This 1300-acre park just west of Heather Hills Park has two good hiking trails: the 2-mile Oceanfront Nature Trail is on the ocean side of the park, just past Shipwreck Drive, and the 2-mile Promised Land trail (near the old fish meal factory) on the bay side off Napeague Meadow Road. While the latter is unspectacular, it offers nice wildflowers and views of Gardiners Island.

The Atlantic side of the park is often closed in summer to protect nesting piping plovers. The area has been designated an Important Bird Area (IBA) by the Audubon Society.
