The waiting liner for a reservation here is a long one, but one you should get on years in advance if necessary. This Park is special, right on the ocean, with wonderful amenities and near some great towns.

Hither Hills state park is the largest and most diverse of Eastern, and arguably all of, Long Island's preserves. Together with The walking dunes to the east and Hither Woods and Laurel Canyon to the east it encompasses dunes, hardwood forest, scrub, bluffs, beach, and much more. With over seven miles of dramatically steep and remote coastline, Hither Woods also has the longest pristine waterfront the region has to offer.
Walking dunes- A visit to hither woods is not complete without seeing the cranberry bogs, pine forests, and ever shifting sand dunes (some over 100 feet high) that makes up the walking dunes.

Laurel Canyon- although the name is somewhat exaggerated, this area is made up of picturesque hills, valleys, and laurel patches. Visit in late spring for pink and white blossoms.
Hither Hills- Forested, with large sandy hills that have been covered with pines over the years. This section offers some breathtaking views from hill tops.

Hither woods- The most diverse segment, Hither woods contains lakes (fresh pond), deciduous forests, grassland, and the most impressive coastline. Oceanfront is lined with bluffs that drop steeply down from the woods.

Beautiful sand, beautiful ocean, wonderful swimming and surfing.
My favorite beach on Long Island when I vacation from California.
I still love the Atlantic the best...it's my favorite ocean!
This was one of the few L.I. beaches that re-opened within a few days after Hurricane Irene.
Thank you Hither Hills, you saved this year's New York vacation.j
See you next summer.

This park is amazing. The beach is just beautiful, a real hidden gem. The grounds are kept very clean. I'd recommend this place for a camping trip or even just a day trip. The drive is worth it. My kids enjoyed the playground and the softball field. The adults love having bathrooms and showers easily accessible.
