We liked to be in the State Park a lot. Peaceful atmosphere, you can watch the birds and nature. Not a lot of people are there, so perfect for every day.

Sterling Forest State Park is a beautiful Park with an awesome lake. You can see all kind of birds, even some who are just in this area. The park is clean and neat, but not overly organized. Good adventure for a couple of hours.

Spent a little time at the Visitors' Center. It has a lot of historical and interesting geological facts about the area. There are clean, ample bathrooms for use. The small gift shop enables visitors to purchase apparel, mugs, stickers, kid activities, books, etc. There is...More

Located only an hour from New York City this amazingly beautiful park has everything for the family, Forest, Lakes, Wildlife, Hiking, Fishing and pleasant country roads. Not crowded and there is a visitor center that is well worth a stop.

Take the hike to the fire tower. Great views of surrounding area and Greenwood lake. On a real clear day you can see NYC in the distance. Another great hike is around Sterling lake. Enjoy!

About 4 1/2 miles. Entrance near the Visitor's Center pass briefly by a residential section to the West and a Environmental Research Center to the east. The hike was West to East registered having 21 flights on my phone. The blue markers were excellent.

Not on the paths but you can picnic by the visitor's center. They are concerned about bears and are strict about food and carry in and carry out.
