You can be completely alone in the trails, let the dogs run. So wonderful in the middle of a populated city. The water is beautiful. Great stuff.

Beautiful, unspoiled, this is how the natural beach and wildlife should be viewed. Take the kids to the nature center for the hands-on display. Make sure to take the trail to the beach!

We stopped off to have a look at the park and will definitely be back to camp out soon! Camp sites are wooded but private and appears to have camp sites with beach access!

We enjoyed going here over the summer to visit the rope swing. But it was taken down and i'm sure it was for a good reason (i.e. safety). Nice beach and away from the tourists.

We stayed here the weekend of September 5, 6, and 7. We arrived at 2:30, though it says check in is not before 4pm. They assigned us a loop and said to pick our own spot. Multiple people had already checked in, we ended up getting the last spot available in loop C, which was a terrible spot. We were... More

My son decided to get married on the beach and they chose the state park because is was cheaper and less crowded than the beach. It seemed nice. Long walk to water over a boardwalk. The front gate did not seem to know anything about the wedding planned and all offices were closed for the day at 5 and wedding... More

I wasn't here very long. I went to watch the sunset over the bay. There is a small fee to park. The area is great because there are fewer people. The waves are smaller there. There were all sorts of big ships in the bay which were fun to watch. I loved seeing the bay bridge-tunnel.

Interesting hike with historical highlights. We also were treated to some fantastic beach combing--whale bones had washed ashore!

Visited for a day from v beach for a quiet relax away from the bustle of v beach. Paid $4 for parking and then found the small beach off the main road. Some toilets and cold drink vending but that's is about it. You can hire boats, jet skis and alike but it is very quite there so bring your... More
