“Great place to walk during the snowy winter”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Love that they plow the roads and parking lots during the winter. When it's too dangerous to walk on the streets with enormous snow bankings, Hop State Park is nice alternative - quiet, nice views, paved roads. The only downside are the "little presents" left on the roads and paths by the dogs who are being walked by lazy owners.

Nice hiking trails, and a pretty lake and beaches. You can rent kayaks, canoes, or sail boats there. Fun spot for a family day trip.

“many activities,nice view, not so crowded,but paid”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

the park has lot to offer. there is a entry fee. there are hiking/biking trails, small beach area to play,kayak/canoe/standing paddle board rental avialable there. also the park is divided in 2 parts-upper lower,giving it two lakes+ a breakwater path to walk in between. there are picnic tables,grill,restrooms. no shower. the trails are on upper part. there are many trails for hiking.the healthy heart trail also there. take a map before you go. the trails interwine. we also did mountain biking in the trails. has lot of up and down,unpaved with many stones. but was fun. can get muddy and water on hide tide or after rains. even take your canoe to one of the island in lake and you can climb there and see the views or get in the shallow waters near the edge there. very refreshing. overall a beautiful place where you can relax sitiing near the rocks hearing the water crush on rocks/do fishing or enjoy the day doing some activities.
