We had a group of cadets here for a sea survival workshop. It has a youth campground you can rent out with cabins and a kitchen/classroom. Great beach access.

Great spot to see nature and have a picnic, right near the beach yet feel miles away. Took the Segway tour there too, was really fun.

We walked through the Park to try to locate the water taxi pick up point. We were on foot and had to rely on other visitors to give us directions to the taxi point. The grounds seemed very well maintained but ideally a car is needed to explore.

Honestly, we did not get to see all of it because we were in a rush. But i liked that we could go in and out to beach using underground tunnel. Very pretty park right beside a beach.

I visited yesterday in order to go to the beach. There was plenty of parking during the weekday, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was easy to rent an umbrella and lounge chairs, with a staff member setting it all up for us. The beach also wasn't crowded. The only disadvantage was the public restroom, which was... More

My husband and I are locals who went to Hugh Taylor Birch expecting to be able to canoe/kayak for a little while inside the park at the lagoon. Unfortunately, this was not possible because the lagoon is completely full of grass and lily pads. We made it about 100 yards, maybe less, before we had to turn back. All-in-all, our... More

We walked the two miles of Hugh Taylor Birch State Park our last day and it was interesting (bring water though!). Wish we would have gone through the tunnel to the beach though. They rent kayaks and canoes, but we didn't have time for that either. Will definitely be doing that next time though!

Had a very good experience here. Located near the beach. Rented bikes and had a beautiful ride. Also tried out the elliptical bike. DO NOT try this unless you have great balance and stamina!

I've been here many times growing up. I always enjoyed my time here...and as I got older...have been kind of amazed at the wilderness preserved in the midst of asphalt and concrete. It's a nice, relaxing getaway from the big city life of hustle and bustle. I've not been there in many years, so I am not quite sure what... More
