Not our cup of tea. $6 entrance fee. Boat ramp and kayak rentals. Great if you are the outdoors type and like to fish and picnic. Picnic tables and Pavilions for reserve. Walked through the woods to get to the beach. Will not go back. Would rather just go to the beach.

Very nice beach, located near the Fort Lauderdale harbour. The sand is nice, but there is some seaweed that can be disturbing. Nonethless, the visit is worth it.

Not much there but the jetty was great! lots of picnic areas mainly. Theres a boat ramp and beach areas but not sighting seeing place. the jetty was cool to see ships come in and out, plus the fish can be seen from the pier/ rock path.

The setting is beautiful. Great place to BBQ and just hang with the family. You can't have any alcohol though. The workers that work the front gate are RUDE. When we pulled in to pay my husband said Hello as the lady reached her hand out to take our money. She continued on her conversation like we didn't exist. Hey... More

Don't bother going if you're single; the park authorities are afraid that you will contaminate the park and their conservative family agenda. This park has turned into a boring area, with no trees left for shade.
