Dear Park Visitors,
A couple of weeks ago, we were knocked off of our feet when we found out that we had been awarded the Temporary Contract for the concession at Watch Hill & Sailors Haven, Fire Island National Seashore.
Having grown up in Bay Shore and raised our three children on an old sailboat in Fire Island National Seashore every summer, we welcome Park visitors to a place we love. We look forward to partnering with the National Park Service to bring outstanding visitor services, and are incredibly excited about the Watch Hill Marina upgrades and how easy advance reservations will be with the Dockwa mobile phone app.
Boaters can book slips at Watch Hill & Sailors Haven starting May 16th for our May 18th marina and campground opening. Campsites at the Watch Hill family tent campground will be available to walk-ins May 18 on a first come, first served basis until our campground reservation systems are operational.
Please forgive us for being light on details but we have a lot of work ahead of us in the coming weeks to be ready for your visit. Do come back here for updates or the NPS website and their Press Release yesterday. See you soon and don’t forget to tell your friends both facilities will be open this year!
Doug Biviano, President, Love Watch Hill & Sailors Haven Inc.
