I didn't walk around a lot, just walked the outskirts of parking lot at waters edge, unpleasant. Foamy water. Across water is airport runway.

It's a great place for a walk, jog, run, biking, and just for plain beach moments. All the stuff in one place..very convenient getaway for those moments when you need it the most. You can also Kayak, go fishing, swimming, bird watching, for bbqs, picnics, etc. It can get a bit busy during the summer time but even then it's... More

A great place to walk- I've gone several times and I always bring my dog (on a leash). A peaceful, easy walk along the water is great any time of day. I've seen lots of bike riding and kayaking too.

Easy three mile loop on the periphery, well maintained dirt road/path (no vehicles), with views of the water and marshes all the way. Across the water is the (not busy) airport for private planes, then views of Fisher's Island and the lighthouses. Great variety of people there, fishing, swimming, walking, biking -- but not crowded on a fine summer day... More

....so this means the place is not maintained very well. Like every other park in the state this one is in decline. But the beauty of the surroundings overcomes the neglect. This is still a great place to visit and hike. There is a beach, but its mainly stones and seashells.

This is one of my favorite spots in CT. Whether you are looking to hike, mountain bike, swim, fish, kayak, or simply lay on the beach, this place is great for it all. The main trail is quite large (like you can drive a bus down it) and will take you down to either a beach on your right side... More

I am always looking for a nice place to run when traveling and this place was great. Nice paths in the woods and along the side for the water.

This park has some amazing views. I went for a great walk with my boyfriend while we were trying to waste time before a ferry back to Long Island. We saw tons of chipmunks. The views of the water were spectacular.

We went for a walk with family and their puppy. We met a lot of friendly people who also were walking with their dogs. Will definitely go back again when we are in the area.

Great walking hike trail with a Bonus at the end.. takes about 45 minutes from the Parking lot. Not set up for non-woodsy folks. So dont plan on Modern Bathrooms etc.lol
