The best camping near Fire Island National Seashore guide

Overview

About

The Fire Island National Seashore is a different experience during high (tourist) season and the rest of the year. During summertime, you can expect mad crowds. As soon as Labor Day hits, the crowds die down, even though the weather typically remains great for another month or so. However, you may find that the shops, restaurants, and even the ferries start to shut down once summer's over. If you know what kind of experience you prefer, time your visit to avoid (or be in the middle of) the hustle and bustle.

The soft sand at Watch Hill feels luxurious—and if you stroll a bit eastward, you're likely to find an even emptier swath of beach. Walking around the Watch Hill Marina and nature trails is a lot of fun (bring insect repellent!), and the ferry trip to Davis Island is definitely worthwhile. If you plan to visit the sunken forest, that mosquito repellent is mandatory (these tiny monsters will follow you back to the beach!) This ecological phenomenon is perhaps the only one like it in the world.

Hipcamp can help you find casual places to stay on Long Island as well as in nearby Connecticut. Look for spots to pitch your tent in meadows and on farmland. You can even opt for tent camping at Rockaway Beach or a shabby chic cottage along the Connecticut coast.
