New York State and National Parks

Explore the waterfalls, beaches, and mountain peaks of New York's parks.

From the sandy shores of Long Island to mighty Niagara Falls, New York State is home to more than 200 State Parks and Historic Sites, where beautiful views and outdoor adventures await.

Whether you climb the lighthouse for a bird's eye view at Rock Island Lighthouse State Park in the Thousand Islands, walk the trails to waterfalls at Watkins Glen State Park in the Finger Lakes, go hot air ballooning over the "Grand Canyon of the East" at Letchworth State Park, ride the ferry to Governors Island, hike the majestic Adirondack High Peaks, paddle the tropical blue waters of Green Lakes State Park, sample the healing waters of Saratoga Spa State Park, or just explore your local outdoor retreat, there's always something new to experience.

Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the state parks system and participate in the Centennial Challenge to win prizes! Also, be sure to download the New York State Parks Explorer from the Google or Apple app stores to enhance your visit and get your National Parks Annual Pass for unlimited access nationwide or the Empire Pass for unlimited day access to New York State parks.
