    A great place for kids and families, this is an easy hike, walk or bike along their groomed walking trails. There is some pristine old growth forest in the Wolfs Neck State Park, and the farm is a great source for local produce. Wheelchair accessible, bathrooms, horshoes and more!

    Great state park on the coast! Plenty of hiking trails through the woods of varying abilities and decent waterfront access. Very knowledgeable staff, very friendly and polite! Will return!
