  • Great beach access and hike to town. We walked down to the beach and then around the corner before returning due to the tide coming in. Fabulous beach with lots of options.  more »

  • Just gorgeous! Go there and you will not be disappointed. When you arrive there's parking just as you enter the park on your left. This allows you to take a little bit of a walk down to a more secluded beach (as compared to the other). If you, on the other hand, continue down to the right you'll end up at a more populated area that has bathrooms (something to consider depending on your guests.). The entire park is beautiful and the beaches are amazing.
  • This was one of the most beautiful Parks I've ever visited. The ocean made beautiful sounds. The views were stunning lots of rocks in the ocean crashing waves lots of sea life around the rocks. Not many people, so it made for an enjoyable time to have a picnic. The picnic tables were set up nicely to have a view of the ocean.
  • Best $20 I've spent! Direct access to the beach, big secluded campsites, and nice bathrooms and showers. I would love to come back and spend more time here.
  • Beautiful, quiet park. Most sites are level and have some privacy. The rangers that work there are very nice and helpful. Clean bathrooms and free hot showers. Has beach access and plenty of drift wood!
  • Beautiful park. All the ammenities and the yurts looked really cool to stay in. Wish the tent campground wasn't full of rocks though.
