The campsite is a nice campground for easy access to the beach (Long Island sound) and if you want to go to the Long Island wineries. The proximity to those two things make it a popular destination for city folk who don’t understand the proper decorum for a campground. Music starts blasting early here.
Stayed here for two nights with my popup and was surrounded by large motor homes/RVs. sites had zero privacy and were all pull through. There was water, electric and sewer hookups at each site, but this was an expensive place to ‘camp’. Bathrooms and showers were not really clean, which was surprising because most people used their personal bathroom/shower in their RV. It is close to the beach, but a very small and rocky beach. Overall, I don’t think this was the best place for us.
large sites, very clean state campground.Many sites have water, electric and sewer.
Nice beach on the Long Island sound.
It’s a fun campground, has a great beach & great bathroom facilities. It doesn’t have that much of the camping feel, though, as there’s not many trees in the campsite area and the sites are so close together. You will get very intimate with your neighbors. The other campers can be loud, so it’s like a city of camping instead of the great outdoors.
We stayed for 6 nights and it was great. Clean, friendly, safe and relaxing!
Close to the Hampton's and Fire Island National Seashore. A great family campsite right on the Long Island Sound. A little bit of a bummer on the rental for a firepit but the bathrooms are big and spacious. The showers could be a little bit warmer.
The North Shore and South Shore are pretty different. This site gives you the North Shore experience with high bluffs, sandy calm beaches along the Long Island Sound, and views of CT across the water. Lots of other nice state parks in the area plus all the usual Long Island attractions (Riverhead Aquarium, Greek restaurants, farmer's markets, etc.). Swimming, long walks on the beach, shady camp sites, pine barrens and hardwood forest to explore, lots of deer, pretty good birding. You have to buy a stargazing permit to be out on the beach after sunset, which is kind of strange but really helps prevent hooligans from taking over the beach and destroying the serenity. Among the most modern bathrooms I've seen at a State Park campground. Nice clean campground with the usual NY State Park quality. Some accessible facilities, including swimming and camping. A great place to break up the suburban wasteland lifestyle that is much of Long Island!
Big Park 3 minute walk to the Long Island Sound. Have to rent a fire pit, so that is kind of lame. However Big restrooms with free luke warm showers, so that is kind of good.
