We snagged a picnic table under the shade for lunch, then started walking out towards the island. The tides change every day so be sure to check if you want to go so the way out. Got to see some horseshoe crabs as well!

Located in Long Island sound in Milford, this park has acres of beach, dunes, salt marsh, grassland and an open area of woods to explore.

My son brought us here for a pleasant walk with views of Long Island Sound. Plenty of beaches, parking and fresh sea air. I have been coming to visit here for many years, so it was nice to finally come to the beach,

Great state park to visit in the area. Grounds are well kept and you get a great view of Charles island. Parking fills up fast so be sure to get there early.

We were looking for a great walking path (because we love to walk and we are visiting from out of town) and we found it here!! We actually walked 3.2 miles on the boardwalk!! GREAT scenery walking along the shoreline! We wore our masks, as requested by signage, but noted that a number of others did not. Point of note on parking: being out of state (Maryland), we noticed the parking QR code and information on the signage. We followed all of the steps but could never get the information to load so we could pay for the parking. A couple of locals came by and they even tried to help us but to no avail. We/they even called 4 different organizations, including the local and state police, and no one could help us with paying for our parking. We ended up just staying parked there and did not get a ticket or towed!! Not sure what was up with the parking but we appreciated being able to park there and take our walk!! Thanks Connecticut. You are great hosts!!

We had a lovely walk on the boardwalk and saw some brant geese. Just perfect for an off season stroll. We’ll be back in the spring to see the wildlife in the sea grass.

Beautiful views at sunset... no matter which month... living nearby such incredible locations allows one to take them fo granted... such a great place for a walk, and of course, best location for sunset pictures

I've been in the summer but it is just as good in the winter. They have wooden pathways and bridges that were mostly cleaned off. It was beautiful and so much fun. The perfect pandemic day.

This is a very nice beach and a state park, however the boardwalk is ridiculously long. There is no way to go around the boardwalk.

A beautiful site and wonderful in winter or summer. Great restaurant down the road called The Greek Spot Cafe and Grill. Would suggest a walk at the park and then go have a meal there.
