  • Beautiful, great beach and well taken care of by Park board. Usually not too overcrowded. Nice rests rooms.  more »
  • gorgeous park with views of the beach and has ample parking. It is also a great place for family and hikers. bring a picnic lunch or catch the sunset. I love it there.  more »
  • A causeway connects to what was an island beach. Beautiful park area and large beach. Small parking fee of five dollars, but everyone seems to pass their tickets on to the next car when they leave.  more »
