“Fun for All!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Whether walking, beachcombing, surfing, boogie boarding, swimming, socializing, camping, playing, flying kites, wind surfing, paddle surfing, surf fishing - this is the place for all. Take your portable shade pop-up and you'll be set for all day. Dog friendly, but be sure to take your leash.

If you have not driven much on sand in your 4x4 - if it's hot and the sand is really soft - let the air down in your tires for better traction. (Remember to stop at the service station and refill before hitting the road home.)

Stop in at the north pier for lunch (great burgers, hot dogs and fries) or top floor cocktails or a cold refreshing beer.

“LOVE THE BEACH!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Being able to drive out on the beach and set up camp is absolutely wonderful!! I would do this any day rather than rent a room. They clean the port a john's every morning, and empty trash barrels. The local PD drives up and down the beach frequently and respond when needed.
There are lots of vendors in the summer with everythihg from ice, to fishing bait, to pizza!
Been doing this for years! Won't stop now :)

“4x4 heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I am a local who can honestly say that Freeman Park (aka The NorthEnd) is a definite if you are visiting the area. If you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle (or an AWD) then this is the place for you. You just drive on, reverse it in your spot and open the hatch. No more lugging your beach stuff, finding a parking spot and worry about a parking meter. You can either get a season pass or pay per day.
