Blydenburgh County Park
Richly forested hills and valleys at the headwaters of the Nissequogue River, rowing and fishing on lovely Stump Pond, casual strolls through the Blydenburgh Farm and New Mill Historic District featuring a grist mill. These are but a few of the attractions of Blydenburgh County Park. This 627 acre park is open year-round to Suffolk County residents and their guests. Horseback riders may ride or trailer their mounts to Blydenburgh to utilize an extensive bridle path system and practice ring. Freshwater fishing for pumpkinseed sunfish, large-mouth bass, perch and bluegill is permitted at Stump Pond between sunrise and sunset. New York State freshwater fishing laws apply. Rowboat rentals are generally available from mid-May to Labor Day. Use the southern (Veteran's Memorial Highway) entrance for these activities. Hikes through Blydenburgh are led on a regular basis by the Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference, whose headquarters are located in one of the historic district houses.
Troop 71 last hiked at Blyndenburgh on March 22, 2015.
NOTE: Only adults registered with the troop as committee members or assistant scoutmasters are permitted to camp with the troop.
