This 607 acre Cedar Point, with commanding views of Gardiner's Bay, offers individual and organized group camping areas. Picnic areas, boat rentals, nature trails, vehicular access to the outer beach (with permit only), licensed hunting for waterfowl (in season), surfcasting for bass and bluefish.  The Cedar Point General Store and Snack Bar, operated by Kaelins offers Saturday night family movies on the lawn behind the store and free use of recreational equipment.   Settled in 1651, Cedar Point was once a busy port for shipping farm goods, fish, and timber from Sag Harbor. The historic Cedar Point Lighthouse stood on an island 200 yards from shore when it was built in 1860. Its beacon served to guide whaling ships in and out of Sag Harbor during its hey-day as a major port. The hurricane of 1938 transformed the shoreline, shifting sands to create a narrow, walkable strip that now connects the lighthouse with the mainland.

Fishing, hiking, picnicking, camping, playground, rowboat rentals, bicycling, saltwater fishing, scuba diving, hunting, outer beach access. General Store and Snack Bar (631) 324-7147.

Montauk Highway east to Stephen Hands Path in East Hampton. Turn north and continue to Old North West Road. Bear left and continue to Alewive Brook Road. The park entrance is nearly 100 yards down the road.

There are 190 general campsites for tents and trailers with full sanitary facilities (showers). Youth group and club camping areas available by permit only

I've camped here during a 50 mile canoe trip.  Beautiful campground and nice, clean facilities.  Watching the sunset at the lighthouse is an unforgettable experience.  Highly recommended.

This is my favorite Camp Site on LI. Go there about 3 times a year. Rustic but they added water hook ups to every site this year. Clean bathrooms and showers for those who go in tents.

Unfortunately I went out there Memorial Day Weekend and came down with Lyme Disease. Tic's this year ALL OVER Suffolk are out of control. Mild winter caused this. Be careful no matter where you go.

I think Mechutt is one of the best family beaches on Long Island. You get the Sand of the South Shore, and it is on the bay, so your kids wont get knocked over by waves.
