There's many locations, but here's a few that 'stick out':
Smith Point Park is the largest oceanfront park in the country. Smith Point is located on the Fire Island barrier beach and is a mecca for sportsman, surfers and beach lovers alike. Smith Point offers 270 campsites for tents and trailers on its 2,293 acres with playgrounds, water/electric hookups, grills and snack bar. Campers and tourists will be able to explore the oceanís floor while scuba diving, catch some waves, try their luck at saltwater fishing or indulge in relaxation on the sandy beach..
Camping in the 'woods'
This 275 acre Indian Island Park, at the estuarine mouth of the Peconic River, is open to the public year-round for a variety of activities. Camping is immensely popular at Indian Island, with trailer and tent campsites open to organized groups, individuals and camping clubs. Restrooms and shower facilities are available for the comfort of all campers. What was formerly the "island" at Indian Island County Park is now connected to the mainland by a causeway composed entirely of white sands. Remote, yet easily accessible to all, this "island", complete with picnic tables, grills, comfortable benches and views of a glistening and peaceful Flanders Bay, offers one of the finest picnicking sites available in Suffolk County.
