Connetquot River State Park Preserve is a conservation area in the Town of Islip in Suffolk County, New York in the USA.

The park offers hiking, fishing, a bridle path, nature trails, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, a museum, and recreation activities. It also contains the site of the Southside Sportsmens Club District, which has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1973.[2][3]

There is a vehicle entrance fee to enter the park by automobile and a permit required for horseback riding within the park. The permit can be obtained free by writing to the Long Island State Parks in Babylon, NY. Pedestrians can enter free-of-charge at gates at multiple points along the park's perimeter. The park is a carry-in carry-out facility. There are no garbage bins along the trails. Additionally there are no picnic facilities or play areas for children. The park provides opportunities for fishing brook, brown and rainbow trout.
