Nissequogue River State Park RC Airplane Flying Field

With a proper permit, you can fly your foam RC airplane at the Nissequogue River State Park. This park houses the abandoned remains of the Kings Park Pyschiatric Center as it was acquired by the state's historical preservation program at the turn of the centry. The cost of the permit is $40, and is accessible to fly at all times of the year. Many people believe the grounds are haunted, so your plane might be manipulated by the ghosts of tortured souls (..but probably not).You must be an AMA Member in order to get the permit. There are fees to enter the park, during park hours, so it might be worth it to buy the Empire Passport if you will be making repeated visits.

If you have any questions about permits regarding these parks, you can call the NYS Park permit office at the phone number: (631) 669-1000
