Amsterdam is a nice town along the Erie Canal between Lock E10 and Lock E11. Here you can stop at the beautiful Riverlink Park and access the town for supplies, shopping, laundry and more. For those looking to be away from the nice services of the Riverlink park, Amsterdam also offers the option of Guy Park, which is just west of Lock E11.
Riverlink park is a newly redeveloped wall along the canal. It offers a place to spend the night with electricity, water, bathrooms, playground, laundry services, and more. Daytime dockage is free, and overnight dockage is $1.00/foot, and it is free out of season (but no amenities).
Guy Park is located just west of Lock E11 of the Erie Canal on the northern shore. It offers boaters a free place to stay for up to two nights. Offering 15A electricity, water, and a walking distance to town, this makes Guy Park an attractive spot to stop for those on a budget.

Enlarged Erie Canal Lock 28

Just west of Lock E11 on the south bank of the modern canal (Mohawk River) is the remains of an Old Erie Canal Lock. Known as the 'Yankee Hill' lock, this site was cleaned up and currently is used as a canal park with a dock for boaters to stop and visit the site. The Canalway trail also runs through the area so this makes a peaceful stop to take a walk and/or use the picnic tables and grills. Also on site is an old canal grocery store that you can enter to experience what life would have been like here over 100 years ago.
