  • Have visited Twanoh Park since 1950 when a high schooler. Had many visits over the years. Most recent was September 2017 and have to say it's a great memory, and so clean. Old time bathhouse, view to ...  more »

  • Great spot for a family trip. Shallow water area for little ones, nice roped off section great for the kids to swim in & docks near by to jump off! Plenty of picnic tables & areas to set up camp with restrooms nearby!
  • The individual camp sites were a little too close to each other, but otherwise it was nice. There were bathrooms with quarter showers available and an outdoor water spickette for every two sites. Plus you had the coziness of the woodsy feeling with a beach just across the way with an abundance of oysters and clams (providing it was the right season)
  • The beach and swimming area are really nice and well maintained. The camping is pretty lackluster. You can see from one end of the campground to the other. There's no seclusion at all. More like a bunch of people camping in a field.
  • Twanoh State Park is a great spot! Beautiful scenery and there are so many different kinds of shells on the beach to look at and collect. I've even used the docks to go swimming in the summer. This is a great spot to bring the family for a quick day trip outdoors. Beware, as the park can get CRAZY busy on nice, hot summer days.
  • Really nice scenic view. Went for a cruise with the family and decided to check it out. Turned out to be really nice.
