  • Nice quiet beach. This is also one of the camp/rest area locations for the West Coast canoe routes. There is a very nice gentle trail through the woods that let's out into a field as well as the beach walk. There are also picnic and bbq areas with beautiful views.
  • Beautiful hiking area. The foliage here is so diverse. Go out and explore. You won't regret it.
  • Clean park, beautiful scenery. You can take a walk on the ocean front beach or hike in the wooded area. Amazingly beautiful place
  • Nice little beach you can access easily. You can't walk very far north as we found out, they keep a military guard on the beach about a half mile north of the parking lot to turn people around.
  • Good for trail running..lots of wooded trails above and along the beach..walking the dog...but the beach is really Rocky and is very sea smelly...not sandy at all. Had some nice picnic spots too.
