Fine "passive" state park

It's a state park, good for walking, biking and kayaking. You are on your own -- no lifeguards, organized activities, etc. Quite extensive, it connects with Haley Farm, and on... read more

It's a state park, good for walking, biking and kayaking. You are on your own -- no lifeguards, organized activities, etc. Quite extensive, it connects with Haley Farm, and on through the developing Groton Green Belt (due in large part to the efforts of the Groton Open Space Association).

I have been here so many times over the years, but after every visit, it reminds me why I like it so much. This is just a great place to go for a nice walk out to the water. Even in the summer, while it is more crowded, it never feels that way. The hike out to the bluff is... More

Took a walk out here with the family today, beautiful walking trail following the water, plenty of scenery and a very nice stone beach about half way around. Beautiful and peaceful, not real crowded.

What a great place to hike, bike, fish or just have a nice family picnic, I enjoyed a romantic walk along the water with my wife after we had some ice cream from the dairy queen up the street

Awesome park! Came here because I'm from a land locked area so I wanted to get a taste of the beach. Nicely cleared walking path around the park and tons of shells at the beach! Not really any waves but more like a lake type setting. Only downside is its about a 30 minute walk to the beach which I... More

Bluff Point State Park is the perfect place for a nice long walk with beautiful scenery and easy access. Not sure what it's like in summer months, but in Fall and Spring, not very crowded and the most beautiful views of the ocean! Great for catching up with friends.

Although I have lived in the area for a number of years I had not taken advantage of this particular spot. I like to walk an average of five miles/day and frankly have been looking for a new venue. This is an excellent choice. The path from the parking lot to the beach is approximately 1.5 miles long and there... More

Great trail system that ends up with views of Long Island/Fishers Island Sound. What more can you ask for? Great for walking the dog. The wind definitely kicks up in the winter but the water views are worth it. A lot of parking.

Much of the trail has a water view. Great for dog walking. A little rough for biking. Could be a 5 star in the fall.
