At Indian Island County Park in Riverhead, you can hike, camp, picnic and kayak where the North and South forks meet and the Peconic River opens into Flanders Bay.

It’s a picturesque spot where you can explore what was once the ‘island,’ a remote area now connected to the mainland by a sandy causeway.

Native American artifacts and a burial ground have been uncovered at the 275-acre site, which was also used for a large duck farm operation in the 1900s.
