“Nice to have a local beach in town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Smallish beach on the James River. Clean. Kick your shoes off and bury your toes in the sand!
Good fishing pier on site and nice play area for the kids close by.

“nice place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

i do alot of kayaking, and you can launch your kayak for free out there and fish by the james river bridge. fishing is pretty good off shore there, alot of croaker. the kids park was also recently re-done and its nice as well. they have a stocked trout pond, however fishing that isnt very good, prob due to the amount of algie in the water.

“Small but ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I went to Huntington Park Beach for relaxation, however it was packed. However I went to Buckroe Beach and had a much better time, was able to relax and enjoy my time there, highly recommended.

“Beach was great but . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We took an extended weekend to Hampton/Newport News, VA. We always visit Huntington Beach Park because it's less crowded than Buckroe Beach and Virginia Beach. We had hoped to spend most of the day at the beach and wanted to graba bite to eat at the little eatery there on the beach. It was supposed to open at 11 but we waited and waited until we decided to pack up and leave. it was a Saturday and it really should have been up and running. There were several families there and we weren't the only ones waiting for the eatery to open. It would be nice if the eatery took debit or credit cards as not many beach goers carry cash on the beach with them.
