Rocky Point was a station on the Wading River Extension on the Port Jefferson Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. This abandoned station was just east Broadway between King Road & Prince Road, along what is now access for Long Island Power Authority power lines.

History

Rocky Point Station was originally built in 1898 during the extension of the Port Jefferson Branch to Wading River and was once slated to continue eastward and rejoin the Main Line at either Riverhead or Calverton.

The line east of Port Jefferson, which included the Rocky Point station, was abandoned in 1938, and the station house became a lumber yard which still survives to this day. The right-of-way is now owned by the Long Island Power Authority and used for power lines, but there are plans to create a rail trail for bicycling, running, and walking. The Thurber lumber yard no longer exists.
