Doodletown was an isolated hamlet in the Town of Stony Point Rockland County, New York, United States. Purchased by the Palisades Interstate Park Commission during the 1960s, it is now part of Bear Mountain State Park and a popular destination for hikers, birdwatchers, botanists, and local historians. It is located north of Jones Point; west of Iona Island; and southeast of Orange County. The former settlement is now a ghost town.

Members of the first family to settle in Doodletown during the 18th Century, French Huguenots whose name was anglicanized to "June," were also the very last to leave it in the 1960s.
