Road Trip | Wildwood State Park


Blogging often compels me a lot of time that is why I cannot publish more often. Even though I do not work, I have to go to school daily, go to the gym and I am a homemaker. However, I love to share my good experiences online.

Last Saturday I went to Wildwood State Park, it is a camping, park and beach in Riverhead, New York. Riverhead is a town within Suffolk County, New York, on the north shore of Long Island. From my house in Queens, it takes a little bit more than one hour travelling by car. Wildwood State Park is a 767-acre (3.10 km2) and includes a beach on Long Island Sound. In addition, the beach is particularly beautiful, because it is a shingle beach.

Because it is a state park, you have to pay to get inside or to camp. The beach closes at the dusk. I like to go there with umbrella, chairs, and mat to enjoy the day. Despite the fact that they have a small restaurant, I always like to have my own healthy food because they sell fries, pizza and these kind of garbage.


Since it is a shingle beach, there is not a big crow. Pebbles are not comfortable to lay down in or to walk on. In addition, they allow fishing, and some spots have a disgusting fish smell.




I have been to this park several times, in all the seasons. I love to go there with my guests because I especially cherish to see the sunset on the beach. It is enchanting and when the sky is open, it allows us to take beautiful photos.



The water is colder than the average in Long Island Sound. However, if it is hot you can go inside, of course, it is better to immerge in the water as faster as possible, to avoid suffering.

On the other side of the beach, it has a hill and the lifeguards do not let people to go there because it is somewhat unsafe.


The camping is very organize and clean. The restrooms and showers are modern and good enough for being public. They wash the showers cabin daily. The sites are full of shares (from the trees) and they are big enough to give you some privacy.

I reserved my sport very close to the bathroom, so that I can have comfort when I want to use it.

Our spot, our tent and our tent.

At night, I love to light the torches, feel the forest smell blended with firewood. My husband also light our vegan barbecue.

Vegan pizza, onions and vegan burger.


The only thing that I do not like from this place is that they do not allow cats. I would be happier if I could have gone with Penélope, my cat.


Riverhead also has more attractions such as Walmart, Splish Splash Water Park and Tanger Outlet.
