Hither Hills State Park is a 1,755-acre (7.10 km2) state park[1] located on the southern shore near the eastern tip of Long Island in Suffolk County, New York in the United States.

The park is located on the South Fork of Long Island at Napeague. Three additional state parks a few miles farther east are: Montauk Downs State Park, Camp Hero State Park, and Montauk Point State Park.

The park offers a beach, picnic tables, a playground, recreation programs, a nature trail, hiking, a bridle path, hunting, fishing, a campground with tent and trailer sites that face the ocean, cross-country skiing, and a food concession.

The nearby hamlet of Montauk is accessible from the park via the Montauk Highway and the Montauk Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. Suffolk Transit's 10C route also serves the beach connecting it with East Hampton and Montauk, and the Amagansett, East Hampton and Montauk Long Island Rail Road stations on the Montauk Branch.
