Camp Hero State Park

Located in the area formerly occupied by the US Air Force Base and "Camp Hero" Army base this park has more than just picnic areas, hiking and biking trails. The entrance leads to a large parking area at the top of one of the highest "bluffs" (cliffs) in Montauk where you can see all the way to Block Island on a clear day. There is a road that leads west from the entrance, through the park to several picnic areas and areas where you can park while hiking or biking ride through some of the most scenic trails in Montauk. You can get up close to the Montauk Radar Tower and the amazingly enourmous buried gun batteries left behind from WWII (which you don't even know are there until you are almost on top of them, these "bunkers" are rumored to extend down many levels below ground, where weird mind control and time-travel experimetns are conducted by secret governments, all commonly reffered to as The Montauk Project... when you see these incredible structures you begin to understand why there are so many strange stories surrounding this area). Fee in season. No camping.

Theodore Roosevelt County Park

The site of the oldest working cattle ranch in the US, this is the area where Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders came to recuperate after the battle of San Juan Hill. The parks boundaries extend all the way to the north shore from Oyster Pond, around Shagwong Point to Gin Beach by the entrance to Montauk Harbor Inlet. The county park beach is a favorite among surfcasters, who routinely patrol the shoreline between the inlet and Shagwong Point looking for Striped Bass and Bluefish. RV camping is allowed by permit only. Contact park office for details.
