Wertheim National WILDLIFE Refuge

The Long Island National Wildlife Refuge Complex consists of seven national wildlife refuges, two refuge sub-units and one wildlife management area. Collectively, the ten units are approximately 6,500 acres in size. Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge is home to the refuge complex headquarters and visitor center.

This 2,550 acre refuge on the south shore of Long Island is bisected by the Carmans River; a New York state designated scenic river and one of the largest on the island. Wertheim hosts a variety of habitats including oak-pine woodlands, grasslands and fresh, brackish and salt water wetlands. These habitats attract and support many types of wildlife including white-tailed deer, osprey, muskrat, fox, turtles, frogs and fish. The refuge also serves as a haven for waterfowl, shorebirds, raptors and songbirds.

Manor of St. George

On the large southern tract, a Manor House was built for Colonel "Tangier" Smith  Smith's Point overlooking the east end of the Great South Bay. During the Revolutionary War the British confiscated the Manor House and erected a small fort.   The location was well suited to protect the eastern end of the Great South Bay and the inlet from the Atlantic Ocean that then existed there.  The Fort and Manor were destroyed by Major Benjamin Tallmadge and his dismounted dragoons when they attacked Fort St. George in 1780 and returned to Connecticut with the captured British soldiers. The Manor house was rebuilt after the war.  Family legend has it that there were three generations of manor houses—the original house, the house destroyed during the Revolutionary War, and the present house.  With its buildings and 127 acres. It is now also a public museum and park. The Manor House and grounds were given to the people of Brookhaven Town and the public at large in 1955 by Eugenie Annie Tangier Smith.

Otis Pike Fire island National seashore

In the wilderness, you can be free to explore, to discover a natural barrier island ecosystem, to savor the solitude. The Otis Pike Fire Island High Dune Wilderness offers a barrier island experience like no other.

Be sure to properly prepare for your wilderness experience. There are no venomous snakes on Fire Island to be concerned about, but you're very likely to encounter dense thickets of catbriar and poison ivy, and in warmer weather, vast numbers of salt marsh mosquitoes and ticks. Wearing light-colored clothing and a wide-brimmed hat helps detect ticks and provides protection from the sun. Always be aware of changing weather conditions, tide and ocean conditions and rip currents, and your response to the heat or cold. For your safety, never swim alone.

From March 15 through Labor Day, pets are not permitted in the Fire Island Wilderness area or on the beach in front of the wilderness.

Smith Point County Park

Smith Point, on the Fire Island barrier beach, is a haven for sportsmen, surfers and beach lovers. An extremely popular facility, the park's white sands, rolling Atlantic surf and adjoining camping facility attract Suffolk County residents and tourists each summer season. Reservations are required for all the sites in the campground. All sites have water, and many have electric hookups and sewers. Outer beach camping is available on first come, first served basis, beach conditions permitting. A nationally recognized team of lifeguards makes Smith Point its home base, providing ocean visitors with an extra-special safety feature. Off-road vehicles, with permit only, may drive on the western portion of the outer beach. All beach-goers are advised to respect the marked, protective fencing around the nest sites of endangered shorebirds inhabiting the ocean and bay beaches. Special events are scheduled throughout the summer months at Smith Point County Park.

Long Island Steamers

Long Island Live Steamers may well be the best kept secret on Long Island. Although thousands of visitors enjoy visiting and riding on our railroad every year, most Long Islanders have either never heard of us, or if they have, have yet to visit us on one of our "Public Run Days." Since most of our advertising is "word of mouth," those folks who do find us are usually very surprised by how much fun a day with Long Island Live Steamers really is!
