We travelled to this park from our condo down the road. We were interested in hiking, which we did, but there is only a short trail. Pay at the guard booth and self parking. There's a trail to follow that takes you across the bridge...More

Aside from some extra movement from the water...it was fabulous! Everything was clean...showers, beach, parking and of course the beach! The boardwalk to the beach is a nice walk, you can jump on the golf cart limo and enjoy the ride over. Enjoy the views!...More

This is a place you need to visit. Its a at least half day trip. Turtles,beach, canal. Everything at the same place. You need to pay a small entrance fee (cash).

A treasure of nature within steps from the highway. Enjoy walking paths and water access for kayaking or just viewing. Do not miss the opportunity to visit.

This State Park is a real hidden treasure. Beautiful, well maintained park with different water activities available. We went kayaking in a double kayak. Beautiful scenary. Staff very helpful.

They have a program set up so that you can go as a group with a guide to watch nesting sea turtles. Although we were only able to see a turtle come out of the water from a distance it was still a fun experience!

Ordinarily not enough surf unless you wait until Fall and some Nor'easters come crashing in. Fall and winter would be you best time and then it is catch as catch can.
