If you are wondering what is the best park to visit, go to Wildwood State Park in Wading River. It is great for camping, hiking, biking and hanging out at the beach.

Hiking is one of the first things I want to do there. Some of the trails will lead you right to Long Island Sound. You will love walking along the edges of the cliffs. It is beautiful.

I think the beach is one of the nicest around, even though the water’s edge is a little rocky. Wait until you are there at sunset, too. Beautiful.

The campsites even have a playground nearby, so you are never bored. You can’t camp there without a permit. If you like fishing, you can do that! In the winter you can go cross-country skiing.

It is located at 790 Hulse Landing Rd., Wading River. For more information online, just search for Wildwood State Park.
