Great biking location. Lots of wildlife and plants to see. We have gone on several "Wild Edible Plants" adventures there. Look for the wild horses in this park. Also be aware or snakes. In 8 hours we saw 10 poisonous snakes.

Went to the park to do some relaxing swimming in the calm bay area. It is a great area for small children or older adults of if you want to get away from the crowds at VB. I would love to camp here sometime in the future.

I am just returning to the East Coast after many yrs out West. My biggest fear was not being able to find any remote beaches. I no longer have to look any further. Coupled with the fact that you can camp on the beach (make your reservations early as spaces are very limited) and when you do need a teeny... More

Our parks are great. This one is beautiful, wooded and near everything, with rental cabins and other options for the more adventurous. Near the ocean and very popular with our guests through the summer. Well maintained and reasonable rates. Book way ahead.

Great place for a leisurely bike ride ... Or a quiet walk .... Just getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

False cape State Park is a wonderful nature reserve. Camping, fishing from the small beaches and taking nature walks are all apart of its draw. There are several nature trails clearly marked for walking or biking. It is definitely a place for those who like to be close to nature. Bathrooms are at the beginning of the nature walks so... More

Off the beaten path + requires some time and effort to get there = only means of access = hike, bike, or boat. No cars allowed beyond the visitor's center. Summers tend to be hot, humid, and buggy, Arrived by boat + camped out a number of years ago during a memorable November weekend. My friends and I had the... More

But you might have to do some work to find it! You have to drive out to Sandbridge (south of V Beach), then drive further south through the dunes to the Back Bay Wildlife area. NOW you can (in the warm weather) take a little tram out and back. OR you can walk. OR you can ride your bike. In... More

I visited False Cape SP on a tour. Because of the tour, my access to the park was via tram. Otherwise, you would have to park vehicle at Little Island Park for overnight visits or Back Bay parking lot for day visits then walk, bike or paddle through Back Bay to FCSP. Note: NO overnight parking allowed in the Back... More
