Beautiful beach that combines camping sunbathing and excellent fishing and gets too crowded in the peak of summer but spring and fall make it worthwhile. Need a Suffolk county beach permit

This park is great for bringing your RV and enjoying the hamptons and fishing. Every time I go I wonder why it is not totally packed.

Shinnecock is a fantastic spot to surf fish. For blue and striped bass fishing the inlet off the rocks early morning is almost a guarantee to go home with fish. You don't even need bait! 2-3 oz silver metal any brand.

This is the place to go if you have a vehicle that can drive on the sand. You can pull right up to the water's edge and decamp onto some of the best white sand and surf in all the Hamptons. Crystal clear water, great...More

Yes, people fish all year long, and I am so sorry that I don't know about permits at all. I suggest you Google it online.

Please consult this fee schedule, as you did not say if your are camping, or just driving a regular vehicle. One must pay for parking through Labor Day Weekend. The summer is the summer and July and August are not more... More
