We just visited for an hour or two. Walked around and took pictures of the scenic views in every direction. The geese do seem very "productive," so watch where you step.

We paid $50 for a tent site and $10 for a bundle of wood (this is more expensive than all other parks in the area). We drove to the "campsites" and were appalled. The entire park is DISGUSTING. There is garbage covering the ground, and...More

This park could be very nice if it weren't for the goose poop everywhere. I know they are wildlife but they need to be removed. Maybe a dog or two could scare them away.

Croton Point is an absolutely beautiful park right on the Hudson. It's got a lot of different sections, including a swimming/beach area, plenty of fields, and great picnicking spots. There's a playground (might actually be more than one because it's so big) for the kids...More

Beautiful park, but nobody was on duty after 4:45 pm on a Friday - I got my gate card key on "check in" because it was up on a bulletin board. Unfortunately, that closed office was the only place to buy firewood and you are...More

Absolutely Gorgeous almost Island Park. Areas to picnic, nice area to walk and lovely playground. Not so great if it is windy and the bathroom isn't always open. There's supposed to be a nature center, but we never seem to catch it when its open.

We have always biked to this park. There is no fee if you walk or bike in. There is a beach, grills and a playground.
