We only had 1 full day to visit and it was cloudy,cool, and rainy. We walked on one of the beaches and toured the lighthouse. The lighthouse tour was about 45 minutes and well worth the$5 admission. Only downside was my husband got a tick bite and got Lyme.

Nice paved bike path. Clean park. Better to go early in morning when there are not a lot of walkers. Glad we went 🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴

The kids went fishing and loved it. Nice beachfront. We loved the view from the observation deck. I always like it.

This is a wonderful park with beaches, hiking and biking paths and wonderful views. If you're not able to hike or bike, drive around the park and stop at the Perry Monument, lighthouses, beaches. It's definitely a place to enjoy nature and water. Leashed dogs are allowed in the park. During the summer, there are free concerts on the beach.... More

One of the nicest parks with 11 separate beaches which accommodate young children to adults. Active lifeguards, Very Clean beaches. You can bike, rent a segway, or a 4 person covered bike. Enjoy a scenic trip on the Lady Kate....with some Bay history.

Love the beach but can't get to the ocean? This is Pennsylvani's best kept secret. A real gem! You will be amazed at the waves, sea gulls, and all natural occuring sand. There is also great hisory in the area. Visit the information center and learn all it has to offer. Stop at the Tom Ridge Science Center before entering... More
