Come here to enjoy beautiful view, especially during a fall sunset in October. The park also offers unique rocky beach good for walking, parking, even restrooms.

Its an incredible place for a walk! The trails are amazing and if you have a chance, just sit on the rocks along the bay, it's so peaceful! Great stop!

I really enjoyed this beautiful park. When you get down to the water there are so many beautiful places to admire. Whether it be from the ocean, the rock formation or the birds that take home to that area. The people were very friendly and many of them had dogs walking with them. It was a great park to go alone or with your family. If you have found my review helpful please give me a thumbs up 👍 and feel free to follow me for future reviews.
Wolfe's Neck State Park is fabulous! It's very easy to get to, the drive through the Freeport countryside is very scenic. I really like this park; it's a very relaxing walk through the woods. There are several tree varieties, and many different types of fungi as well. Some of the trees are quite large, and I hope others appreciate them as much as I do. There are paths down to the water's edge, where you can walk along the rocky shoreline. Plenty of people bring their dogs, and there are places along the trails to sit on wooden benches. There's a small island across from some benches that is home to an Osprey nest, where you can observe Ospreys when they are in the area. A few places on the trail have steps carved out of stones, but I wouldn't call the majority of the trails strenuous. It is a popular place to visit. I believe there is a public restroom, but I haven't used it so I'm not sure if it has plumbing or is a vault toilet. Update: the restroom is plumbed, but I also saw an outhouse for use during the off-season.
