I've been to this Park several times before, but it's not the easiest to find. Really back in the "Boonies" - no real landmarks to go by. In fact, there wasn't even a sign telling you this was a Park until about 5 or 6 years ago.The parking lot is on the left off of Liverpool Point Road - small lot. Once turning onto Liverpool Point Road, you drive approx. 3 - 4 miles and you'll see the Park sign. Once parked - cross the road and follow the trail for about 3/4 of a mile down to the shoreline. Fossil hunting is a big draw here - loads of shark teeth and apparently 4 different kinds of crocodile teeth to find. The fossils here date to around 60 million years ago - during the Paleocene Period. Best to go with a group if you do go as this Park is very remote and their is no staff here. The Park comes under the control of Smallwood State Park to the North of Purse, but I've never seen a ranger or Park staff person here. Enjoy!
