Robert Moses State Park – Long Island

Robert Moses State Park is an ocean beachfront facility with a shoreline of nearly five miles (8 km). The park is at the westernmost point of Fire Island, located at the southern end of the Robert Moses Causeway and is easily accessible by car or from the Babylon train station with a bus connection. Swimming, boogie-boarding, surfing and surf-fishing are enjoyed by many beach-goers here. The park is closed from sunset to sunrise, so you will need an annual “star-gazing permit” to access the parking lot after hours (applies to Robert Moses Field 2). The park itself can then not be accessed, but stargazing will take place at the lot and the permit is required regardless of if you park a car or not. At the time of writing: $35 for state residents, $60 for out-of-state travellers.
