This state park mostly consists of a very nice beach on Peconic Bay. Being so open to the ocean it is one of the nicer Bay beaches around. Shaded picnic area, and a very nice playground. There is also kayak rentals, and a small shop for all the things you may have forgotten (e.g., sunblock, towels, drinks, ice). There is... More

My husband had read that after 4 PM you can enter and park here for free. It was a torturously hot day but after hours, around 4:45 PM, we came here with our beach chairs. Parking was easy and the area is lush and gorgeous - green saltwater marshes to the right and water to the right. There is a... More

We enjoyed a short drive and visit to the gift shop/ticketing. Scenery was enjoyable despite passing showers marring the serenity of this park. Great place to picnic and ponder the full expanse of the horizon and the bird life it presents.

Beautiful beaches, though a bit rocky. Wander away from the crowds for good fishing and beachcombing.

We spent time here daily on our mid-April wine-tasting visit. As others note it is a rocky, rather than sandy beach, but there are miles to walk, the seascapes are lovely and the Roy Latham nature walk is a plus. Even when officially closed, the facilities were immaculate, and there were picnic tables and charcoal grills under shade trees along... More

This is a great place for biking or walking though the paths. There is a nice big playground for the kids. I wouldn't want to sun bath here though, its to rocky. It is really pretty and there's a lot of wildlife. Also its right next to the ferry so if your heading to or from there you must stop... More

I could see for about 15-20 feet in any direction which I thought was awesome for NY. I saw 3 different species of fish; one of which I thought was a puffer... More
