We don't camp here because we live in the area. We enjoy the beach and the fun summer and fall activities they have there.

This is really a nice park. White clean sandy beaches and there are also campsites at this park. There is a bath house to change with restrooms. I would highly recommend bringing the kids to swim here.

Off season, the beach is deserted: wind and waves and you. It's absolutely beautiful, especially as the sun sets. At night watch out for the snow fence. Bring a flashlight on cloudy nights!
