“A beautiful spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

There is something for everyone here. A beautiful (but rocky, beware!) beach with great swimming; hiking and running trails; picnic areas with barbecues; and a golf course.

“Great place for walking by the beach or on the boardwalk.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

plenty of space for parking and access to the beach.
As any other north shore beach on L.I. it is not soft sand, but pebbles.

“A Beautiful Park for Birding!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Traveled here in mid-October during the height of the migration season along the coast - saw lots of small birds including red-bellied woodpeckers, great cormorants, a great blue heron, cardinals, lots of blue jays, a gold finch, lots of warblers, and a few swans. The area is beautiful and the paths are clear, easy to travel, and very clean. There was a fee to enter the park but it was well worth it once I saw the size of this place! Lots of parking, a concession area along the beach, a golf course with a driving range, multiple walking trails, and fishing locations.

There were only two negatives for this experience: 1.) It would have been nice to have some clear maps of the entire park with all the field #s clearly labeled. 2.) The bathrooms along the 3/4 mile boardwalk that travels along the Long Island Sound could really use a make-over.... yuck!

Overall, for a hiking enthusiast, I found it to be a great trip - I thoroughly enjoyed the hikes and the views.

“Fun place for the weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

The park is really good for family and friends. There are a lot of entertainment there, which can meet everyone's needs. I personally had a wonderful time there in the summer, and would love to visit there later.
