  • I love walking along this beach; watching the waves and seagulls. It's peaceful during the winter- loved that!
  • Great state park. You can camp, visit the beach, and go to a WPA-era pavillion all in the same place. During season, the beach is closed to dogs, but off-season, this place is where a lot of people bring their dogs to beach.
  • If you're a distance runner Rocky Neck State Park makes an outstanding base to do long runs out of. A few years ago the Mystic places Marathon took place. This was one of the best courses for running a marathon. Outstanding views fairly flat course excellent weather. You can do your long runs over parts of the course. You can start and finish your run from Rocky Neck State Park.
  • Very nice area for our off-season visit; beautiful beach with super soft sand. Too bad there was no swimming because of high bacteria. It was low tide which made a lot of sandbars visible--- I was still able to walk barefoot through the water. Very peaceful
  • Wow, Rocky Neck Srate Park is really nice. I particularly like this did you not charge to go there in the offseason. It is a very popular Campground and spring summer and fall and in the offseason it's a great place to go for walks go jogging and take your dog out for a run. This place is absolutely gorgeous
