There is no way that the vacancies can fill in one minute on the weekends. The 50 vacancies that become available each Friday and Saturday are not revealed until 9am. You can't complete steps to the booking process without knowing which site you are and completing all the steps takes longer than a minute. This whole idea that everyone has... More

If your family gets a kick out of tumbling down dunes, this is a great spot! Access the hiking trails on the North side of Montauk as opposed to the South side, and you will find more park in its natural state. The trails are well marked and come out onto the walking dunes' buried forests. At the base are... More

We have been to Hither Hills in the past and always did tent camping which was wonderful. The campground is right over the dunes from the beach. This year we did something different. We rented a 5th wheel from rentmycamper.com it was great! The whole family enjoyed it.

This is an excellent and well-maintained NYS campground I have stayed at this time of year (off and on) for a few decades. Since it is unique in that you are sleeping adjacent to an ocean beach, the reservations are gone early in the state's camping cycle. Nothing is as nifty to a country family than to be right on...

The first night I camped here I saw the sickest meteor I have ever seen! It was like something from a movie. Great place to camp if there is a meteor shower. Clear sky with a good view.

This is a great place to camp! Everything is well kept, and you are steps from the beach! The town is only a few miles away, you can pick up extra food at the local IGA market. Once we woke up we were casting our poles into the surf a few hundred feet from our tent. This is our second... More

The only part of the park we went to was Walking Dunes which is not in the main area of the park. I chose to visit it due to the write up in the Montauk Visitors guide, but oddly enough it seems that they don't want this place to be found. Do not go into the main entrance of the... More

We are novice campers, in comparison with some of the others camping at Hither Hills. While we have tried unsuccessfully to get a campsite during the prime summer months, we have only been lucky enough to reserve a site in September for the past three years. Regardless, we had a great time. The people are all very friendly and the... More

Facilities and beach are great, however when we were there a group of partiers were in the campsites across from us. Complaining to the Park Police was futile as was talking to camp personnel.These groups partied till 4:30 in the morning, loudly ,and not a thing was done. The next night was the same thing, and I ended up taking... More
