  • They just build a new bathroom near G ring. It is very clean and updated. Of course, the beach is second to none. Sites is pretty spacious for two tents and a screen house, and you still have more spa...  read more »
  • Sleep with an ocean view in Montauk for $35 a night - can't beat that. Clean bathrooms/showers and a store for coffee and egg sandwiches in the morning. This must be the best bargain in eastern Long I...  read more »
  • If you've never camped on the beach, Hither Hills is the perfect destination. The sound of surf and fresh air, your car and BBQ grill conveniently close, and hot showers in your semi private bathroom ...  read more »
  • Wow, I would wholeheartedly agree about the rude service, and I didn't even stay there overnight! I called to get clarification on the seven-day minimum, since I would only be in town one night for a wake/funeral (and during Labor Day weekend, last-minute hotels are nearly impossible). The woman who answered the phone couldn't have been less helpful or more rude. And I'm not easily offended! Can't speak for the accommodations, and likely will never be able to.
  • Just reviewing the beach itself. Clean beach and clean facilities. Has a private feel to it. The parking is small ... So plan on arriving early or late in peak season. Or else join the others parking on the main road and walking in.
  • excellent park but... the front office staff culture was one of unfortunate contempt and rudeness (manager and two staffers) which can ruin your day as they had for us. Staff thwarted all questions and offered nothing but rudeness. General Store was also generally closed.
  • Beautiful park and beach area with lots of amenities.
  • The people that work here are very rude and unhelpful.
