Carmans River and its surrounding marsh represent one of the last undeveloped estuaries on Long Island. The wildest and most pristine of the island’s four major rivers—the others are Nissequogue, Connetquot, and Peconic—it offers fantastic paddling and wildlife observing.
We include here the lower section, a meandering 4.5-mile tidal flow from Route 27 to Bellport Bay through 2,550-acre Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge. Habitat type: tidal estuary below Route 27, impounded river above; no development
