We took a boat ride up to Bear Mountain from Manhattan. It was November 1st and the weather was unseasonably warm. The foliage was spectacular. The park itself was very clean with a nice restaurant. Would go back!

Enjoyed our sons birthday Party At the Carousel at Bear Mountain and it was so great. My Son and his friends and cousins all had a ball. They made it easy and it was so much fun. I highly recommend. This is a great place to visit. An awesome place to meet with friends and family. Truly a treasure.

We visited as a family in October. Although there were many other people there, the park is big enough that you do not feel crowded. This historical exhibits are well thought out and displayed. Of course, on a bright autumn day, the views in all directions are stunning.

Great hiking, dining. Dog friendly. Enjoyed the panoramic views of Bear Mountain. Also visited Tarrytown close by. Nice getaway. Much needed relaxation. The Bear Mountain inn & Spa was amazing. The Lavender garden massage is the best massage I have ever had. Laura had magic hands, I enjoyed this vacation.

First of all, the lodge is pet friendly. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are very clean. How clean? Normally I would not walk barefooted in a hotel room, these rooms I did. Excellent hot breakfast in the morning! The staff is friendly and very accommodating. The walk around Lake Hussain is fabulous. There are lots of great Italian... More

A terrific family-friendly location. Hiking & biking trails, row-boating & paddle-boating; zoo & pool (seasonal) and bar-b-que venues available. Great views of local mountains & Perkins tower.

A great place. I was here during a chilly day during fall to do some hiking. There are some unmarked trails with a medium - medium plus degree of difficulty, as well as trails which are much more comfortable and suitable for the whole family. I guess the views and the surrounding would be more appealing during summer, but still,... More
