The 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.
Location 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.
Hither Hills State Park Reviews
My family and I went for the first time last year and absolutely loved bringing our RV! Walk to the beach right from your campsite! Doesn’t get any better than waking up to the sounds of the ocean wav... more »
Beautiful beach, clean showers and toilettes. The Snack bar was very good, kind of expensive but good. more »
This place was really nice. They have camping here which is really cool. The reservations fill up months in advance but they accept day of stand-by reservations. The office opens at 8am so plan to be there before then if you want to get a stand-by reservation. They do calls at 12, 3, and 6pm to let you know if you've received a spot. Highly recommend, it was a great time
Hunkered down and weathering out the Dorian storm at Hither Hills State Park. We love this place!! ...come most year's after Labor Day in September.. nice and quiet.. beautiful beach ..feels private at this time of year.
