Welcome to Rensselaer County! Located in the Hudson-Mohawk Heritage area of Upstate New York’s Capital Region.

Rensselaer County is filled with wonderful contradictions and juxtapositions.

Stretching thirty miles along the Hudson River, it offers thousands of acres of parks, miles of trails, and more than 500 lakes, ponds, and even championship golf courses.
