Nice looking building, clean, plenty of parking, and restrooms. The attendants are very nice and knowledgeable. There is a huge amount of pamphlets, books with great coupons, and information sheets. I stay down here but go back to the Center every month for the coupons, mullet wrapper paper, and Coastal Angler Magazine.
