  • Not a great beach, but the water gets warm when the tide goes out so it's fun for kids to dig in the muddy sand. Lots of shells and crabs. Great for paddle and skim boarding.
  • The view is soooo beautiful with the sun sparkling on the water and feeding the seagulls is fun. When the tide is out, one can walk out a very long way before being past knee deep. Dog and family friendly : ). I love coming here to sit and just be.
  • My husband and I love to take our dogs for walks at Birch Bay State park, it's a wonderful place, and it is practically in our back yard, so to speak. We have had great encounters with park rangers and park hosts, they are always friendly and welcoming. The park is always kept clean and tidy. This is my place to go when I need to regroup and feel one with nature.
  • It's a lovely spot to go camping. Next time I would bring my own toilet paper
  • I remember going here as a kid then I got older I came here a lot. I just love it. Picture is from picnic we did here on memorial day.
