Beautiful views, fun little trails to the beach. The lighthouse tour of the tower took a lot of time to turn around each group allowed up.

Went there in the rain during a small gale but found lighthouse very historic. Climb to the top may be tough for seniors but my daughter and I went to the top. Spiral stairs with a rope to hold on(not bad). Waves were spectacular. Wish...More

The entire family can enjoy the day here with a playground, hiking, fishing, and ocean beach access (not for swimming, but don't forget your sunscreen). The 137 spiral stair climb to the top of the lighthouse is the best part of the visit for me....More

Is $8 dollars to park and $11 per person to go up ! Not worth it unless you go on a clear day. Not good for small children they will not let them climb 133 steps!

The Montauk State Park is the END of THE END. You can spend a day exploring the grounds and the beach with a trip to the top of the Montauk Lighthouse.

There are many things to do here. You can go to the lighthouse which is incredible, or walk down to the beach. Both are very fun and good for all ages. If you choose to walk down to the beach, you will pass beautiful vegetation...More
