Here are some local places to stay with an easy drive to Heckscher State Park
1) The Marriot Residence Inn Long Island/Courthouse Complex: This is very close to the park, about a 10 minute drive.
2) Hilton Garden Inn: Islip Airport: About 15-18 minutes from the park
3) Clarion Hotel And Conference Center: About 15-18 minute ride to the park
4) Hampton Inn Islandia: 18-20 minutes from the park
There are lots of other choices for Hotels within 20-30 mintues of Heckscher State Park. I listed a just a few so that you’ll be mor likely to run into other windsurfers attending the event. My fist pick would be the Marriot by the courthouses. It’s right outside the park!!!
