  • We’ve just wrapped up a wonderful week of peace and calm at the Hecksher State Park cottages. We stayed in Cottage 1, a 2-bedroom unit, which is on the far right of the lot. Prior to our arrival...

  • Good park especially if you live close. Has a ton more potential though. I'd love to see them reopen new refurbished pool area and offer a better beach experience. Has disk golf course which is unique to long Island. It is the southern terminus for the 32 mile greenbelt trail and stretches to North shores sunken meadow Park. I've see cricket games and a remote control airfield for model planes. There is tent camping as well as cabins to rent and even a boat launch.
  • This is an absolutely beautiful park. The cabins are incredible and right on the water. The cabin was well equipped and very clean.Out of the many New York state parks I've been to, this has to be my favorite. The check in process was also the best experience. Phil was extremely nice and everyone else in the office was so friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back!
