Watch Hill Facilities

Notice to Visitors
A project to replace electrical and lighting systems, and adjacent bulkhead and boardwalk at the Watch Hill Marina began in September, 2016. The marina, visitor center, bathrooms, and family tent campgrounds will be closed September 19, 2016 for the remainder of the season. The Watch Hill Marina will be closed to ferry service and private boats through late summer 2017.

We appreciate your patience while the marina is under construction. Together with the Federal Highways Administration, the National Park Service is replacing marina components damaged by Hurricane Sandy. This project will make the marina more resilient to future storms.

Know Before You Go

Parts of Fire Island are accessible all year, but most people come during the summer months (late-June through September) when the weather is most favorable for beach related activities. In the off-season (October through April), public transportation to the island may be limited, and some services on various parts of the island are unavailable.
