We visited Lake Montauk, and stayed right in the Marina. The Lake was nice and seemed to be a popular place to visit. However, there were horrific odors in parts of the lake, unknown causes.

This is a beautiful place to visit with clear water, and when we visited, we didn't face any crowds. There were many shells to pick up and boats to watch. So, children are easily entertained. Easy place to get great pictures. Make sure to get a local beach pass, if you want to park near the beach.

Lake Montauk is beautiful and serene. We have anchored here at night and watched shooting stars. It is a very quiet beautiful place.

Water quality on and in the lake is often questionable call CCOM or another environmental organization before you let your toddlers spend the day in the lake.
