“perfect for a picnic!”
Located where the Mohawk River meets the Hudson, this state park is located on a rich floodplain that was inhabited by Native Americans and Colonists for decades as they planted and raised livestock. Travelers will find that former industrial buildings now house the Peebles Island Resource Center -- serving as a source of interpretive, technological, and archaeological support for other parks and historic sites.If you have a picnic lunch, this is a great place to kick back and enjoy. The park features large nature walk areas and remains of Revolutionary-era breastwork built by Thaddeous Koscuisko in 1777. Peebles Island has a front row seat for watching the boats from both the Erie and Champlain Canals.This is one of the five named islands in the delta-like configuration at the confluence of the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers. The island was the site of a Revolutionary War battle and an industrial site during part of the 18th and the entire 19th century. An extensive nature trail network is open year-round. The NY State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, with its collection of historic materials, and the Erie Canalway Heritage Corridor Visitors Center are located here.
