    My spouse and I went 3 days and 2 nights in Montauk and do not regret! Despite many warnings of ticks on the beaches, I don't have any been disturbed by the "bugs", whatever they may be! I was also very surprised to get a free place in the camping. Booked from 20 to 22 June 2017. Foggy days = beaches literally deserted. Hot and sunny days = busy beach but not too much as to Hampton Beach or Myrtle beach, nothing to see! So you are looking for tranquility, go to Montauk. We came here for surfing and it was very good! But the water is frozen, so be prepared. EVERYTHING, but really everything is expensive here. Food, lodging, even camping! If you try to save, you bring a cooler and prepare food in grocery stores. Otherwise, you're going to ruin you! (like us!). Nothing else negative to say! Prepare your goal, you may meet celebrities! Good trip!

    I went camping here with my dad. It was great. The campsites we were on were open campsites, so we could see twenty of our neighbors, almost like a parking lot. We backed our SUV into the campsite set up our barbecue and were good to go for the weekend.

    Beautiful scenery with clean facilities and good parking. Camp ground also in park.

    Perfect place to get lost on the Atlantic Ocean. Very quiet even the restrooms were closed for winter. We had the pleasure of seeing the sunset here!

    Nice view of the Atlantic, campites are okay but too close
