“Beautiful Beach!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

If you love the beach you'll love Cupsogue! It's way out on LI but absolutely worth the drive. There are lifeguards and the BeachHut has food and drinks, although we usually pack our own. My only piece of advice is get there early, the lot fills up fast! Parking is reasonable for the Hamptons:$11, $8 with green key

“Cupsogue Outer Beach, 4X4”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Off roaders, this is a pretty good place to go if you are looking for a place to just find a quiet beach to lay out in the sun and enjoy some peace and quiet. There is not much to do for any serious off-roading, there is just an extension road that runs behind the dune line from the ocean, runs all the way out to the East side of Moriches Inlet. Just a short road, mostly set up with two spots for RV trailers, but very quiet. If you are just day tripping out to a quiet beach, run out to the end and park the truck, grab your blanket and/or chairs, and kick back. Nobody bothers you, and no vehicle traffic on the ocean side of the dune.
If you want a little more activity, don't go out on the outer beach, just park in the paved lot and use the main beach. There is a great snack bar, relatively clean bathrooms, live entertainment on some days, other activities.

Downside, the bugs. Get out of there well before dusk, or you will be invaded by every biting/stinging bug that God created. I guess it's His way of making sure that you obey the "Park closes at Dusk" law...:-)

Cupsogue is a little out of the way to get to, (access Dune Rd in Westhampton, turn right at the light, head west all the way to the end..) but worth it. If you want to stay away from the insanity of Smith Point outer beach, Cupsogue is the way to go, even on the weekends in the summer. Yes, you will need the Suffolk County Green Key and Beach Sticker if you want to use the outer beach.

Lastly, Those of us stock tire gyus or slightly oversized, you are still gonna have to air down for some spots, pretty loose sand most of the road. But, there is one air hose for use at the entrance to the outer beach, in the event that you have to air up again.

“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

We belong to the village beach--Rogers, but love to spend sunset here. Wednesday and Friday nights are Lobster Nights--with lobster and drink specials with live bands. It is everything you want to experience for summer nights.
