  • Small beach, but never overly crowded. Friendly park staff. The water is great for swimming.
  • Beautiful sandy beach with a great view. Wasn't very crowded so it was really peaceful and relaxing.
  • Beautiful beach with amazing views. Good for a run or walk along the beach
  • 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.
  • Great state park right on the beach. A few nice trails to hike also
