SArATogA region Saratoga Region From the excitement of thoroughbred horse racing at the landmark Saratoga Race Course to water sports on the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers, and from the sites of important Revolutionary War battles to the seat of state government at the Capitol and Empire State Plaza in Albany, the Saratoga/Capital Region has countless activities that will keep people of all ages and interests entertained. THOMPSON’S LAKE STATE PARK Thompson’s Lake State Park, just about 17 miles south of Albany, encompasses 125 acres of waterfront, forests and open space in the mountains near the Helderberg Escarpment. Campers find quiet and seclusion amidst the wooded campsites at the park. You can swim, boat, fish, hike nature trails, enjoy kids playing on the playground or compete in a friendly game of volleyball or horseshoes. The park’s Emma Treadwell Thacher Nature Center provides a variety of interesting exhibits and interactive environmental programs for children. Less than two miles away from 74 |
