We were driving through and wanted to get a glimpse of the bay, so drove into the park. We walked down to the beach area and sat for a few minutes to enjoy the view and look at the bridge. Because it is still winter, nothing was open, but the day was nice and the kids enjoyed playing around on... More

Plenty of beach for swimming, flying kites, sand castles, fishing and food pavilion. Numerous picnic areas with grills, plus numerous boat ramps with a bait and tackle shop.

This is an attractive park to go hang out, walk a little and get fresh air. Not a place I would make a special visit to. Since I was visiting family in the area it was a great afternoon. Hopefully next time will be during the summer.

We visited with our family on a weekend getaway from the snow of Pa. We walked the beach and enjoyed the beautiful view, it was very peaceful. Very nice change of scenery for us !

We spent about 35 minutes here on an evening in December. $15 a car load of people and Santa greets you at the gate with a scavenger hunt sheet and coupon for hot chocolate. All the lights were working and spread out enough to take your time and slowly drive/enjoy the sights! The park is a few minutes off the... More

We primarily use this location to launch a boat to fish and boat the middle bay. They have excellent clean rest room facilities and some of the nicest launch ramps.There are almost always ducks, herons and egrets around the dock area. It is not unusual to see whitetail deer near the park entrance. The park becomes very crowded on weekends... More

This is a large park where a lot of people seem to go swimming. We are not swimmers so we went in search of a natural place to watch the water.

This is a nice spot for a stroll on the beach or run in the sand, which is gravelly and not as hard as usual ocean sand. As some other reviewers have suggested give it a pass on summer weekends.

Lovely day on the Bay with spectacular view of the bridge. I understand it gets very crowded but for a last weekend of summer (9/20) there was little crowd. The water...well the bay has its environmental challenges but lots of peopl were in it. The sand is not powder fine with some small pebbles but by no means uncomfortable. The... More

I would love to give the park five stars because it is at such a great location and it can be so relaxing...but for it to be relaxing you need to go on a weekday and preferably off season. I have been several times this season. To get into the park you have to pay. During the peak season the... More
