Explore Watch Hill

Watch Hill, a campground and marina run by the Fire Island National Seashore, is about a mile to the east of Davis Park and was first made accessible to the public in 1967.

A preferred tranquil journey for many locals and visitors. Simply return to the main boardwalk, turn east, and continue walking there. Alternatively, you can continue walking along the ocean.

You’ll reach the 183-slip Watch Hill marina, which has a small general store, snack bar, restaurant, and a bar.

A trek through the nature trail is a popular activity for many people. There is also a visitor center, campgrounds for camping and glamping, and other amenities.

There’s also grills, running water, showers, and restrooms at the campground. There are 27 sand campsites in the campground, including one that is fully accessible and one for groups.
