Cedar Point County Park
Cedar Point County Park is a campground located in East Hampton. The 607 acre Cedar Point, with commanding views of Gardiner's Bay, offers individual and organized group camping areas. Picnic areas, boat rentals, nature trails, vehicular access to the outer beach (with permit only), licensed hunting for waterfowl (in season), surfcasting for bass and bluefish. The Cedar Point General Store and Snack Bar, operated by Kaelins, offers Saturday night family movies on the lawn behind the store and free use of recreational equipment. Settled in 1651, Cedar Point was once a busy port for shipping farm goods, fish, and timber from Sag Harbor. The historic Cedar Point Lighthouse stood on an island 200 yards from shore when it was built in 1860. Its beacon served to guide whaling ships in and out of Sag Harbor during its heyday as a major port. The hurricane of 1938 transformed the shoreline, shifting sands to create a narrow walkable strip that now connects the lighthouse with the mainland.
Nearby restaurants include Jeneen's, East Hampton Point Cottages, Tutto Il Giorno, and La Super Rica.

Location details / directions
Founded in 1683, Suffolk County was named for the county of Suffolk in England, the origin of our earliest settlers. Ours is the easternmost county in the New York Metropolitan area and all of New York State. Suffolk County occupies two-thirds of the land on Long Island, which juts about 120 miles into the Atlantic Ocean. Suffolk covers roughly 1,000 square miles of territory and is 86 miles long and 26 miles wide at its widest point.
The weather is temperate, clean water is abundant, and the soil is so good that Suffolk is the leading agricultural county in New York State. That Suffolk is still number one in farming, even with the development that has taken place, is a tribute to thoughtful planning, along with the excellent soil, favorable weather conditions, and the work of dedicated farmers in this region.
Over the past millennium, there has been a procession of Indians, explorers, pirates and colonists to the area, as well as whalers, railroad men, summer residents and commuters. Of course, homeowners, farmers and fisherman have been a mainstay of Suffolk, a cosmopolitan mixture of 1,300,000 people and a region whose population is still growing.
