This beach was beautiful! Lots of parking there is a fee and not too long of a walk to the Great beach, great food, great music. I would highly recommend going here.
Smith Point, on the Fire Island barrier beach, is a haven for sportsmen, surfers and beach lovers. An extremely popular facility, the park's white sands, rolling Atlantic surf and adjoining camping facility attract Suffolk County residents and tourists each summer season. Reservations are required for all the sites in the campground. All sites have water, and many have electric hookups and sewers. Outer beach camping is available on first come, first served basis, beach conditions permitting. A nationally recognized team of lifeguards makes Smith Point its home base, providing ocean visitors with an extra-special safety feature. Off-road vehicles, with permit only, may drive on the eastern portion of the outer beach.
No other Twin Cities beach receives this much attention. Four years ago, neighbors debated closing Hidden Beach after a tumultuous summer season of drunken driving, drug use and fighting. Neighbors complained of people urinating on their lawns, driving into yards and ringing doorbells in the middle of the night. In , a lifeguard tower was destroyed. But the money for overtime is not always used, he added.
