My boyfriend and I spent the good part of our afternoon exploring trails and getting a little lost. Such a beautiful and well kept area! Great trails that could occupy you for the whole day and more!

The VIsitor's Center on Shore Drive has free history exhibits and beautiful coastline to explore at no cost. Drive up the 64th Street entrance and enjoy the closeness of nature and walk/cycle the easy accessibility trails or simply enjoy nature from your car.

Clean, affordable way to stay at the beach for a few days. Some camping spots are definitely better than others so be sure to take a look at their map. The closer to the beach, the better.

We had a good walk in the woods and went geocaching with my 7 year old son. Fun family activity. The park rangers there were very helpful and informative.

We went here for a bit of exercise and came back with an education on the flora and fauna of the area. We never expected that this was a pirate area nor that it is the most northern area where there is Spanish moss hanging fro the trees. Lots to see and learn and great for the kids.

There is a fee after a certain time of day. It can be crowded in the early morning. I observed several people catching fish although they were not very big.

Very historic setting with a great visitors center and display of the story of the first landing of the Jamestown colonists here in 1607. Lots of history about the Powahatans and other local native tribes and peoples. Electric and potable water hookups, plus dump station. Fabulous walks, clean beaches, and in November, not a lot of people. Rangers were friendly... More

Lots of nice trails, but parking can be a pain in the summer. From September to May the place is a nature lover's paradise.

We hiked one trail and it was absolutely beautiful. It was an easy hike and everyone we met on the trail was so friendly.
