  • Been here a few times, the kids love it! Really fun during the tide coming in to watch them "escaping it".  more »
  • Nice trail for hiking/biking leading uphill into mature woods. Popular campground, nice picnic areas and popular beach on summer days.  more »
  • I’ve been going to this park since I was a little girl. My children and grandson love it. Great place for a picnic, hike, nice walk or to beach comb.  more »

  • Area was nice. I went in beginning of April so not too many people around. Camp sites are a little private but you can still see your neighbors for the most part. I know there are more sites during the summer time so perhaps they have better locations there. Also pretty close to a main road so at night you can hear the traffic going by but keep in mind this is due to being at the site open only during the off season. There is a small town nearby so you can purchase more supplies. Trails are nearby and are pretty fun. The park rangers and park hosts were respectful. I may come back in the summer time.
  • Easy to get to. Plenty of parking was available, though this could be different in the summer. Plenty of area to setup. Check which spots you want beforehand, because there's a house blocking the walk along the beach and pier. Looks to be a good fishing area, but can't get clams as they are toxic here. You also need a pass to get into the park.
  • Absolutely beautiful park with something for everyone, a ton of beach space, reservable party area, even a play area with children’s toys. Only down side is that people frequently let their dogs off leash; it’s an all on-leash area since it’s a state park and there are kids and other dogs there. It’s just respectful to keep your dogs on leash.
  • Nice park, many trails to explore. Too bad you need a pass to enjoy our state parks. Make sure you have a discover pass or are willing to pay to enjoy
  • Great state park. Closer than you think, but away from all the noise of the city. All dogs on a leash are welcomed. Lots of trails and a fairly nice breach access. My kids ll)
