“Great Park.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 NEW

The park is huge, but in order to access the islands you need your own boat. The park has a lighthouse, reefs, and sunken ships, however, this is miles off shore and no ferry provided. The park accessible by car or bike is still worth a trip. The park has a beach, you can fish, have a picnic, check out the visitor center and exhibition, or just walk along the shore. They used to rent kayaks and hopefully they will start again soon as it is a beautiful location to ocean kayak. Black Point is also a part of the park but a few miles north. This is a great place to bike.

“No boat, no great beach”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 NEW

Nice park but with few roads so that a boat becomes necessary. The beach is not great, especially when compared to South Beach.

“Great for kids...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I like this place because it's quiet...during the week.
I take the kids, and I can just relax while they play.
The water is shallow, and they close the beach early.
We always go during the week because there is less visitors.
The restaurant/grille uptop is alright...nothing special...however I think it lacks attention....it's missing something.

“Peak is great - limited support functions”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

The park itself would be rated much higher; however the support staff and amenities were very sub-par. The recent concessionaire issues drastically affected the ability to further explore the park. We walked around the footpath near the visitor center and it was tremendously littered. Bad to see that on our national parks. Staff was less than helpful and had no enthusiasm on dealing with visitors or activity options.
