  • Park staff were unnecessarily rude. Overall the park is small and the trail is short. There are longer trails and more historic structures at other sites. I wouldn't make a drive out just to visit this. This isn't "hiking" but it's a wooded walk. Also avoid the poison oak. Most of it has signs but some patches don't.
  • Great views down at the beach, large park, friendly staff & informative ranger. They offer fair camping rates & give discounts for people with disabilities and veterans. There are some really cool & private camp spots for RV's! I recommend the pavilion down at the beach. Cheap to rent it for a ton of people. Great to get away because it is pretty far from commercial areas and tucked away near a nice residential area on the water.
  • This is a small park that is perfect for an afternoon walk on the short trails. Great views of the sound and some cool historical buildings. Public restrooms and an open air pavilion for gatherings.
  • I love this park! It has the beach, wooded trails, rolling meadows, and amazing views! Dog-friendly and family-friendly. Great very picking in the summer. I love hiking and kayaking here!
  • Great campground, well run, come watch the bald eagles soar and race through the trees, hear their high pitched calls and shreaks. Explore the buildings from the early 1900's that would have been used to defend the area. The installation was built to supply and support the mines that lined the entrance to the Rich Passage.
