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

Fun trip from CT to Montauk. We took the ferry from New London, then to Shelter Island, then Sag Harbor. A low stress way to travel. The campsites are just one sand dune from the beach. Nicely spaced, few trees. Showers and restrooms are clean. Beach is wide and sandy, one of the best we've seen in New England. Montauk... More

We have stayed at Hither Hills over the past thirty years with children and groups of friends. This was our first visit in ten years. Things were about the same. But camping there,everyone is friendly, the beach is beautiful and no internet or tv! We love it out there!

Adorable little park with nice, easy walking trails (take your parents!) and a well-maintained beach. Not right in the heart of Montauk so not overrun with the horrible yuppie crowd, who seem to want to go where they can access food and alcohol.

Being Long Islanders our entire lives, my wife and always try to make it out to Montauk at least once a year. Great beach with great facilities. Never too crowded during the week and an easy drive into town after for dinner. One of the best beaches on all of Long Island.
