We enjoyed walking on the trails, which are not long at all, and skipping rocks on the beach, and there a LOT of rocks.

When you drive into camp hero you’ll immediately notice that many of the roadways are in disrepair. The radar tower was cool to see and there are multiple picnic areas.

Camp Hero is a family favorite for us. We love telling the kids the history of it and hiking the different trails. It is a little creepy but in a fun way. There are tons of picnic areas and photo opportunities.

This is a great location for the entire family. One can visit the lighthouse but I'm not sure what the hours are. Be careful when on the bluffs as they're crumbling; stay for sunset!!! :-)

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!
