  • Beautiful large beach with fishing pier, great for families. A short walk 15 minute walk from parking lot (downside: walk back is uphill, shuttle available for the less able). Great nature walk, natur...  more »
  • About a mile walk from the nature center down to the water. There are closer places to park if you drive down the hill. We walked through the marshy beach area down to the water and the bay was breath...  more »
  • We love going here. It's a mixture of pine, dunes, ocean, and history and is truly remarkable! My only disappointment and it happened twice - we checked their website for the hours but were misinforme...  more »

  • Perfect beach for people that wants to go with dog and find shark teeth, there are so many to find! We always come back with plenty of them if we try for 10 minutes. Has restrooms and the parking is about 15 minutes walk from the beach. They have some lectures that the police park does sometimes of the year at summer about the type of fossils you could find there.
  • Fantastic park. Good parking lots. Short walk to the beach, about a quarter of a mile. Walking towards the beach is mainly downhill, so obviously, coming back is mainly uphill. Not too strenuous but keep it in mind. Once at the beach there is about 300 yards of shore. There is a small fishing pier. Several nature trails and beautiful ponds. Excellent place to take kids. On your way to the beach there are lots of raspberry bushes so, when in season, there are raspberries everywhere.
  • Great place to take the family or for the avid fossil hunter. Way better than Calvert cliffs for the fact the walk down to the beach is nowhere near as long maybe a 10 min walk not like 2 miles lol and the beach is like 5 times as long as the one at Calvert cliffs. Pet friendly as well.
  • I live right beside this park and it's a pretty nice place nature at its best
  • Great place to find fossils and shark teeth! We found 6 teeth in a group of us! Will definitely go back!
