  • Off season the roads are plowed so you can walk the three upper loops, and the lower park too. Very few folks are there, so it is quite nice to be alone in nature. I often go with a friend, but feel c...  more »

  • Really enjoyed a visit to this park - a smaller gorge than some other parks in this area of NY state however equally as beautiful and much, much less crowded. Arrived after the booth had closed on a w...  more »

  • Being winter, the gorge trails were all closed but we could walk around and see a little bit of the park. There are a lot of picnic tables and grills all around the easily walkable areas of the park. The swimming pool looks like it would be great in the summer! Even in the cooler temperatures there were several people walking and hanging out around the park.
  • My favorite park good trails for hiking be prepared to go up lots of stairs
  • The campsites were a bit close together but that's somewhat to be expected with state parks. Our site backed right up to the brook so we took the kids down there for some hiking and playing. The playground is big with plenty to do despite being busy. The rest of the park was nice including the swimming area. We'll definitely return in years to come.
  • I have visited Stony Brook State Park for family reunions nearly every year since I was a very young child. (Over 25 years) I have some very fond memories of swimming in the icy cold pools, wading up stream, but new visitors beware!, this is not allowed any more, and a hefty fine will be imposed upon you by the park rangers. Hiking is fantastic, the falls and natural shale-stone gorges are amazing. Picnic areas are abundant and there are even campsites available. I give it 4 stars because the rules for swimming have become a lot more stricter even within the past 3 years. We couldn't even go under the mini falls between the shallow and the deeper swim areas. Disappointed. Otherwise the facilities for picnics and other events are great!
  • Great Creek hiking and waterfall viewing. Some of the best in NYS.
