Our friends had their wedding on Camp Hero. The views were absolutely incredible of the coastline and had a perfect vantage point on the lighthouse, if that's your kind of thing :) Would definitely recommend getting out there and "hiking" around the area.

This a great place to hike around and take in the views of the Atlantic. Parking is free during the week, but $8 on the weekends. Great place to visit while in Montauk!

Walkable any day. Either on trails which are better not in summer months due to ticks, or on the lightly traveled roads. Lovely ocean views from cliff overlooks. Can be busy on weekends particularly during peak fishing season.

This is a good driving tour with sites to stop along the way. This was a great history tour of post world war 2 and cold war.It was very interesting to see the abandoned giant radar, 3 artillery batteries, and the military base.

A gorgeous view to the East of the lighthouse. Pretty bluffs. Trails to explore. Easy parking (need an $8 permit per car). Not much shade anywhere - bring water and sunscreen!

I originally was attracted by the fishing reviews (excellent by the way) but after hearing about the legends and rumors about the Air Force facility, I had to check it out. The old buildings have an ominous feel, especially after reading all the stories about...More

I first went here back when it still belonged to the federal government, and there were loads of signs saying it was illegal to visit. Back then, you could walk right into the radar building.(fenced off for years now.) They've made the place safer for...More

Believe it or not this camp actually was still in service until I believe the 70's keeping our shores safe. You can see the bunkers, etc and even walk down to the beach. VERY , VERY rocky and slippery. Remember if you climb down the...More
