The Schuyler Yacht Basin & RV Park is one of the premier marinas in the northeastern United States and proudly located on the New York State Canal System. We are on the Hudson River/Champlain Canal and mid-point between Troy and Whitehall. As an important stretch of the Erie Canalway, the Champlain Canal not only brings you to us but can take you anywhere in the world.
It is only a two-block walk into the Village of Schuylerville where you find motels, restaurants, unique shops and of course, a full grocery store. Fifteen minutes by car or taxi takes you to the city of Saratoga Springs, world renowned for its horse racing, performing arts, mineral baths, shopping, dining and night life.
Our guests, whether they are boaters, RVers or cyclists have come from almost every state in the USA, from all parts of Canada and North America, Europe, the Caribbean, and South America. The highest praise visitors have given us is simple – they tell us that they feel like they’re coming home when they stay with us.
2016 marks our 30th year in business. We went searching for a boat in the fall of 1985 and bought a marina instead!! It has been 30 years of life lessons – a lot of hard work, the ups and downs of business, joys, sorrows, friendships made and friends lost to us. It all sounds like the material for a book and Judy keeps threatening to write one! The title will be “White Caps on the Lawn”. When we first moved here in the spring, the water flooded up our front lawn towards the house (as it does and always will) and we had a terrible thunderstorm that sent the waves rocking and rolling producing those white caps that we rarely see up this far on the Hudson or Canal. We panicked, cursed the heavens and ran about securing docks, picnic tables and anything else that wasn’t tied down. We woke up the next day and the sun was shining, the water was receding and any notion of the past days’ storm was not to be believed. That was when we learned the most important lesson that the Hudson River/Champlain Canal has to offer. Each day is new, each day is different and each day brings us new people and their stories.
We invite you to visit us, whether you stay for your whole vacation, a few days, just overnight or for a quick fuel and pump-out stop on your way through the Canal.
The coffee is on for you everyday at 7AM and as Phil says “We’ll be here”.
