We were here about 25 years ago and decided to make the journey after touring the Hamptons. The traffic improved immensely after East Hampton, so it wasn't a bad journey. It is a pretty park with great views of Block Island Sound and the lighthouse. We didn't stay long and as it was gone 5 and it close at 5.30,... More

Great for walking/running trails and beach exploration. Easy access from main parking area near lighthouse. PDF map online at nysparks.com. Different trails are well marked. Be mindful to check for ticks though after walking through the forested areas!!

This was a great place to go with a young child. Great park for kids with the old school "excavator" playground toys (haven't seen those in years).

Beautiful, clean park you'll want to go back to over and over again. We've visited several times when we go to Montauk on vacation, and it never gets boring!

We visited Montauk Point State Park and the Lighthouse on a Thursday afternoon in June, before the schools were out for summer, and there were a good number of other visitors there. I imagine in the peak season of summer the lighthouse would be quite busy. The fee to park is $8 per vehicle, but that pass is good at... More

I'm from Brooklyn, and I drove all the way out here just to see this Light house. Yes it was worth it. The park around the light house is amazing, beautiful, serine, breezy. The list goes on and on. We got there around 6 PM and it was too late to go into the lighthouse because it closed for the... More

Though we did not tour the lighthouse proper we walked along the rock path along the ocean. It was easy to navigate and got us to the other side with easy access to the parking lot.

We loved that we got to tour the light house, learn a bit of history, but also loved that there were lots of clean public bathrooms, an amazing picnic and play area, lots of family swings to enjoy the view and a very great food grill at the base

When we finally arrived at the park (7:00) it was closed. We only got to visit from afar. However, what we did see was very pretty. I just wished they didn't close at 5:30 in June. Many more hours of daylight left.

Nice place to walk around, have a picnic lunch and enjoy the views. However, keep away from the marked areas to prevent getting ticks.
