Visited July 10th 2011. A well-kept and convenient state park with plenty of parking for the beach. Get here before 9 am though, because the spaces on the limited amount of sand fill up quick. The beach and water are pretty rocky but that's to be expected at the sound. Tip- visit Pop's concession stand on the western most part of the beach for a New-England style footlong hotdog for $3.25. Overall a pleasant experience- more room than L.I. Beaches but this isn't the Caribbean.
