We would come here every summer, but now on top of parking fee they charge you fee per person on the beach. Really? For this beach? They don't even provide bathrooms! There are much better options in the county. The beach is more pebble than sand and the water looks dirty. Too bad, it was once a nice place to... More

Although I've visited the park in every season, I prefer late spring/early summer. The views of the Hudson are spectacular. I enjoy walking, bird watching, picnicking, and just relaxing at this park.

The Croton point Park is a very nice place to take a walk and walk around and enjoy the sights of the Croton river. There was also a 911 Memorial there if you walk further.

Very nice place to go for a day outside on the banks of the Hudson River. Great scenery and ideal for some nature and landscape photography. Also fun to watch people flying remote control airplanes

This is a fantastic place to exercise and especially to walk while in croton. There is a great swimming beach and lots of picnicking and camping opportunities here. It's a very pretty spot and the beautiful Hudson River sidles up to the park. Great place for families or just an early morning walk.

I had 2 hr to kill so I stop by this place. It had a great view of Hudson river and perfect for picnic and to watch the sun set. I believe they charge fee during the certain time of the year.

Off season, this is a marvelous resource (it can be pretty busy from Memorial Day to Labor Day and there's an entrance fee). Great for walking and mild hiking along trails, over lawns, along a short beach, even on some paved roads. Great for watching the river and river traffic, mild climbs with lovely views at the top, seeing wildlife,... More

This large park is on a point that juts right out into the Hudson River and in that regard is unique. We were there on a cool day in late March, so only a few people were present. However, it was clear that in season, this park must be buzzing. It has ample room for lots and lots of family... More
