According to their website: Schodack Island State Park sits off the eastern shore of the Hudson River just south of Albany. A day-use facility, the park has been designated a State Estuary, and a portion of the park shelters a Bird Conservation area (BCA) that is home to bald eagles, cerulean warblers and blue herons, that nest in cottonwood trees. Eight miles of multi-use trails wind through a variety of ecological communities. In addition, the park has an improved bike trail, volleyball nets, horseshoe and a kayak/canoe launch site. Interpretive signage highlights the park’s historic and environmental significance. Picnicking tables and grills are available and the park offers group reservations for a fee.
