Outdoor Activities

Plenty of birds and fish are exactly what you get here at this state park. In fact, Huntington claims to be one of the finest bird watching sites on the East Coast. In addition to providing birders with thrills, it has a freshwater lagoon, a salt marsh, two nature trails, camping sites, cabins and of course the Atlantic coast. The boardwalks extend into the marsh to give visitors an up-close look at wildlife, and people can fish (permit required) from the pier with free rental equipment. This is also the site of Atalaya Castle, the summer home of sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington.
