Captree is a magical place. It is a state park so there is a (seasonal / weekend) parking charge (check it online) or admittance with an Empire State pass. There are two fishing piers available, along with a ait shop, restaurant, boat launch and gas dock. It's home to a fleet of Party (Open) fishing boats. If you don't want to actually go fishing you can walk the dock to buy fresh fish when the boats return.

Went fishing with grandchildren ages 2 months to 15 years. Everyone had a great time. We caught fluke and sea robins. The staff was helpful, would bait the rod if you wanted them to and filleted the fish upon request at the end of the trip. Look on the website for group rates. Rods can be rented for $3.00. Trip lasts for 3 hours and it is only 15 minutes or so from the pier. There were less fish caught than I remember being caught last year, but seemed like everyone left with some fish.

Captree State Park is a Long Island Treasure. The boat basin is a wonderful spot to relax and watch the world float by. You can watch the fishing boats come in with their catch.

Captree State Park is home to a large fishing fleet. You can charter a boat of chose a half or full day boat trip. There's a bait shop, concession stand and restaurant/bar. Restrooms are clean and well maintained. There's also a small beach for fishermen who prefer to remain on dry land.

Been living on LI my whole life, and this is one of my Happy Places. Captree State Park with the boat basin is a great place to visit, fish, crab, catch a party/charter boat, or just hang out!
