Heckscher State Park has everything, swimming, camping, fishing, playgrounds, ballfields, beaches, boat ramps, picnic areas, walking trails, you name it. You can see all sorts of wildlife walking around year-round. It's just a beautiful place to spend a day or even more if you're camping.

Wide open, well kept spaces. Love the free summer concerts. We last went to the LI Philharmonic concerts. There were literally hundreds of people there with blankets, food, candles and wine. Do as you like and enjoy the music under the stars!

I have been to many stae parks across the US and other nations. This one is just OK. Nothing special and not kept up all that well.
