Southaven County Park

Victory Ave., Yaphank, NY
Get Directions

This 1,356-acre park is quite popular with large groups of picnickers during the summer. However, there are plenty of trails away from the main picnic areas above the old horse barn that you can enjoy with your dog. Just follow one of the leafy trails into the pine/oak forest. The trails are not well marked, but they curve into each other, so it’s hard to get lost. There are also several very large open fields in the park. One word of caution: The park includes a skeet-shooting operation that is active on weekends, so noise-sensitive and gun-shy dogs should not go there then. The County collects vehicle use fees on weekends from Memorial Day Weekend until Labor Day.
