|The cliffs at Camp Hero State Park - South Montauk, NY|
Situated in the southeast corner of The End of Long Island, Camp Hero State Park has a varied military history dating back to 1929. Entering the park from the lighthouse area, one can choose between many trails leading either through the woods, or to the breathtaking cliffs that overlook the Atlantic on the south side, or among relics of the base both as a US Army outpost and as an Air Force base.

With sites to picnic and grill, beaches to fish and surf and lots of photo opportunities, this piece of pristine land at The End is certainly worth a visit when you're in the area. Conspiracy buffs will want to read through The Montauk Project before visiting; for your reference, the park closes at sunset. If you believe in ghosts, you'll want to get out before the sun goes down anyway!
