Rock Neck State Park
The beautiful, gently sloping, soft sandy beach, picnic areas, train watching, diverse trail systems and salt marsh viewing platforms make this park ideal for families. Try crabbing or fishing. Look for ospreys, cranes, and herons or other waterfowl. Rocky Neck provides something for all members of the family.
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
Nice beach. Rocks and jetty to climb on. Can get pretty crowded on weekends. Trails, camping, bbq. $13 entrance fee for CT residents, $23 non residents. Crabbing on jetty.
Nice beach, it is a little rocky in spots. There are public restrooms on both sides of the beach. If you stay on the side of the beach with a small steam closer to Giants Neck Rd, the beach is flatter and there are some shallow sheltered waters that younger kids can play in.
