Discover Plattsburgh, NY
Just a stone’s throw from the United States-Canada border, Plattsburgh is a historic city on the shores of Lake Champlain. It came under French rule in the early 17th century before being passed onto the British and served as the site of numerous historical events during the Revolutionary War’s Battle of Valcour Island and the 1812 Battle of Plattsburgh.
It was officially founded in 1785 under American rule as the village of Plattsburgh before being incorporated as a city in 1903. Today, it’s a popular destination to rent an RV for vacationers from Montreal and the United States wanting to explore everything that Clinton County has to offer.
The Great Outdoors
Book an RV rental in Plattsburgh and make the short drive west to Schuyler Falls and the Macomb State Forest, which lies along the Salmon River on its route to Lake Champlain. This former military training facility has retained a wilderness atmosphere, as well as encompassing a children’s playground, recreational courts, and picnic pavilions. Follow the short nature trail or explore the Davis Pond and Salmon River by boat, with the park transforming during the winter months for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice skating.
A little farther away sprawls the McKenzie Mountain Wilderness Area, which is dominated by the peaks of Saddleback and Moose mountains. It forms part of the extensive Adirondack Park and is ideally explored on foot, with trails accessing the summits of Haystack Mountain, Whiteface Mountain, and Baker Mountain, which offers one of the best views in the Adirondacks. Lake Placid is a popular destination for boating and fishing, with rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, and yellow perch among the offerings.
Another world-renowned nearby fishing destination is Lake Champlain, which is home to more than 80 species of both warm and cold-water fish. Head to Deep Bay in the Point Au Roche State Park where you can launch your vessel or just explore the surrounding hiking and mountain biking trails. Point Au Roche also features picnic facilities and recreational courts, together with a sandy beach where you can soak up the waterfront views.
Pick up your travel trailer rental in Plattsburgh and pull into one of the 170 RV sites at the Plattsburgh RV Park, which lies just north of the city. There’s a large, heated swimming pool and also children’s play area, as well as a miniature golf course, petanque courts, and a large clubhouse.
Also nearby is the Shady Oaks RV Park, a pet-friendly campground that features just over 100 large RV sites with either 20, 30, or 50-amp service. All of the sites have fire rings and picnic tables while there are also a swimming pool, a clubhouse, and laundry facilities available.
A 15-minute drive south to Peru will see you at the Iroquois Campground & RV Park where you can book one of their 190 level RV sites. The kids will stay entertained with a playground, recreational courts, and a gaming arcade, as well as a two-acre pond that’s ideal for paddle boating and fishing.
Exploring the City
Park your RV rental near Plattsburgh and explore the city on foot, beginning at the Clinton County Historical Museum. It occupies one of Plattsburgh’s original buildings on what is now the Museum Campus and exhibits a range of Native American and colonial artifacts in its beautifully preserved rooms. Get up close to Captain Edwin Murphy's WWI scrapbook, as well as an impressive collection of Redford Glass ornaments and lamps.
Another museum not to miss is the Champlain Valley Transportation Museum, which celebrates the region’s transportation history. It began life as an automobile museum in 2000 and has expanded to include not only classic cars, such as a 1903 Oldsmobile and 1956 Buick Century but also a Kids’ Station dedicated to the history and future of transportation in general. A highlight of the collection is the 1915 Lozier, which is the only known Type 82 Lozier in existence.
If you’re traveling with kids, make a point of visiting the family-friendly farm just a few miles northwest of town, where seasonal activities such as pumpkin picking and sleigh rides are offered. Get lost in the towering corn maze or enjoy a ride in a wagon or sleigh while being pulled by Belgian draft horses. The farm also features a small petting zoo where young visitors can get up close to a range of friendly, domesticated animals and there’s always freshly-picked produce for sale.
