Paved path on bicycles is the best way to see this park. We parked at the lake and cycled through the forests to the beach, then to the end of the park on the road.

Love this place. The campground is great, with lots of space. Even when it's full, you don't notice the amount of people. Everything is well maintained, and rules are respected.

Absolutely loved the long white sand beaches. Was a great place for me to wade in the surf while my husband checked out the rocky ledges for fishing. Totally worth walking out past the first look-out point of the Laptop Spit (there is a decent bathroom there - a "nice" version of an outhouse) to the furthest point on the... More

A great surprise. Lovely beach with great sand dunes and miles of walking. Bit windy but didn't effect our time which included a great beach picnic sat on the logs and driftwood. Got a parking space right at the beach at about 12noon but still didn't seem that busy.
