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

Hither Hills campground is a beautiful place to camp. We managed to secure a campsite for Memorial Day weekend, despite the warnings that it sells out months in advance. The latest you can check in is 9:00pm, but due to traffic we arrived at 9:20 (after calling them a few times on our way) they were gracious enough to stay... More

This is a great place to camp - go online and get a spot and you can rent an RV (the companies will deliver them to the site) and spend a week on the beach falling asleep to the sound of the waves for a fraction of what folks are paying down the road. Great family atmosphere, some entertainment for... More

beautiful beach campground with showers.... with ocean sounds 24/7 ... my only complaint is it is rediculously over priced. $56 per night in the fall for a pop up camper which is the only time you can camp there as chances are you can't get a reservation during the summer months... I believe it is by lottery..... Town of Montauk... More

Just spent a few nights at the campground and walking around the park. While Montauk is ridiculously busy during the height of summer season, in fall it is a lovely getaway. Montauk tends to stay a bit warmer than the rest of New York, supposedly (I haven't confirmed this) due to the closeness of the warm Gulf Stream waters. An... More

I have only used this place in the fall when most of the stuff is closed. However the beach is nice, clean and a great place to take a long walk with your honey. Bathrooms are open and clean. Plenty of parking and a small playground for children.

If you live on an island you know it must have an end. The end is just the beginning to the best vacation of your life. Pristine beaches, amazing sunsets, and romantic moon rises. I write this review from the perspective of a seasoned camper accustomed to the lifestyle since I was three. Starting in a tent and now graduated... More
