There's also a kayak launch on the creek side and a larger boat launch to the Hudson River. On Fridays during the summer, you can enjoy local live music and grab a bite from the fire department food truck at the pavilion area.

    Wildlife is abundant here, with large cottonwood trees providing a habitat for various animals. You might spot bunnies, weasels, chipmunks, birds, and butterflies during your stay. The campground also has a couple of book exchanges, so you can grab a new read while you're relaxing by the fire.

    For those who need to stay connected, the Verizon signal is decent enough to stream Netflix using a hotspot. Just remember to bring your dog's rabies records if you're bringing your furry friend along, as the staff is strict about this requirement.

    Overall, Schodack Island State Park Campground offers a clean, friendly, and activity-filled camping experience. Whether you're there for the hiking, boating, or just to relax, it's a spot worth checking out.
