  • We love going here, year round. The playground is nice when the kids need to burn off energy and Warsaw town park is crowded. They offer swimmimg here in the summer, hiking, all that fun parky stuff. ...  more »
  • My husband & I stayed in cabin 20 this past weekend, and used that as our “home base” for exploring the area. The park was absolutely beautiful as the trees were aglow with the colors of fall. The cam...  more »

  • I absolutely love Westmoreland. As an avid shark tooth hunter, I’ve never walked away empty handed. Do try to go on less populated days, because when the beach feels crowded it’s no fun. Also, beware of jellies in the late summer because they’re EVERYWHERE. Recommendations: avoid peak times (weekends, midsummer), bring sun screen, bring a towel and be prepared to walk up hills and through mud on trails
  • Love this place! Short, but good, nice hike to get to “Fossil Beach.” The beach is very pretty with cliffs on both sides. Anytime that we have gone, there have only been two or three other people there. It’s a great place to take the dogs, as long as they stay on leash. We have seen Bald Eagles, which was great and just the other day there were a bunch of small lobsters (I think) which was really interesting. I have had a lot of luck finding some pretty good sharks teeth as well!
  • This park was so fun, despite raining the entire day I was there. There were great places to hike and they were very well maintained. I was bummed to not find any fossils at Fossil Beach, but it was fun to look! I also saw a bald eagle while I was there.
  • Just recently went for the fossil hike with a 3 year old and two 7 year olds. We had such a good time! The kids loved it! After the hike they made shark teeth necklaces. We will be back!
  • This is a wonderful State Park. Cabins, walking trails, swimming pool, food, sharks teeth and nature at it's most beautiful. I have been going to this Park for over 50 years. My parents took us here in the early 1960s and the park has kept it's great character and has improved with the times.
