Croton Point Park is a Westchester County park in the village of Croton-on-Hudson.

The park has several public attractions including: a miniature aircraft airport, boat launch, tent and RV camping, cabin rental, cross-country skiing, fishing, group picnicking, hiking and walking trails, a museum, nature study, pavilions, a playground, swimming, and a beach.

A substantial portion of the land on which the park is situated today was the site of a landfill, which was operated by the Westchester County government from 1927 to 1986. The landfill has since been capped off and restored to green space.

The park is also home to several historic sites such as a set of wine cellars from an old manor.

The park hosts a number of events each year, including the annual Hudson River Sloop Clearwater festival, the Croton Point Shindig, and Hudson River Eagle Fest.

  • We went there to camp. The sites are quite big which accommodates several tents. The facilities are a bit far which is inconvenient. The beach area is not the greatest but there is not a lot they can do except for the restroom facilities by the beach which were pretty nasty. Also, there is no enforcement of quiet time after 11 PM. There was a big group playing music and talking loud way past that. A few improvement to this place could make it so much better.
  • One of the better Westchester parks. Spent the day swimming at the beach. For non members it's $10 parking and $4 per person for swimming.
  • Great in that this is closest RV park to NYC, so that was helpful. But a typical county park, not much amenities and seems to have an significant amount of long term renters there based on view of things outside the campers
  • Nice picnic area! River water is dirty but people swim there. Would recommend to go there for your next weekend.
  • We camped here for almost 2 weeks over the summer. It is an excellent location if you are wanting to visit NYC. The train station is literally right outside the park and only a 45 minute ride into the city. We had a nice site with full hookups. The park itself is also beautiful and seems to have a lot to do. The restrooms were not very clean and there was no laundry facilities. Other than that we enjoyed it.
