Wedged between Adirondack and Catskills parks, the Tentrr Yankee Hill Getaway campsite lies on a thin strip of land in the middle of the old Erie Canal and the modern-day Barge Canal system. This area is teeming with places to bike, hike and explore the region’s rich history. At the eastern end of the site is the Putnam Lock Stand, a historic general store that used to sell dry goods, meat, groceries, liquors and literature to canal travelers. All campsites are on the open lawn with tents facing the Mohawk River/Erie Canal. An included pop-up tent can house additional campers (up to 4). Kick back and soak up the view from your Adirondack chairs. Your group can enjoy the included fire pit, grill, picnic table and benches during your stay. If you’re hungry after a day of adventure, the nearby town of Amsterdam (3 miles) also has several local restaurants and cafes as well as Riverlink Park which hosts outdoor concerts and has a boat dock. For the paddlers in the family, there is a self-service kayak rental kiosk on the campsite run by Upstate Kayak Rentals.
