  • Only have been there once. Great access, loved the beach, which I didn't have to pay for and they have restrooms near the entrance. But when I called to ask questions about the park they weren't very friendly. Also very difficult to find parking once there parking lots are full and you have to pay to park in most of the them. (That's why Overall I gave it a 3 star) But because my daughter and me liked the beach I do plan on going again so I will take a taxi next time to avoid having to deal with the parking issues.
  • Small, yet clean and beautiful little part. Nice, easy beach access as well.
  • Clean, nice sand beach, plenty of room for all!! Parking is not far and not bad price!
  • Great State park!
  • Great place for a vacation break at the beach. Away from the crowds up the beach across the creek. Parking can be challenging at busy times after the parking lot fills.
