We make this place a "must visit" every summer. The beaches here are long with plenty of space to spread out. The $10 entry fee is very reasonable. There is a snack bar, bathrooms with showers and a changing area. There is a reserved campsite here so many people come from their campers and relax in the sun. The parking... More

Avoid Hamptons hustle and bustle at this unspoiled enclave between Montauk and Nepague. Rarely crowded, always a pleasure.

This seems to be a fairly undervisited gem in Montauk. Park in the Hither Hills Overlook West and you will find a nicely detailed trail map for hikes of varying lengths. The hike to Fresh Pond is wooded and shady and the pond is beautiful (not sure if it's swimmable for humans, but our dog loved it). You can then... More

Daily activities for the kids and beautiful beach. Clean campgrounds. Clean bathrooms with plenty of hot water. Movies at night for the kids and sports games played throughout the day. They also have a rec room for the kids to hang out in. Very family oriented. No fires at campsite, only in designated areas.

Awesome campground. Clean, affordable and spacious. The best campground we have visited to date. Water a couple sites away, bring a 100' hose. No hookups. Bring a generator and portable waste/grey water tank. Bring a fire pit.

This is the second year in a row where we camped out at Hither Hills, where there were quite a few nearby sites filled with pretty loud drunks. Everyone is entitled to have some drinks and let loose on the weekend, but we found it pretty annoying when large groups of guys were drinking, yelling and cursing from morning till... More

One of best public beaches on Long Island. Never crowded, white sand, clean. Eat on hill overlooking ocean, then go onto the beach to relax. Worth the trip if you are on the south shore and out east for the day. Small country store onsite.

This review is for the Walking Dunes. We followed the signs to Hither Hills State Park and ended up at the beach/campground. We drove to the overlook and saw a map that showed how to get to the Walking Dunes. Entrance is on Napeague Harbor Road and you drive all the way down and just park alongside the road. After...

Hither Hills is a great place for camping, swimming, fishing, campfires and stargazing. Meet new friends that last a lifetime.
