The Montauk lighthouse was commissioned by Pres. George Washington! A wonderful museum and gift shop as well as the opportunity to walk up the stairs of the Lighthouse! Also walk down to the base of the park and the stone filled beach - a fisherman's delight.

Beatiful Lighthoude and view. Went the day before the Hurricane in 2013. It's a long drive but a great area and view. The staff was Informed and tried to be interesting about the lighthouse. Not a disrespect to them, just to me and light houses.

We thought you could go from the lighthouse and walk along the side sound and back down to the highway through trails rather than stay along the beach and main roads. That really wasn't the case and we got really lost in the thicket of the woods and there were ticks! Just stick to the shore and it's beautiful!

Beautiful hiking and overlooks. Make sure you bring your tick spray. They do have a tick problem in the area.

There are a lot of hiking path. also a trail for bikers. We just enjoyed the view and the silence. There are also a couple of Viewing Points. Stop there - it's worth it

Beauty abound at this State park. A nominal fee for parking and entry into the lighthouse. Bring lunch with you and make an afternoon out it...

We flew in from New Jersey, with a small plane. We landed in the private Montauk airport, which is very close to the beach, and spent part of the afternoon there. We walked for a few hours around the park and along the beach. The park is very well organized, where you find all necessities for staying the whole day.... More

Beautiful view of the ocean from this area. Went before tourist season, so was able to take good pictures.

It looks great here anytime of year. Its a long but nice drive there with a couple overlook pull offs on the way. The hours for the tour are a pain though plus its over priced.

To come here is to come to The End. As others have said, don't let the weather deter you, because this lighthouse holds an attraction to its visitors, even in foggy conditions. Granted, you won't be able to see the horizon, but watching the fog rolling through is a treat in itself. Come here with your family, with your friends,... More
