Also visible are the Hudson River Valley, the Port of Albany, large portions of the city and its government, the foothills of the
Adirondacks, the Catskills, and the Berkshires of western Massachusetts.

Great first Boondocking experience!

We enjoyed our first experience using Boondockers Welcome. Our host was very welcoming and helpful and we were able to utilize the trails behind the house to exercise our dog. We are thankful for the hospitality!

Lovely area, lovely stay

This was my family's first BW stay! They were welcoming, kind, and generous. A great start to a big road trip!

One if the best BW spots we have found

This place was amazing. Very easy to find, all the roads leading to it are easily accessible and the spot itself was very easy to back in. Plenty of room to pull forward and line it up so youre basically backing straight in. Plenty of space in the yard. For slides or awnings.
Our host was amazing. Not only did he hook us up to water, wifi, and power, but he had chickens and ducks that my wife got to feed and play with. He even gave us some duck eggs.
We were just passing through so we only stayed the one night but If we are ever in the albany area again we will definitely try and stay again.

A Joyful Stay on the Farm

We traveled to the area for a less than happy reason, to visit a family member who was gravely ill. Our hosts were incredible: they were generous with assisting us with parking, and provided us with way more than we expected—30 amp power, water, assistance with our faulty hose connection, offers to use a power washer, and farm fresh eggs! Most of all, we appreciated a kind, safe space to come home to each evening after spending long days at the hospital. We 100% would recommend this unique, special location. This kind of experience is why we joined Boondockers Welcome.

Beautiful farm

We stopped at the farm for a short overnight. Not only did they offer their spot, but gave us a ton of eggs from their happy free range chickens and ducks. After we left, they even reached out to us in message to share some important information we needed for our RV. Never expected it, but they went above and beyond. We really appreciate y'all. Happy travels!

Quiet rural night

We have a lovely quiet evening with Horses and Hunting. Being nearer the road we thought it would be noisy but it turned out to be the best nights sleep. Even the rooster was crowing softly in the morning.

Wonderful hosts—would definitely stay again!

They were helpful and gracious hosts. He wasn't home when we arrived, but swung by to check on us when he got back (we stayed in the back property), and in the morning there were a dozen fresh eggs waiting for us that he had dropped off before heading to work. We only stayed one night, but would definitely stay again!

Winter wonderland farm

I’m very new to this site and boondocking and staying here made it one of my most excellent first times boondocking! I just needed a place to stay the night on my way through and the hosts were more than accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure I was settled, comfortable, and warm when a lot of snow came through. I learned more about power and electricity and some tips moving forward from the host that I’m very thankful for.
They even offered to let me use their snow shoes to explore their acreage which I would’ve loved to do if I’d had more time here. I did spend a few moments watching their beautiful chickens play around. I would definitely stay here again, maybe in the summer instead, and I highly recommend this place to others!
Thank you very much!

The first guests!

We had the privilege to be the first to stay at this new host location. The host and his family were very welcoming. Our girls enjoyed chasing the chickens, ducks and roosters around the property and we even had the opportunity to try some fresh eggs. Back in is easy, right off the main road next to the coups. Water and electric were easy to hook up. We had an excellent time soaking in farm life and would stay again.
