**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.

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.

This is an absolutely beautiful RV Park. The roads and sites are gravel, with green grass and trees everywhere. We are unable to get satellite service at our site. Internet service is good. A staff member has been extremely helpful, first with our car that wouldn't start; and then trying to get sateliite service. It's a medium size park with circular areas for RVs. There is a large fenced in grassy area for dogs. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Albany is about 30 miles away and Cooperstown is about 60+ miles away. If you have a boat, kayak, etc., a river runs through and there are docks to tie up to.

Site was level, clean. A bit close to other sites but very workable. We were about 100 feet from river. OTA TV worked well. WiFi worked well. No sewer at site, dump station available. Great little campground. Cash or checks only. Could barely hear trains. Will stay here again!! We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park but bring your earplugs. Train are noisy. New this year there is no cable tv (they cancelled due to cost) and you will not get any satellite reception as way too many trees. Park is right along river so nice view. Fun to watch the boats go by. Bathrooms are ok, not great but ok. Also, no camp store on premises so bring what you need.

Very nice setting on the Mohawk River. Tall trees and nicely manicured yet natural grounds. Sites were gravel with a cement pad. Very level. Bathrooms were just ok. Not bad but not any wow. Very nondescript and a little small. They are fine though and shouldn't be a negative in your consideration of staying here. Very quiet. Looks to be a lot of either residents or weekenders that are quiet or not there midweek. Reviews talked about the train. Totally not even a big deal or even a thing to mention in my opinion. Best part: located right by a super nice bike trail. The trail access is by the Park and Ride which you will see at turn by railroad tracks upon entrance. It is a paved trail so it is great for bikes, etc. Super nice running trail for a nice run. Zeus and I did 6 miles easily and could have done more if we wanted. Like reviews state, be aware to swing wide on the right turn at railroad tracks. No play ground or really kid things but there is pavement for a scooter, bike, etc. Wide open tree/lawn space for frisbees or such. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

On your approach to the campground, there is a 90 degree turn to the right just over a set of railroad tracks. If you are travelling long, as we do (41' with 24' trailer), prepare accordingly or you will drag your trailer over the tracks.

This is a lovely park by the river. One of the prettiest we have stayed at. However I must disagree with some other reviews on the train noise. We found the train is very loud and it blows the horns many times as it comes by the park. So if you have problems sleeping this could be an issue. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice RV campground located near Exit 26 off I-90 east of Albany. No road noise noticeable, but a train does run infrequently nearby. Park like atmosphere, with river access boat ramp, but no boat rental. Full hook ups including cable. WiFi signal was weak. Verizon wireless signal was 3 bars. Friendly staff, but they don't take credit cards. About 30 percent seasonal residents. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mile off I-890 and close to I-90. On Van Buren Lane, turn immediate right after railroad tracks and follow RV park signs. GPS has you going straight and into a neighborhood. The beautiful park is along the Mohawk River. We called before they opened for the season to reserve a site for a week. Because they were already booked, we were assigned a partial hook up site. We were assured that if there was a cancelation we would be reserved for a full hook up site. When we arrived, we had a wonderful surprise. As promised, we only had a partial hook up the first night , the next day we were able to move to a full hook up. They gave us one of the best sites in the park as we were front row on the river. The owner took great care of us! The partial hook up didn't have sewer, but was pull thru, close to level and heavily wooded. Our river side site was back in, gravel, close to level. We couldn't get satellite at either site, but they have cable. It worked good. There is internet connection, although didn't stay connected, therefore wasn't very good. We had a picnic table, fire ring and concrete patio. There is grass area between sites. Water pressure was ok. Both sites were long enough to fit rig and tow. There is additional parking in the park. Site payment is cash or check. There is a small laundry room, 3 washers and 4 dryers, which was adequate. There is a nice size dog park and plenty of green space to walk dogs. And, yes, there are multiple train tracks in the area, therefore multiple trains, but not running all day and it's not too loud to be a bother. There is a paved trail close enough to walk and bike. The park is clean and well maintained. This park is quiet, no kid activities except the river. We enjoyed the quietness and will stay again at this park. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We had a Good Sam discount. Our site #50 was a pull through with 50 amp/electric, no sewer. They have a dump station. Our site 50 was not level side to side, so our tires were off the ground on the right side. The sites are shady. It is a very nice rv park beside the Mohawk River with a marina. The staff is very nice and helpful. Some sites have sewer hookups. The seasonals here are friendly and nice, keeping their sites tidy. The laundry room is inexpensive and clean. You do hear train whistles at this park, so you may consider ear plugs at night. If traveling I-90 in the future, we would stay at the Arrowhead Marina RV Park again. It is a pretty rv campground. Watch the right turn as you cross the railroad tracks with your unit to the campground. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
