I have always preferred this beach to any other. It is clean and has a great view. I love to come in the morning and I always pack a lunch. The concession stand is a bit expensive. The waves are rather big! The parking fee is $15 On Friday and Saturday nights there is live music on the boardwalk. The... More

Any day this is a great place to walk, and gather your thoughts ! If you are lucky go to the north of the camp sites with binoculars and when the weather is cold you may see some seals. Watch the weather and dress for it

Price is great for camping and the beach is only a 5 minute walk away. I've been to several Suffolk county parks and this one is by far the dirtiest.

Smith's Point campground is a beautiful place to stay. It's 90% of the hither hills experience with exception that it is generally easier to get a reservation at this campground because it is a county campground. It differs from Hither Hills in that the campsites are more sandy than grassy and the camping is above the dunes rather than behind... More

Smiths Point is as good as it gets. Whether you walk or drive onto the beach, you will find some of the best sand on the island. Sandy has left the beach in bad shape for this upcomming sun season - hopefully they will rebuild in time.

With the 4 wheel drive permit you can surf cast here for striped bass and blues. 8 mile drive down the beach to Moriches inlet. Good fishing.
