GETTING THERE
Rockland Lake State Park is about 45 min North of NYC, off the NY State Thruway (Rt I-87). There is no public transportation to the park.

Please read through these directions completely before starting your drive:

Rockland Lake State Park is a big park, by far the easiest way to navigate to Race-Day Central is to start out by using this google map link which will take you to the northern park entrance off of Route 9W (at Lake Road). Alternatively, you can enter the following address into any GPS, which will take you to the same park entrance:

972 Route 9W, Congers, NY 10920

Then, immediately after turning into the park, make your first right turn towards Parking Field 5. follow the road down for 1 mile (pass Parking Field 6), Parking Field 5 will be on your left. Race-Day Central will be between on the grass between the parking lot and the lake loop pathway.

Please note that the southern entrance off of Route 9W is also at "Lake Road" (we know... it's totally confusing), that's why we recommend using the link or address above, then follow the written directions the last mile.

If you are driving from points south of Rockland Lake, most GPSs will try to take you through the southern park entrance off of Route 9W, and the road leading to Parking Field 5 from this entrance is CLOSED. That's why we recommend using the first link (or address), then follow the written directions.

DO NOT type "Rockland Lake State Park" into your GPS, you'll end up in the wrong part of the park at the north end of the lake, 1-1/2 miles away from the race!

IMPORTANT: you must enter any parking lot inside the park BEFORE 8AM to avoid being charged the $8 NYS Parks imposed vehicle fee.

If Parking Field 5 is full, backtrack (go North) 3/4 mile to Parking Field 6.
