Croton Point Park, Croton on Hudson
(4/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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 didn't yet stay at the camp, but the park is a very nice stroll, beautiful views over the Hudson River and very nice amenities such as a playground for the little ones. Very good spot for a quick stroll.
  • Love this park. Great Hudson River views and open spaces. Even a campground. Dogs must be leashed, but we saw many friendly dogs running loose and playing while under the scrutiny of their humans. Ample playground equipment for the little ones. Restroom facilities and porta-potties abound. The only setback was that the beach was littered with debris and difficult to walk on. Swimming was totally out of the question.
  • Large park with few children playgrounds and beach with lifeguards in summer. In summer months there is charge for parking. At top there is a camping ground with large Olympic size swimming pool. You can rent huts at the park headquarters near the entrance. Some RV campers park there from May to October and make it there home. At the very end of the campground area there is a great place to view the Hudson River and see all the way down to the Tappan Zee bridge. Note that going down to beach at that point is VERY steep and helps to use the rope that people put there.
  • 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.
  • Perfect, is 10 Bucks from open until 5PM. Very small beach but nice quite area with fishing.
