I used to frequent this place as a kid. Now I look at it and cringe. Parking is actually decent. There are a bunch of covered picnic tables with BBQs, so that s nice, but it's definitely dingy. I would not let my kid in...More

Many families come here because of the picnic and BBQ areas. Very load and way, way too many kids. Mother's Beach has had an F rating due to pollution for a very long time. I would never put even a toe in the water.
