Lakes & Waterways

Being so close to the ocean has more benefits than just white sandy beaches. Suffolk County waterways and lakes invite you to enjoy a wealth of water sports adventures. Bring your own or rent a rowboat, canoe or kayak for a day on our scenic water or search for good spots on the banks of the many Long Island lakes and fish the day away.

These Long Island waterways and lakes also offer both relaxation and inspiration to those wanting to get outside in Suffolk County for hiking, biking or horseback riding in one of our many state parks. Our lakes and waterways, combined with the wooded areas and sandy beaches, make Suffolk County the ideal landscape for those seeking any kind of outdoor adventure.
