trees blocked DishTV satellite reception. The park has easy access from the interstate and the park roads are easy to navigate. Train tracks are nearby, but not overly disturbing. There are many seasonal campers, but the sites are well maintained. We would stay here again. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

First Impression: An attractive gem of a CG. Pristine. Clean. Manicured. May through October. Safety: No night lighting but no concerns. Access: Exit 26 off I-90 in NY. Follow route 5 west for all of ¼ mile, turn left, cross the railroad tracks, turn right to the CG. Municipal road in good condition. CG access road in excellent condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Super friendly manager. No store. Cash or checks only. Online reservations not available. My price reflects the Good Sam discount. Facilities: No pool, spa, fitness room or rec center. Small, clean laundry room. Nice restrooms but with small shower stalls and changing area. No mold, some rust, aging fixtures, hot water (score "A-"). No propane sales. No playground. No off-leash dog run. Campground: In a flood plain (Mohawk river). No storm shelter available. Moderately wooded. Interior roads are narrow gravel in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Multiple tent areas, no yurts, no cabins. Sites are all nearby, level, gravel, pull-through (no sewer) and back-in (with sewer), attractive landscaping. Pedestals at rear of site with electric 20/30/50; metered for seasonals. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 3" threaded, at ground level. Nice concrete patios with good picnic tables. Some sites have fire rings. Marginal satellite views (trees). Cable TV connections require receiver. OTA TV found numerous channels. No Wi-Fi. Verizon phone and 4G at 3 bars. Recycle bins take all household recyclables. Noise: Railroad on other side of river with significant noise, occasional aircraft, no traffic, no interstate noise. Bug Report (mid June): non-climbing black ants. Runners: CG roads okay for running. Yoga: patios are plenty big enough for your mat. Conclusion: Score 7-Good. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Go east on route 5 to Scotia then on to Schenectady and Albany for everything a camper might need. National chain eateries, fast food, banks, churches, and theaters. Diesel around the area ranges from $2.999 in Glenville to $3.469 closer into Albany along the interstates (I-87, I-88, and toll I-90).

Beautiful park! The park sits right on the Mohawk River and is wooded (with some sites open to the sky). The grounds in and around the trees are all manicured and well maintained. It is a pleasure to sit outside and enjoy the river and the grounds. The sites are comfortably spaced so you're not crowded. There is wifi throughout and Verizon cell signal was good. If I had to complain about anything it would be the location of the sewer hookup on our site (8). It was all the way to the back of the site. We had to hook up and then back up so it ended up under the RV. Otherwise the hose would have to be way too long. This is a great place and very pretty. We would recommend it. Site 8 has a gorgeous river view and setting. It must be the prime site. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

**Note, park does not accept credit cards** This park is a good location to Schenectady and right on the Mohawk river. The park is quiet and clean and lush. The sites are pretty close together and the one we had was particularly un-level to the point of being 1 of the most un-level sites we've experienced in our 2 yrs of full timing. This was really the only negative for the park but it was a pretty significant negative and bothered me enough to knock a star off just for that. The staff was very friendly. The owner's son checked us in and he was really nice so I don't know about the previous reviews indicating bad customer service, but we did not experience that. Park is easy to navigate with good roads in and out. Big rig friendly and good location to the hwy. Sites are gravel. Drainage was good after rains. The internet. OMG the internet was phenomenal. Free wifi that was over 100mb d/l the entire 2 week stay even with a fairly full park. No cable (they should remove that from their website) but OTA channels were good signal and all the channels you'd need. Because their internet was so great, I didn't use the hotspots but I did test them and both Verizon and ATT had good speeds (over 10mb) w/out booster. We had a 50 amp FHU and it there were no issues with that. Lots of walking opportunities and there's a great paved bike trail right by the railroad tracks where you turn to enter the park. It goes for miles. Used Cunningham's laundromat in Scotia and it was great. Very clean and fair priced with lots of large machines. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

You won't be disappointed staying at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park, nestled alongside the Mohawk River in a parklike setting. Direct access to the river is provided at the park; we enjoyed a nice long kayak adventure up the river. Although most of the sites are under a canopy of trees, we were able to secure a wonderful long, level site with a river view and perfect satellite reception. Roads and sites within the park are gravel, complete with a picnic table and fire ring. The park office is located a short distance from the actual entrance to the park, so don't become concerned about the seemingly long drive. Access to the park is across a set of railroad tracks with an immediate right-hand turn; a bit tricky in a long coach with a tow if you are not expecting the quick turn. Fortunately, the road onto which you turn is not busy, so swinging wide is not a problem. Check-in at the park was quickly accomplished by a wonderfully friendly and accommodating owner, who went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed...even to the point of offering to extend our stay in the same site, should we need it. (Our coach had been damaged by an inattentive truck driver at a fuel stop during our drive to the park, and we were not sure how long we needed to stay while repairs were made. Luckily, our newly-acquainted neighbor at the park recommended a wonderful repair facility in Scotia, NY, where we were able to get needed repairs done quickly and efficiently.) In between repairs, we were made a trip into Albany to visit the state capitol and city sights. Also a minimal biking distance from the park is the entrance (located in the Rt. 5 Park & Ride - back across the railroad tracks) to the Mohawk Hudson Bikeway which we rode all the way into Schenectady. Should we ever be in this area again, we would not hesitate to stay at Arrowhead again, nor do we hesitate recommending this park to everyone. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We called at the last minute requesting a pull thru site. They were very accommodating getting us just what we needed for a one night stopover. The site had new gravel and was recently upgraded to 50 amp. We did have to disconnect the fifth wheel in order to raise the trailer to get level. The train noise is loud and constant as others have noted, so just plan on running a fan or a/c unit to generate some white noise while sleeping. This is a great stopover, just a few minutes off the Thruway. And the views of the river are nice. The staff is very helpful, we observed them assisting a couple with a soft tire on their towed car. We will stay here again. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent three weeks here while work was being done on our home. There were no sewer sites available at that time, but being pumped out as as easy as walking to the office and requesting the service. The RV park was very clean and well kept. The owners were extremely helpful, and went out their way to help us out. There is no cable right now, but local channels were easy to pick up. I would highly recommend a stay here. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here one night last year and I felt I did not have sufficient information to do a full review. This time we stayed two nights and enjoyed the camp very much. Like others have said this park has many well manicured grassy sites with mature shade trees through out the park. It is very quiet and I love the fact that there are no golf carts driving around all day. Showers and laundry are in a "trailer" building. Although they are a bit old, the showers have everything you want, towel bar, seat, dressing area with drainage mat, and plenty of hot water. Staff is very courteous and eager to please. We were to have a FHU site but when we arrived we found out that the person on the site we were to have had technical difficulties and was waiting for a part so we were offered a water/electric 30 amps and one night free. With a clean and easy to reach pump out area, I thought it was a great bargain. They even have a fenced dog area large enough to throw a toy. No special amenities for children but great views of the scenic Mohawk river. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
