  • The beach here is lovely. It's just about a mile and a half walk from Old Orchard and maybe another mile to OOB's Pier. No public restrooms.  more »
  • Beach was decent. Plenty of parking. Bad side- bathrooms are basic outhouses, which I can do but they where fly ridden and disgusting. Totally would pass if you have to use bathrooms.  more »
  • Clean beach. Bathrooms need to be cleaned and up-dated. Girls complained of how dirty they found them.  more »

  • Spent a beautiful day here with my mother for her birthday as part of a weekend getaway. The beach is gorgeous, although the water was too cold for us. And the walking trails through the woods are very easy. We appreciated all of the picnic tables available for our lunch.
  • Among the nicer of the dog-friendly beaches in the area: with nice sand and a great stretch to walk along. In late summer it doesn't seem overcrowded, even on the weekends. Gem!
  • Nice place to spend a few hours. Visitor center is very good too. Nice clean beach.
  • Had a nice walk but there's no trail map so I felt like I was just wandering around.
  • Bring heavy duty bug spray! Other than the mosquitoes, the trails are delightful. Lots of trails are boardwalks and they're all short and easy. There's beach access here and public restrooms. There are fees to enter.
