A sunny Easter morning brought us to Lake Ronkonkoma County Park. I had driven by the beautiful lake but had never been there to visit.  Checking online, I discovered that Lake Ronkonkoma is the largest and deepest lake on Long Island, being 70 feet at its deepest. It is surrounded by scenic woods and has a handicapped-accessible playground, which is a wonderful addition.

The paved parking lot had many spaces available. There are eight designated handicapped-accessible. We checked out the playground first (see our separate listing for the James Malloy Memorial Playground) and the nearby restroom building, which was open. The multi-stall restrooms, have a very large handicapped-stall, wheelchair-accessible sinks, and a larger than usual, baby-changing station. 

I am happy to note that this park has more hand-sanitizer stations that I have seen at most.

Walking the paved paths was very easy. They are well cared for. We made our way to one of the beach areas, noting signs saying that swimming, or even wading, is not allowed. When I checked this out I discovered that the water has been off-limits since 2018 because of “algae bloom,” something that is apparently dangerous!  Considering how lovely the beach areas are, it’s a shame that this is the case.

We had a lovely walk along some of the paths, with the beautiful lake in sight. There are no benches except near the playground. Online, it says that one can walk completely around the lake. If that is so, we could not find how to do it. After trying to walk, we got back into our car and drove around the lake. We found several other beach areas, as well as a boat ramp, but there are residences between these areas. 

In spite of these things, this is a lovely place, with beautiful views. Also, if you have small ones with you, the playground is great!

If you are planning a visit, check on admission fees. We are not sure when they take effect.

Genrally, we at Destination:Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website,">, when planning visit to “know before you go,” In this case, we must tell you that this website was not particularly helpful. If you find a better informational site, please let us know.
