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.

For $10. parking you get a huge beach at a clean and well maintained state park with mikes of trails. Get there early in summer as lot fills up fast.

We wanted to check out this park for future camping. The person at the gate was totally unhelpful and somewhat rude. Very disappointing. We just wanted to see possible sites but we were totally dismissed and turned away! Shocking that a State park employee would behave in this manner.

Loved spending the day here. Friendly enviornment, excellent facilities and very clean. If you're on the area, don't pass this beach by.

No question to us as a family, this State Park beach was hands down better than the famous Coopers beach managed by the municipality of Easthampton. Why? Better waves due to beach shape where Coopers crashed down Hilther Hills allowed for better body surfing. Amenities, showers, etc. much better and larger. Beach quality and beauty I would argue identical, save... More

Met my camping buddies and spent the day at the beach. Beautiful day, great facility. So happy that I had an Empire Pass and didn't have to pay to park. Well worth the investment.

We went to the beach for the day. It is $10 to park in the parking lot. There is a lot at the top and also a main lot at the bottom. The main lot has a snack shop and a general store. Both locations have bathrooms, changing rooms and showers. The lifeguards are only by the bottom lot, so... More

Spent a lovely day here. Camping facilities looked cramped -- lots of RVs very close to each other. But probably worth it. Gorgeous beach, great water, calm crowd.

During low season (typically before mid-June), fires are allowed at your campsite. However, you must bring your own fire ring. Everyone there had a steel bucket (about $20 from any hardware store). There weren't any actual fire rings. You really MUST have a bucket due to the wind, don't bring just a fire ring. During high season, camp fires are... More
