Sunken Meadow State Park

The unique geography of Sunken Meadow State Park, which borders Long Island Sound, supports a broad variety of vegetation and fauna. The three miles of beach meet the steep, glacier-formed bluffs at the western end of the seashore. A man-made dam separates the tidal flats from the park’s brackish watercourse and marshes. South of the plains are acres of undeveloped, thickly forested undulating hills. There are a variety of activities accessible, including swimming in Long Island Sound, hiking six miles of trails, including the northern beginning of the Suffolk County Greenbelt Trail, biking, horseback riding, picnicking, fishing, and cross-country skiing. Three 9-hole golf courses, a driving range, and a putting green are all located in the park. Kayaking at Field 3 (free parking) with a permit

Things to do


You can choose from a wide selection of water in New York State. Boaters can go on a relaxing cruise, go fishing in their favourite cove, or go on a daring expedition to discover new waters. Among the many natural wonders in New York are the Atlantic Ocean, the estuary of Long Island Sound, and the St. Lawrence Rivers. Enjoy Lake Champlain, two Great Lakes, and eleven Finger Lakes. Visit the Great Lakes and Hudson River by way of the New York State Barge Canal. Paddle hundreds of more streams, lakes, rivers, and ponds in New York State Parks in addition to dozens of crystal-clear, unpolluted Adirondack lakes.

Things to do


In New York State parks, there are several places to swim during the summer, from clear lakes to Olympic-sized pools. Our designated swim sites are available for your use, and swimming is a pleasant and healthy way to explore our parks.

Things to do


All hunters in New York State are required to finish one or more state-approved sportsman’s education courses before applying for a hunting licence. All hunters shall report the sex, date, and county of any deer, turkey, or bear taken. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation uses this reporting system to monitor the hunting programme and permitted harvest as well as to create statewide population estimates for certain species. Hunters are ardent environmentalists, contributing funds to the preservation of wildlife species through licence fees and taxes on rifles and ammunition. Furthermore, the state’s economy benefits from hunting to the tune of almost $1.5 billion.
