Croton Point Park, Croton on Hudson

4.0
#5 of 13 in Parks in Westchester County
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.

  • It would be nice if all of the park signs and website info was updated to say that it's actually $10 to park with a park pass in addition to $4 per adult for entrance. Nearly $20 for two people to go to a beach with barely any amenities? Sorry, looks like I won't be going here anymore. (TIP: Maybe give out wristbands as people are entering instead of having workers with attitudes hound you while you're on the beach.) Edit: Rating adjusted after we were able to talk to park rangers and have our $5 refunded.
  • Had an excellent time camping. Tent spots were very spacious.
  • Bathrooms are very messy but otherwise large beautiful park. Towards the end of the evening, trash bins tend to overflow and are unsightly.
  • Nice view and public restroom. People jogging and playing sports
  • This is a nice piece of land but unfortunately like most things run by Westchester county they over charge and under deliver. The beach is nice for the Hudson river but the old beach building is falling down and has been in disrepair for years. They put up a trailer and porta pottys instead of fixing the building. This place would be a gold mine if they let a third party rent it. Same thing happened with the pool and pool house on the same property. They built a beautiful pool and building about 10 years ago. Now it's closed and crumbling. Third party vendor could have done something nice. Westchester county just run it into the ground. Main office for RV and tent campsites has 3 workers. One on the computer browsing the internet the other on her iPad. Basically a show no work job. $50 a night for RV. $900 per month for long term campers. $15 for the dump station. A few RVs had junk all around them. The dump station had garbage strewn all over. The lid for the dump station is broken and rusty. The maintenance buildings are old brick looks like the CCC days. They are boarded up with again a office trailer for the workers.
