Visited on 7/26/2012 with 2 year old and 4 year old, and we had a great time! Kids ran around the fort and then we headed for the beach. Visited on a weekday in the summer and there was ample parking in all lots, and not crowded. Also, at the area we stopped there was a small snack stand and gift shop (with the normal tourist gear). Bathrooms were average beach variety, and fresh water showers located steps from the sand. They have a dog area to take your best friend on the beach, next time we will bring Fido. Also, $5 entry fee per vehicle, which I felt is a small price to pay for a great day. BUT this is a no alcohol beach, so leave your beer at home (Hubby was a little sad by this)
