I didn't drive, but there were lots of 4-wheelers on the beach, camped out with fishing rods. I saw a guy catch a huge fish - not sure what it was - but it certainly didn't look too difficult. The surf was a bit strong, but there were nice shells to be picked around here, especially right at the tip... More

This is just one of the most beautiful places to see. The trails are wonderful too. We saw 4 bald eagles on our last trip. It is spectacular if it high or low tide. The oak trees in the parking lot are huge.

A fun place to go and drive on the beach. However, they don't allow your dogs on the beach here. You just have to get a pass for $5 at the local gas station and off you go! A great place to go fishing! We took our Jeep and rode our bikes on the beach! Loads of fun!

Fishing from shore or bridge $2.00 per person paid in honor system box. Nice experience if you like to fish. Kayak experience and horseback riding activities are near the park.

We drove in and out onto the sand to the other end of the beach. It was low tide but really beautiful. Driving out on the beach is the best part of this! There were trucks backed up, families with their children and the nice thing was they put the tail gate down on the truck and they could leave... More

A beautiful place, even in the depth of winter. It was windy at times and you felt sand blasted if you stood in the breeze too long. But the beaches are stunning. A great place for a romantic evening stroll.

This is a no frills state park. Appeared to be a great fishing spot, had beautiful scenery but that was about it. If you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle you could probably have fun driving through the dune area, otherwise it is a very long walk to get to the beach area. It is not safe to swim in... More
