We got married here in September and had an amazing wedding but it could have been better due to communication issues. Its an amazing venue and value. If they could get their communication issues corrected and update the venue area, this place would be amazing! The venue needs some updating but the view and atmosphere are stunning. We booked it...

There is something for everyone here, a sandy beach, outdoor pool, mini golf, kids rides, bar and fast food restaurant....parking is $20 per car but there is no other entrance fee to the park. My grandkids really love the place and I do too!

We recently visited this beach and immediately it was like a walk back in time, and not a good one! The rides are completely outdated, needs new ones, unsafe, rusty, paint peeling, and the water slides are old, outdated, and boring since there's only 3. The beach itself is okay and fun but the amusement park and water park needs... More

5-Stars to Debbie and her staff for making our wedding perfect and stress free. This was by far the best deal in CT and as New London locals, we could not have wanted anymore perfection. The food was fantastic but really the service....top notch.

I give them credit for trying to keep it alive but it's in dire need of a huge revamping. The beach has so much potential but it's just lacking in so many ways. Mini golf is over 30 years old as well s the arcade and bar. Not enough food options and entertainment. It's very cool that they have the... More

We heard about this place last time we went to Mystic and it was the perfect time to bring our five year old Granddaughter who loves the ocean. It was the closest and best beach around. We got there early so no traffic, although it got crowded later we had plenty of space. We went two day and just enjoyed... More

We needed some down time from our busy trip and chose this beach based on location. I can see how this would be packed in the middle of summer, but when we went in early Sept, it was pretty empty, very clean, and the boardwalk was charming to stroll down in the evening. We had to pay $18 to park,... More

We visited the week before Labor Day since there was a stretch of 90 degree weather. The beach was clean and not busy at all. The pool was closed both days we were there which was a bummer (HUGE pool) ...especially for that hefty $18 to park fee. The water was clear, calm and warm. The spray park was nice... More

The beach is nice. It is long enough to accommodate a lot of beach goers. The sand is fine without a lot of rocks. The price for admission, $18, was a little steep for midweek to park, but not out of line for other beaches that are similar. They do have an olympic sized pool, miniature golf, a couple of... More
