The trails were very good and easy to navigate with just a simple screenshot of the trail map. One thing to note is the beach at the end is very rocky and not sandy so it’s not very enjoyable. Good drive to the park, pretty easy hikes. Good spots to stop and take breaks.

How one can give bad review for a park that has to comply with the stupid Covid19 rules. We were there same day and had great day. This park is awesome. Beach very dramatic. Great great place to spend all day. Just arrive earlier. Parking is limited

We checked the Internet before driving to Caumsett State Park and it was open, as NY State Parks should be, but on the way there we drove by the Lloyd Harbor police station and they had an electronic sign saying ALL PARKS ARE CLOSED AND NO PARKING ON THE SIDES OF STREETS. It’d taken an hour to get there so we thought we’d go the last few minutes and take a look. Parking on the sides of the beach streets had clearly been going on for years, there was ample space to make it safe, but a police officer was there giving tickets to some people. As we drive up to the park entrance we can see a park attendant seeming to wave traffic out of the park, but there were no cars coming from the park and the entry side of the street was closed with a sign saying PARK CLOSED. Why was he pretending to wave traffic out of the park? On the way back we saw an officer stop by some people parked on the beach side of the road and then drive on. Why were the other people getting tickets, but not these people? We drove down to a beach area further down. Maybe we could park there and just take a walk. However, on arrival a police officer told us although it’s usually open to the public, for the remainder of the year it’s open only for residents of the town of Huntington, which Lloyd Harbor is part of. I brought up the State Park being closed and the officer immediately became very defensive, saying “This isn’t part of the State Park! It was full by 10:00 this morning, I know, I’ve been here all day!” If that was the case why do the police have a sign saying all parks are closed? Why are they only giving tickets for parking on the side of the street to non-residents? Why is the park attendant pretending to wave cars out of the park? Huntington is clearly a very wealthy town that likes its State Park and funding but uses the police force to make sure outside visitors aren’t allowed. NY State should take a look at them.

A very fun trail. When we got to the beach we did the first middle part of the trail totally on the beach. Look at my recording if you were wondering where we went. It was a wonderful wonderful hike.

Trail is partially paved which is nice. Off trail sections were fun, adventurous and a bit challenging which I liked. Amazing views of the water, will definitely be coming back.
