There is a little bit for everyone here. Nice wooded paths, small beaches, marshes, rocky coast, and historical military structures. I think I could visit every day and not tire of this beautiful park. However, bring bug repellent or you won't be able to spend much time in the woods. My family got eaten alive every time we headed away... More

Nice park with loads of trails. The shore is rocky so not really a place to build sand castles or swim. Nice large play ground for the kids. Coming at low tide will allow for some tidal pool exploring. There are some historical signs and old gun emplacements from when it was a fort during WW II but they are... More

We stopped here on a tip from a friend, not knowing what to expect, and were pleasantly surprised. The kids, ages 4 and 6, had a blast collecting rocks and shells. There's not enough of a sandy beach to really lay out a blanket, but there were a few families who did so. The kids also enjoyed exploring the fort... More

We actually walk here from a small parking area via bike/walking paths to avoid the parking fee, which is still minimal. We love the touch tank, and the other sea creatures on display. Best of all though are the unbeatable sea views. Its a rocky beach, but soo so fun to take the kids (in season and out).

The views and walking paths are great year around. Parking is very convenient. You can even take your bikes on the path.

We had a very large outing to this state park today and had a wonderful time! There was something fun to for every member of our large family group...sitting in the shade near a picnic table, playground, jogging, walking, areas to throw the football around, frisbee around, kick the soccer ball around, walk on the beach, swim, bathrooms, etc. Great...

Really interesting Marine Science Center--great for young explorers. Situated right on the ocean, there are inter active exhibits and a nice little gift shop.

This state park has a lot going on! It is adjacent to a marine aquarium that is great on a rainy day, but today was beautiful, and so we stuck to the park. There are trails through the broken down walls of an old fort and to a rocky beach with lots of sea life. These trails are moderate and... More

Nice nature trail. Combine it with a visit to the Science Centre. Kids enjoyed collecting pebbles and shells and generally exploring the rocky beach.

They charge $4 per adult. If you go hike it is ok, the coast seems to have better hikes that are free and on the shore in the area. It is really rocky here in this park, on the walk out to the point I could see graffiti in the park on the trails. Outside the science center is whale... More
