Lori Wilson State Park

It's so beautiful and you can walk into the water so far! Sand is soft and nature trail with boardwalk to beach is amazing! So glad we chose to come here! 💗

The family calls this "I dream of Jeannie beach" because of the street sign out front. It's a favorite for the children because the fine sandy beach is very wide. The water is remarkably shallow for a very long way out but the water is generally calmer here so when the surf is up nearby, Lori Wilson is still swimmable.... More

This was a convenient place to park to get to the beach. We liked the "I Dream of Jeannie" sign at the entrance. Nice boardwalk and a couple of pavilions, but NO restroom or washing station.

We absolutely loved this beach. Only spent one day here but it was perfect for our small children. The water stayed shallow way out which was perfect for the kids to play in and run through. Free parking and showers to wash off outside! Super clean place and great for kids!

This park has all the amenities - bathrooms, showers and even a snack wagon. You walk over the dunes to a magnificent ocean vista with wide sandy beaches. It was pretty crowded the day we went as it was a weekend in the summer, but it was still a relaxing, enjoyable experience. Parking is free.

My partners cousin got married on the beach using one of the vendors. It was amazing. North parking for picnics and wedding and south parking had a dog park. Amazingly clean beach front, although some areas had tons of little rocks by the edge of the water making it sonetimes hard to walk on. Beach shoes recommended.

This park is pretty, with walkways through palms & places to rest. I didn't see much wildlife, but it is a nice & cool walk. There's a dog park & a public beach, where they rent surf boards & others beach items. It has plenty of parking, but on holidays it can fill up fast.

Lori Wilson Park is a great place to make your home base while visiting the beach. Parking is free. There is short walk to the beach. Bathrooms and showers are available as well. There is even a food truck there daily with cold drinks, snacks etc.

we stayed across from the park and beach june 24th thru 27th. we were hoping the beach would be less crowded during the week but it was just as crowded as the weekend. we ended going south on A1A near the air force and found much nicer beaches with less people.

We had a reunion breakfast there. We had trouble with the power but the workers came and helped. Out is clean with nice pavillions and tables. Bathrooms were a ways away but could walk easily. Nice space to gather.
