The Best Camping Spots On Long Island NY Long Island New York is well known for its beautiful beaches and its close proximity to New York City. What many people don't know is that there are some great places to go camping as well. If you are the type that enjoys the outdoors and the beautiful scenery that can be found in nature, you will really love what the island has to offer. Most of the campgrounds are either state or county owned and run which means they are well kept up and very safe for the whole family. If you are planning a trip to New York this summer you will probably want to check out a few of these spots. There are a few in particular that I personally recommend. A really nice campground can be found at Hecksher State Park which is located right on The Great South Bay in western Suffolk. There are some beautiful water views and miles of park to explore. There are nature trails as well as bike trails for those that enjoy getting a little exercise out in the sun. The campground section is kept nice and tidy by a small staff that remains on duty 24 hours a day. Its facilities include restrooms with showers. Water spickets and built in BBQ grills can be found located near each individual camp space. RVs are welcome so if tents are not your thing that's ok too. Camping is around $16 a night during the week and $20 on weekends. Discounts are available to local residents. This is one of the better campgrounds on Long Island. My absolute favorite spot to hike or camp on Long Island is Wildwood State Park. Wildwood is located on the North Shore of Eastern Long Island. It is quite a different scene than Hecksher as the North Shore has much higher elevations and a more mountain like landscape. The campground is huge and boasts all of the same amenities as Hecksher. It is easily 4 times the size though. My favorite thing about Wildwood is the scenery. You can take a short hike through the woods and come out on top of a huge bluff overlooking The Long Island Sound. The views are breath taking and there are plenty of trails to hike up on the bluffs. If you're not into hiking you can also spend time catching some sun on the beach. Swimming and fishing are allowed as well. If you only check out one park on Long Island, this is the one to see. There are about a dozen other great places you can camp on Long island as well, including some private campgrounds. There are a couple more nice State Parks as well including William Floyde State Park which is located right on the Atlantic ocean over on Fire Island, the barrier to Long Island. Most of the State run facilities will have brochures available listing the rest of the parks and campgrounds on the island. So if you get a chance stop in and grab one if you want to check a few of them out. You will be glad you did. Cheap SEO On Long Island
