It seems like I just took the snow tires off my car, and already Memorial Day Weekend is just days away! When it arrives this coming weekend, it's the "Unofficial Start Of Summer". And with that, the New York State Parks will open. Here are the details.

According to

"From the shores of Long Island to the mighty Niagara Falls, New York's 180 state parks offer countless opportunities to explore your natural environment, escape from the grind of the everyday and experience exciting new adventures. Beaches, boat launches, hiking trails, campsites, and golf courses all await you!"

To find out more about a New York State Park near you, hours of operation, directions, facilities, etc...just visit and select or enter the name of a state park that you're interested in.
