Nyack Beach State Park reviews
I came with a friend to this park on a December weekday late afternoon. When I was here, admission was free. It can be hard to get parking on a weekend, but it was relatively empty on a weekday... more »
Wow oh wow!! I never knew I would stumble on this amazing location. It was quiet with people jogging and cycling on the walkway close to the beautiful ocean view!! Great adventure, great exercise... more »
The waterfront has a tiny beach like area with sand and the surrounding trees providing ample shade on the nearby picnic area which makes it an ideal place to just sit and chill with the family on a hot summer day. The road down to the waterfront was closed when we were there so it was super quite and serene. Parking was $6 and they didn't accept credit card, thumbs down for that.
A bit over crowded and people don't respect leash laws or even just personal space. Love the views and is super clean. Don't expect to have any privacy tho
