  • First time for me at the park, even though its quite close to my home. Enjoyed the trails and the beach area. Clean, well kept. 
  • This is a state park with NO place to purchase food or drinks so make sure you pack a cooler! There is a fee to enter the park as well. There is no showers, just a changing area. 
  • Who can go wrong by visiting a beach. This beach is so soothing and great for all to hang out on.The lull of the waves is so inviting. Walking or jogging the beach is a must to do. Few shells but they...  more »
  • 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.
