Hempstead Lake State Park is a state park located in West Hempstead, Nassau County, New York in the United States. The park is one of three state parks located within the Town of Hempstead. There is a quick-access entrance at exit 18 from the Southern State Parkway.

The park contains three ponds for fishing and is stocked with several varieties. Wooded picnic areas provide shade.

The park offers picnic tables with pavilions, tennis courts, a playground, playing fields, recreation programs, hiking, biking, a bridle path, fishing, ice fishing, ice skating, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and a boat launch.

At one time, its water resources were tapped to supply water to Brooklyn Waterworks. The Southern State Parkway was built over the aqueduct that moved the water to Brooklyn.
