Hither Hills Camping Reopens

    The campground at Hither Hills State Park in Montauk is reopening today, as will several other state parks that had been closed in the wake of Hurricane Irene.

    The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announced Tuesday morning that Hither Hills, Camp Hero, Montauk Downs, Montauk Point, and the Sag Harbor Golf Course would welcome visitors.

    A number of other Long Island parks remained closed, including Jones Beach, Orient Point, Captree, Wildwood, Nissequogue, and Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park.
