Hither Hills State Park is a 1755acre state park located on the eastern end of the South Fork of Long Island near the hamlet of Montauk, New York.HistoryThe land that was to become Hither Hills State Park was once slated for private development of a recreational complex, including hotels, casinos, a polo field, and yacht basin, in the early 20th century. After the planned development was blocked by the Long Island State Park Commission, a portion of the private holdings were sold to New York State, who opened the 1755acre parcel as Hither Hills State Park in August 1924.DescriptionLocation and accessThe park is located on the South Fork of Long Island at Napeague. Three additional state parks a few miles farther east are: Montauk Downs State Park, Camp Hero State Park, and Montauk Point State Park.The nearby hamlet of Montauk is accessible from the park via the Montauk Highway and the Montauk Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. Suffolk Transit's 10C route also serves the beach connecting it with East Hampton and Montauk, and the Amagansett, East Hampton and Montauk Long Island Rail Road stations on the Montauk Branch.

  • Really nice. Off road pass needed. Nice campground with small store. Reserve early. NY state park pass needed. Go to Bethpage State Park off Southern state Pkwy north side to get required passes. Camping, fishing, off road and beach access. Prices vary from 60.00 and up.
  • Awesome mountain bike trails. Trails recover super quick.
  • Awesome vast area of beach and coastal wilderness. Much more than just the campground on the Ocean. Includes the famous Walking Dunes hiking area and unspoiled bluffs along the Block Island Sound
  • Spent 3 days wonderful waves crashing ocean smell very clean going back
  • It's a very clean and cozy plus so relaxing place to go ....
