  • Very nice well kept walking trails with plenty of wildlife and vegetation to view. Great view of the lagoon with a viewing tower.
  • Nice hiking trails. But porta potty was out of order.
  • I visited with my church group during a youth retreat. The park is very peaceful & the trails are wide. Has swamps, lagoons, & giant sand dunes with low oak trees. I wish I could have explored all of it, but my group was in a hurry b/c they had to pick up someone. I found 3 perfect scallop shells on the beach, cacti in an abandoned foundation, & nice sand dollar pieces that make for decent skipping stones.
  • Never get tired of spending time walking the trails, and exploring different areas of the Refuge. So lucky to live a few minutes from this gem!
  • Beautiful. Thank you for preserving this haven.
