Fire Island National Seashore encompasses 26 miles of beautiful coastline and 613 acres of fields, forest, and salt marsh at the William Floyd Estate. The dynamic barrier island landscape offers a blend of recreational opportunities and is home to a diversity of marine and terrestrial plants and animals.

Fire Island is just a short drive from New York City, and is a world apart from the bustling communities surrounding it. Explore your national seashore on a ranger-guided canoe tour at Watch Hill; a walk through the globally rare Sunken Forest, a centuries-old maritime holly forest; a climb to the top of the tower at the Fire Island Lighthouse; while camping in New York State’s only federally-designated wilderness; or, on a ranger-led stroll through the fields and forests of the William Floyd Estate.
