This place is a dump. It's dirty with dog crap all over. With all the money the county makes they should enforce some rules. Wait we did see the park police riding bikes trying to catch campers drinking. Many of the spots are very small...More

There are several things you can do. Of course the Ocean beach has good waves for body surfing and limited surf boarding but they also have tent and RV camp sites for Suffolk county residents. You can go for long walks along the tranquil ocean...More

The only good thing about this place is the beach. Staff is sometimes pleasant, sometimes not. Overpriced. Should be more campsites with full hookups. Not very clean sites or restrooms. Garbage pickup needs to improve. Reservation system is the worst. Extremely difficult for locals to...More

Had a beautiful morning at this Historic Beach ! Other than the $15 parking charge, beaches were well maintained and plenty of Life-guards were on scene ! Landscaping around Memorial there to honor the people of Flt 800 from July17,2002 ! Amazing beauty !

The beach is fantastic. However, the outer beach is often closed. Camping is great so close to the beach but bathrooms and showers are filthy. No lifeguards at the area of the beach by the campground.

Ok so this is not a tourist place, its a beach for the locals, music on the boardwalk, crab shack, lifeguards and lots of space. Parking is amazing there is so much of it.

Don't waste your time going here. The outer beach is never open when you want it to be. The Outer Beach closures are sporadic, and the staff rarely wants to explain why the beach is closed. Total Bummer, because the beach is convenient for so...More
