Rivers and Lakes

Henry Hudson discovered Albany by water 400 years ago. Why shouldn’t you do the same? Cast off at the Corning Preserve Boat Launch and head downstream for waterside views of the Albany skyline via kayak. Bike, walk or cruise along the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor to experience this historic waterway first-hand. Or camp at Thompson’s Lake State Park and enjoy beaches, boating, and fishing.
