Robert Moses State Park in upstate New York is located partly on the mainland and partly on Barnhart Island. Visitors reach the park through a tunnel under the Eisenhower Lock of the St. Lawrence River. The park is spacious, home to a large variety of flora and fauna and offers a multitude of recreational opportunities, including wooded campsites and cabins, a marina and boat launch, some of the best fishing in the Northeast, picnic areas, a swimming beach, tennis courts and a year round nature center. A friend of EarthSky shared the following: “Close to town, great views, great area and no hunting forever wild area with tons of wildlife make this a jewel of a place to visit. A new nature center and hydroelectric dam and visitor’s centre make this place a go to day or night. Also there is the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Locks where you can watch big ships steam through and have the experience of your life here.”
