NYC Day Trips – Rockland Lake State Park (Congers, NY)

Rockland Lake State Park, Valley Cottage, NY 10989, USA

From Fishing, swimming, boating and picnicking to tennis, and hiking trails this parkland will seem to almost have it all. Open year-round New Yorkled’s learned that there’s also sledding and cross country skiing in winter. Its location at very comfortable spot just off of route 9W is not far above the exit off of the Tappan Zee Bridge. Actually it’s a mere 6 miles along a very scenic rural road. Rockland Lake State Park is situated on Hook Mountain, NY.

Open year-round you’ll find at the park picnic tables, grills and boat rentals as well as plenty of photo taking opportunities along Rockland Lake’s rim. Yours truly spent enough time during a visit observing geese, ducks and a couple of swans. ‘and boy what a treat that was!! There’s a small fee mind you for access to the swimming pools of which there’s also one for the kiddies. There’s also a number of tennis courts and golf courses on hand. Considering the other locales nearby one wouldn’t regret one single bit a trip to this wonderful day-escape.

Getting there:

From NYC, make your way up along any route or interstate which’ll lead you onto the Tappan Zee Bridge. Stick to the right hand side of your crossing since you’ll be exiting on the right hand side so’s to enter upon 9W North. Follow 9W for approximately 6 miles until you come across the ‘big-enough’ Welcome Sign to Rockland Lake State Park….’presto! you’re there! Have fun and let’s be safe out there on the road!
