1. Robert Moses State Park offers five miles of ocean beach for swimming.
2. Lifeguards are on duty during summer months to ensure swimmer safety.
3. Swimming is only allowed when lifeguards are present due to strong currents and waves.
4. The park has four main fields, each with its own designated swimming area along the Atlantic Ocean coastline.
5. Field 5 provides access to Fire Island's wilderness beaches which also allow swimming under certain conditions.

The park offers a variety of boating options for visitors. There is a boat launch available, allowing individuals to bring and use their own watercrafts. Additionally, the marina within the park provides docking facilities for those who wish to moor their boats during their visit. Fishing enthusiasts can also take advantage of these amenities as fishing from both shorelines and boats are permitted in designated areas throughout the year.

Cyclists should always wear helmets and follow all safety rules while riding in high-traffic areas.
