“Beautiful park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Spent a gorgeous fall day at the park and it was great! There was a campground there but they must have been all inside. No one on the beach. It was a perfect day! Great facilities - restrooms, playground, etc. Don't think I'd like to be here in the summer with all the crowds, but I truly enjoyed my solitude at the beach.

“A magnificent view of one of the most special places on earth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

This park, which permits camping by tent,car, trailer,etc. is located atop an overlook which permits views up and down the length of the ocean and beach. Its proximity to Montauk, Amagansette and East Hampton, make it an ideal and central location for everything the Hamptons has to offer

“help! Can't get reservation!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Tis year I was fortunate to visit my cousins here one day this summer. I used to LOVE it here but I have not been able to get a reservation for years! What is the deal with furiously calling and going on line and anxiously typing away in a panic at EXACTLY 8:59 am, PRECISELY 9 months before your vacation week, and being informed at 9:01 am that all sites are sold out. Not only is that a logical and physical impossiblity, but (since Hither Hills is a government facilty) deserves to be investigated by the State DAs office. An accountability of the fees, pricing, and trickery by "Reserve America" need to be delved into as well. REMEMBER...This OUR park (NYS taxpayers) NOT RESERVE AMERICA'S. Any hints? How do you all get sites every year!

“Beach front camping”

This was so cool. We stumbled upon this and wished I was a camper! What a treat to be practically on the beach.

“Hither Hills Get a permit to camp or just stay the day.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Hither Hills State Park offers camping by lottery. The camping area is on the beach separated from the ocean by sand dunes.

This has facilities and a place for refreshement. This is a fine park for a day trip.
