Loved the place but it took me five years to get in!!! Something is up here because I have been trying to book the campground for over five years. I got in this year by luck since I got someone's cancelled site. The place is stunning....lots of silly rules:( but you are on the beach and it's breathtaking.....would like to... More

No dogs allowed. That stinks. Montauk was always a dog friendly place and this park has way too many rules. Campers right on top of one another just like every where else.

Reservation was difficult to get. We rented a camper for the week. There are no electric or water hookups, so we had to be conservative. There is water on site. They allow the use of a generator for several hours in the morning and several hours at night. The grounds were clean and bathrooms/showers were acceptable. The staff was professional... More

When you finally find a trail map, there are some great hikes. Turn into the recycling center off the Montauk Highway. On the right just as you pull in is a small post with a box holding trail maps. Not sure why it is so hard and wouldn't normally dawn on us to try the recycling center until someone cued... More

We have been going to Montauk every June for the past 7 years. The first 5 years, we stayed at the wonderful East Deck Family Motel, which sadly has been sold and is being developed. Last year, we tried out Atlantic Terrace which I will review under separate. Let's just say it was no East Deck. This year we finally... More

I went to visit my daughter at Hither Hills campsite. Great location in Montauk for sure!! Nice grounds, clean environment...but, no campfires!! no beach bonfires!! really?? what's the point? only bonus is the beach location. In my opinion no campfire of any kind takes away from camping all together. The rules are too strict. 1 car per site, the sites... More

There are a few trails to hike here as well as a camping section (that we haven't visited). The trails are well maintained and marked well. The moving dunes are beautiful. The view from the top is amazing!

I wouldn't normally go to Hither Hills if I'm staying in town. However, if you want to get another day at the beach and have to check out of your hotel, why not head over to Hither Hills, enjoy the day for $10 (if you don't have a state park pass) and then in the end take a nice hot... More

Great location - of that you'll get no argument from me. Bathrooms were clean. However, I'm not a fan of the open space camping style as I prefer trees and a little privacy. They charged me $58 for the night which blew my mind. I've never paid that much for a campground.
