Accabonac Harbor and Neighboring Hog Creek are often considered the Heartland of East Hampton . Accabonac Harbor or as it is known by the locals, “Bonac Crick”, has been a stronghold of fishing activity for centuries. Dories and other workboats line the shoreline on pulley rigged moorings, ready to set off for lifting pound traps or other near shore commercial fishing activities. This waterbody is well represented in our aquaculture efforts and a relative abundance of hard clams and oysters can be found on the bottomlands. Sport fishing is also popular at the inlet and along the inner and outer shoreline. Other forms of outdoor recreation, such as kayaking, paddleboarding and sailing are popular on this waterbody. The Trustees manage dredging activities on this harbor and clear the north culvert and the main inlet on a regular basis. Landing Lane is a road end owned by the Town of East Hampton and is a popular location for launching small watercraft, paddle boards and kayaks and as a stop to enjoy the scenic views of the Harbor. 

This Chronolog Station is located at Landing Lane on Accabonac Harbor.
