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

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.

This is a state run park. You need to make reservations well in advance for a camp site, approx. 9 months in advance to get a good site. Its right on the beach with many sand dunes to hike through. It does get crowded in the summer. Nights are cool so bring a sweatshirt or light jacket. Very relaxing and... More

Hither Hills is a beautiful place to go for a hike or walk along the water. There are many trails and sand dunes to visit. Watch out for theTicks! They were all over me in May, when we visited. I recommend a visit if you are looking for a nice outdoor activity in the Montauk area.

Spectacular wide white sandy beach. Not crowded. Warm water and fine surf. Better than most California beaches.

Hither Hills campground is clean, well run and is just one dune away from an incredible stretch of beach. It's also conveniently located to town, Montauk Point and other nearby parks with great views and some cool hikes. The campground has plenty of clean bathrooms, with flush toilets, sinks and showers. There is also a general store that sells most... More
