Brookhaven State Park is a state park in Ridge and Wading River, New York. The park was established in 1971, and was a former segment of Brookhaven National Laboratory.

Brookhaven State Park ran along the east side William Floyd Parkway north of Whiskey Road, and between NY 25 and NY 25A. The Brookhaven Volunteer Fireman's Museum also exists on the south side of the park along NY 25, and the Port Jefferson-Westhampton Beach Highway was once proposed to run through the southwest corner of the park. Brookhaven State Park lies west of the John M. Schiff Scout Reservation[1] and southwest of Wildwood State Park in Wading River, northeast of the Ridge Conservation Area(formerly Middle Island State Park) in Ridge, and east of the Rocky Point Natural Resources Management Area, which spans from Middle Island to Rocky Point.

On May 17, 2010 New York State closed this park along with 55 other state parks due to budget cuts[citation needed].
