Rockland Lake State Park's lake is located on a ridge of Hook Mountain above the west bank of the Hudson River. The park offers a huge 24,140 square foot swimming pool with diving boards--the pool is more than 10,000 square feet larger than an Olympic size pool! A kiddie pool is also available for young children. The park also offers picnic tables; grills, a car top boat launch dock, hiking trails with breath-taking views of the Hudson Valley, six tennis courts and the Rockland Lake State Park golf courses, featuring two 18 hole golf courses. Anglers can fish Rockland Lake for bass, perch and norlunge. Walkers, joggers, roller bladers, and bicyclists can enjoy the 3.2 mile non-motorized use paved trail around the lake.
Pets are not permitted from May to September 30. From October 1 to March 31, pets are permitted in the park but not on any of the paved walkways including the 3.2 mile path around the lake. Pets must be on a leash not to exceed 6' in length.
