  • This is a good driving tour with sites to stop along the way. This was a great history tour of post world war 2 and cold war.It was very interesting to see the abandoned giant radar, 3 artillery batte...  read more »
  • A gorgeous view to the East of the lighthouse. Pretty bluffs. Trails to explore. Easy parking (need an $8 permit per car). Not much shade anywhere - bring water and sunscreen! 
  • I originally was attracted by the fishing reviews (excellent by the way) but after hearing about the legends and rumors about the Air Force facility, I had to check it out. The old buildings have an o...  read more »
  • "i haven't been here. yet i think i have", as one of the reviews said, is what tons of people claimed during the montauk project. The book is worth the read. The underground tunnels which apparently run through the town of Montauk itself, are still owned by the government and the whole "state park" itself can be claimed by the government and used as an Air Force base whenever. There is just some basic history about Camp Hero!
  • A great summer camp. Safety from the outside is their first priority. Contact North Fork Audubon for more on birds and other 'flying creatures'. Great Camp. HB 11944
  • I accidentally visited there when I saw this place from the light house because the radar was so big so I wanted to be closer. But most of things were restricted like entering buildings so on. It's not a place you must visit but you would better to visit there if you are a big fan of military. The US military used this facility during World War 2 and Cold War.
  • Really nice park! Hiked to the Bluff Overlooks and the view was absolutely gorgeous! And I Did get an extremely creepy feeling when hiking over to the bluffs! It's a gorgeous park overall but definitely feel some vibes in certain areas!
  • I was walking through there and I stumbled across a seventeen year old with black hair and sea-green eyes. He also had a tattoo with a trident, SPQR, and one stripe, like it was burned into his skin. He had on a faded orange shirt and jeans and sneakers and he had a sword. He looked at me like: Don't tell a soul or I'll send you to hell and back.
