Haverstraw Beach State Park is a component of the larger Rockland Lake State Park complex. The park is just north of the Rockland Lake golf course, on the east side of Route 9W. The Hook Mountain/Nyack Beach Bikeway runs through the park.
In 1780, American General Benedict Arnold and the British spy John André exchanged the plans to overtake West Point at Haverstraw Beach at this site. A stone marker identifies the place where Andre landed. This site, the location of an early town named Snedeker's Landing, is also known as the oldest shipyard in Rockland County.
