ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT HERE. The platform was great for our tent. We have the gazelle t4 plus (8 person tent) and it fit perfect. Even for a hammock and our pop up shower on the side with space to walk around the tent on the platform. The paved area was great for our canopy by the picnic table. The site next to you will be able to see if you if any one is staying there which would be the only con for me as we were looking for somewhere super private BUT the site wasn’t being used so it was great. Having access to the kayaks was awesome . The water was great for kayaking. I would not swim in it (personal preference) but the dogs loved it . The water is a short walk down the hill and across the road but it wasn’t a problem. I brought chairs for the dock which was great . The dock doesn’t have any shaded area so if you plan in hanging down there you’ll need your own gear. . We will absolutely be back to this location. Usually bugs are insane at night but for some reason it was not a problem at this site. Loved it !

John’s property was beautiful! It was quiet, comfortable, and secluded for being close to a city. We enjoyed the kayaks for a sunset ride down the river! Great spot if you’re coming with your pets. I would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful weekend for our Anniversary camping trip on John’s site, Nature’s Nook! It is secluded and peaceful with a great overlook of sunsets on the Hudson River. You need to be comfortable using a portable toilet (we took a bucket with a toilet seat). Fire wood, kayaks, and bikes are accessible in a shed and the site is conveniently located between Troy and Mechanicville if needed for odds and ends that you may have forgotten or to replenish ice in your cooler. Bring your own water for drinking, dishes, showers, etc. We brought a portable solar shower and it was perfect for the trip!

Really nice spot. I was surprised and impressed with how private it feels considering how close to Albany/Troy it is. Well maintained and easy to find. The host was helpful and replied quickly.

The water was fantastic. I think it was probably the best two days of my puppy's life so far. There's two kayaks available and tons of cool beaches and islands to explore. Really great spot if you love being in the water.

We very much enjoyed our time here and definitely recommend it.

A beautiful spot. We loved the wooden platform it was a great place to set up our tent and it acted like a front porch on which to sit, enjoy the river and watch the egrets find their breakfast.
