We go to Horseneck to walk the beach, more so before and after beach season when there are fewer people. Unfortunately there are dog walkers who unleash their dogs and it is very uncomfortable for those of us who prefer not to be sniffed, barked at or jumped on! Nonetheless Horseneck is beautiful in any season.

We decided to take advantage of the lovely Fall New England Weather and go Trailer Camping over at Horseneck Beach State Reservation (right on the tip of Westport, MA). We made a Reservation via the www.ReserveAmerica.com Website for the Massachusetts Department of Conservaton and Recreation. Unfortunately, the Gate Attendant gave away our Reserved Campsite (but thankfully he suggested another Trailer... More

This is generally my go to beach. The water is warm (in season), easy to get to, inexpensive, and well kept. The beach is in the southernmost section of the town of Westport, MA, and is on both Buzzard's Bay and Block Island Sound. It is a state park, and can get crowded on summer weekends. It costs 7 bucks... More

Having camped here every year for the past ten years this years Horseneck stay was a huge disappointment. We love being by the ocean and the Westport area offers much to see and do. The campground however was a problem. Our son had his long board stolen off the site (& as a side note a friend of ours had... More

If you have a chance to go to a beach before the weather gets chilly give Horseneck beach a try. The water is warmer than the beaches up north and the waves are pretty exciting. The parking was free today- even better and the walk from the parking lot to the beach was easy. The ramp is great when pulling... More

Horseneck Beach is a super accessible beach on the southern most area of MA. The beach is very nice, the parking fee is decent ($8 on 8/30/14) and the bath houses have sufficient toilet and shower offerings. Beware the rocks upon entering the water. There are a lot of rocks on the beach which are easily navigable. In the water... More

We went to horseneck for a change from the north shore and for a quick ride from boston. The beach is nice, but rocky. Nice walk from each end. Not great amenities, but it wasn't the worst I've experienced. Only 70 minute drive!

Horseneck State Beach in Westpoint, MA is family friendly with reasonable parking fees. Bathroom, changing rooms, and outside showers to wash away the sand prior to going home after a day at the beach. The only complaint is the rocky shoreline - It is very difficult to enter the water without beach shoes (which we didn't have available at the... More

I visited Horseneck Beach on a Thursday in July. The surrounding town of Westport is lovely, with well-kept homes and manicured yards that suggest a certain wealth. From Route 195, it is an 11 mile drive along Route 88, which I recall was mostly a single lane road. Traffic was reasonable for a weekday but I imagine it can get... More
