Stopped in on a week day morning nearly had park to ourselves. Very peaceful and clean, strolled along beach collecting great assortment of shells. Bathrooms and store were neat and clean. Friendly staff! Only $5 to enter and park.

A serene beach away from the urban centers. A dash of history with the nearby fort. A good spot to spend a weekend afternoon.

The air temperature will be fine but the water temp will be too cold to swim for children and only good for a quick dip for adults -if you like cold water !

Thank you for your question. I don't know if people still crab and clam there. I haven't seen anyone do that in decades.
