This is a list of state parks and state historic sites in the U.S. state of New York. The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation offers an Empire Passport, a season pass that provides unlimited day use vehicle entry to most of New York's State parks and recreational facilities.[1]

Forest Preserve[edit]

The two largest parks in New York State are the Adirondack Park at six million acres (24,000 km²) and the Catskill Park at 700,000 acres (2,800 km2). They are managed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation; the Adirondack Park is also managed by the Adirondack Park Agency. Together, they comprise the Forest Preserve, properties that must be kept "forever wild" by Article 14 of the Constitution of the State of New York.
