The best camping near Hither Hills State Park guide

Overview

About

Within easy reach of the bustling Montauk scene, Hither Hills State Park lies on the southeastern edge of Long Island. The unique walking dunes of Napeague Harbor face the bay side of the island and offer a spectacular view: the dunes, which reach up to eight stories, 鈥榳alk鈥 as strong coastal winds gradually blow the sand to the southeast.  Anglers can fish year-round, either on the ocean or bayside, and the park also has bridle paths and hiking, nature, biking, and cross-country ski trails. Campers can fall asleep to the sounds of the waves at the oceanfront, 189-site Hither Hills State Park Campgrounds

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. As it is next to Montauk, this park is very popular in summer, so booking far in advance is highly recommended.聽
  2. Bookings can easily be secured online or by phone, up to nine months in advance.
  3. In peak season, from mid-June to mid-September, there is a seven-day minimum stay policy.

When to go

Summer is the busiest time at Hither Hills and nearby Montauk, so is best avoided if you don鈥檛 enjoy crowds. Visiting in May or late September offers good weather but fewer people鈥攁nd you鈥檒l still be able to enjoy all the activities on offer. If you don鈥檛 mind the cold and wind, winter guarantees a crowd-free experience and the opportunity for cross-country skiing.聽

Know before you go

  • If you need to stock up on supplies, you鈥檒l find a handful of small grocery stores in Montauk.聽
  • Motor homes, pop-ups, and trailers are not allowed in the parking lot Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
  • Pets are not permitted in the park.
  • There is a fee for vehicles entering the park. If you plan to visit multiple New York state parks, buying an Empire Pass card can save you money.
