great public beach

Smith Point is a great Public beach. At night enjoy great local music, cocktails and dance. Its clean, well potroled by rangers. Great fun worth the ride up William Floyd

This is a beautiful beach for a day trip but I would strongly recommend anyone to avoid the campground. The facilities are poorly maintained and the campsites so tight together the campground has a parking lot feeling. Yet what drove me to write this review was our awful experience with the management. My family and I were camping there for... More

This beach is a fun place to visit because during the day there is the ocean to keep the kids entertained & on some evenings in the summer, there are different bands at the Beach Hut for the adults.

15$ to park. Incredibly ridiculous-Disney charges less for parking!! Not worth the money. Stick with fire island! Will never return here.

I've camped out here a few times and look forward to another run soon. There are many sites where you have a view of the beach with the waves rolling in. I never tried for those and last week some of those sites were unoccupied. I was surprised. It's still early in the season but, wow! That was spectacular. Very... More

The incident is chronicled in online videos, pictures, news stories and email accounts. It's a truly humble testament to remembering the ill-fated airline travelers crossing the Atlantic for all different reasons. Most impressive is the international array of citizen-represented flags with the ocean waves heard in the background.

Give me your hand. Smith point county park always makes me sing. A beautiful long island south shore beach can't be beat.

Smith Point Beach is amazing!!! Every year I purchase a parking pass and I am there quite often. The beach is beautiful. There is not a long walk from the parking lot to the sand. The lifeguards do an outstanding job protecting everyone. In addition to the ocean, The Beach Hut sells food, drink and spirits. The Mudslides are to... More

Great beach and boardwalk with facilities for summer fun for all ages. Great night spot for everyone to enjoy with live music and good food at reasonable prices. Free parking for seniors during the week and $5 per car with the pass.

We go to this beach every time we visit family. This is a great little beach in an unbelievable location. Just minutes off the highway, you basking in the sun with a cool one in you hand from the Beach Hut. The live entertainment all afternoon and evening can't be beat. If you can't afford a ticket to paradise, just... More
