Love the state park...very clean, beach was very clean and we could drive our vehicle right up near the water. No crowds like in the public areas. Fishing was fun and we had a great time.

pro was that it was clean and was constantly patrolled. Showers were not as close as I would have liked. We have 4 little kids and had to constantly watch as they crossed the "road" when they wanted to go to the ocean. Did not like that. Some cars went really fast and didn't look for anybody or anything around... More

Our alternator just couldn't go any farther so we limped into the park. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant and even provided taxi service back to our condo since a cab could not be found. Didn't really experience the park itself but if the staff are representative of the rest of experience I'd highly recommend it.

Been vacationing in Rockport and wanted to come down here to grab a geocache or two. After almost a week, the kids were tired of the beach so we just drove along the shoreline, watched the waves, took a short walk in the sand. Extremely clean and family oriented. I would love to come back in the Spring or Fall... More

This park was fantastic for primitive camping with a 6 and 12 year old children. The beaches are very clean. It was not crowded. The staff and volunteers were super helpful. Mr. Bill was a camp host and offered help and advice multiple times to us. We will definitely be back next year.
