These are a bunch of pictures I took out at Camp Hero between 1999 and 2004. Some of the pictures are from before the base was opened to the public.
There aren't any earth-shatterings photographs here. However most of these have not been published on the web, and I thought someone might find
something interesting. I apologize to those of you on dial up.
This is a picture of a symbol someone carved into a rock on the base.
The dreaded bluffs...
Welcome to Camp Mind Control, (Retired)
I think an AA battery must have sat here at one time.
The bluffs are quite unstable.
The SAGE off in the distance.
Close-up of the SAGE Radar.
Bunker Dunn Plaque.
A regular plane over flying the base...
A weird old house that was fenced off limits.
The planetary circle (I think) Not sure why they named it that. There was also another dirt road that went in a circle whose purpose eludes me...
Another bunker plaque.
Bunker with a big fish etched into it.
This was off limits. This was the police officers office.
Just a pretty path behind the bunkers...
A shot of what I beleive was the microwave tower.
I guess they don't have weed whackers!
We suspected this was the giga-watt meter John Quinne Described. I have been berated many times that it is not.
Just a shot from the scenic view! Some scenery...
In this one you can just make out the masts from the GATR array. I never got on the ground there.
A road in the base. The undergrowth made it almost impossible to travel any other way...
Some of the juice flowing into the base with two working buildings, as far as I could tell...
Spooky pictures of the SAGE.
Spooky pictures of the bluffs. Nice story behind this shot.
Shot of the inside of one of the bunkers. I got this shot by putting my camera through a hole in the wall well over my head. The orbs are caused by
water droplets, or the interdimensional monster named Junior forming out of thin air!
Another bunker shot.
Some graffetti in the bunker...
Spooky bunker shot.
A tunnel going into one of the bunkers. I couldnt bring myself to crawl in there.
Pretty well camoflauged bunker near the bluffs...
The police barracks.
A new generator near the bluffs...
A hole in a bunker. This was how I got the shots of the inside.
A house on the base...
Tunnel, partially exposed, leading to complex beneath the radar.
These concrete manhole covers were all over the place in the woods.
Another uncared for building.
I noticed these trees fallen over around one particular bunker. I thought it might be evidence of some kind of ground contamination...
Some wires coming out of a bluff.
These weird paths were cut through some very dense paths at odd intervals around the base. At first I couldnt figure out what they were, and
speculated they might be some kind of aerial markers. Now I think it is probably just the Army Corps of Engineers looking for unexploded ordinance.
A plane that kept flying over the base. On all our visits there.
Montauk Point is very pretty in the summer...
Warning of Unexploded Ordinance.
This is an entrance into the rear of the base. Notice this is where the power lines enter.
Front Entrance to the base.
Here is another (again) picture of the SAGE. I am not certain how high it is but it is a massive structure. Below it is a picture of a 7 story
building in the town of Montauk. Seems odd that these buildings are supported by what is purported to be a base of sand and water.
The Babes of Montauk...
A communications mast in the middle of the base...
