Great Walk On A Nice Afternoon
Apr 2021
We decided to take an impromptu trip to Pt Pleasant. Not too much open but a nice day for that cool ocean air in your face. I think the Aquarium was open but best to check. Parking was easily available since we went mid week in the spring, but they still get you on the meters. Haven't been here the past few summers because of the crowds and the high price tag.

Very touristy but good for families
Sep 2020 • Family
Typical overpriced touristy stuff, but the kids loved it. Have to pay $10 per adult to use the beach ($11 on holidays), but the convenience is that you can eat at numerous places nearby. You also can shower off and use the bathroom at the bath house. Great if you don’t want to drive home in wet bathing suits.

Used to be good

Been going to Jenkinsons for 17 summers. Time to find a new beach experience even though we live in Point Pleasant Beach. It’s expensive yet super restrictive. Can’t go on the beach after hours to enjoy the ocean and the super high dunes block our longtime view of the Atlantic. We got two beach badges for $100 each and a friend lost one with a week left of the summer. Even though when you buy a beach badge they ask your name, address, phone number and you have a unique badge number, they won’t replace your badge if lost. We had to buy a whole new badge with 10 days to go. But the the worst was the lack of social distancing and no enforcement of mask wearing that made this summer the last straw. We did t feel safe AT ALL. They dont care about us. Bye bye Jenkinsons.

Way too expensive for the basic experience!

Stop charging so much for everything! $11 per person over age 11 to go near the beach, $2.50/hour for parking, etc.

Times have changed
Aug 2020 • Family
Dont know what to say. But during a pandemic, no one Really wore a mask and there were close contacts EVERYWHERE. Indoor place are different. People are required to wear masks. The people on the board walk are destroying the Point pleasent vibe that once was.

Man it has changed ALOT. 80% of people dont wear masks on Boardwalk. No social distancing. Very sad.

awful

I've been a patron of Risdens Beach since the early 70's. It is a different beach now. It used to be a Family element. Lot's of fond memories. Now it's trashed. Out of town people coming, using foul language, boom boxes with offensive rap music, drinking, smoking marijuana. I've actually seen men urinating in the parking lot.
I don't feel safe there anymore 😪. I don't think it will ever recover. The owner of the beach cares more about profit than the safety of family's. It's depressing. I actually bought a beach pass this year and after witnessing all this I haven't been back. It's now a party beach. If you want covid and a loud chaotic 🤪 time. This is your beach.

Jenks_ Clean up your Act!
Aug 2020 • Family
This has been a family trip for years. In light of covid, we did keep to ourselves in the rental for family time, only venturing to the beach daily and a treat or two on the boards. Things are loose on the boards with face coverings, people working, cleaning habits, sanitation, etc. They could have done a lot better. A lot of folks in groups without cover, coughing, sneezing, etc. Day 1 on the beach, trash and garbage
everywhere. Always fireworks and paper, never cleaned up. Enforcing Cooler restrictions and inspections, but not reasonable distances of people. Tons of cops on the beach driving their 4 wheelers like toys, Really Jenkinsons?? We got cooler checked. Signs posted about checks, but no one else was checked in front and behind me and my wife. My huge family went on before and after us with coolers. No checks for the Family, guess cause they are all white. Poor training on behalf of Jenks, for the kids responsible for inspecting. The young lady touched everything in our cooler. GROSS, I dont know you jenks person. We could have easily moved everything around for you to see we were not stashing alcohol. Daily routine of closing gates for access, when they don't have enough staff? The gate was locked up when we tried to get our family and things off the beach at 430pm.. No real planning on JENKS part. We go here because family has been for so many years, but their games and BS with fence lock, cooler inspections and charging to get on to the beach until 9pm is crap. Too many other places to go. We got a lot of territory in Jersey and Deleware to enjoy at the beach. JENKS, not my first pick!!

Nice dinner on the boardwalk
Aug 2020 • Family
We went on Wednesday night with a party of 11, 5 kids and 6 adults, we were seated at two separate tables. The servers are all wearing masks and tables nicely spaced. The menu is slightly limited but the food was good, it’s not gourmet by any means but sitting outside brings a sense of normalcy. We will return.

wristband day in July
Jul 2020
Despite an expected heat index of 104, I brought my 10 yr old son here at the start of a Tuesday wristband day. Parking was easy across the street for $2.25/hr. I paid $9 up front and it was plenty, the main lot at the amusement park is $15 and then 1 block down is $10. They should expedite selling wristbands, as all the employees are lounging in the rides because nobody has a wristband for the first 15 minutes. There is almost no shade here, expect kids to run around without masks and parents to either wear them around their chins or not at all. There was some people trying to enforce masks at times. We wore ours unless drinking water in between rides. The lines were short, despite some ride cleaning in between, we never waited very long. We felt pretty comfortable for our Covid safety based on the crowd size. We went out to the boardwalk and found 2 places that had Dole Whip's in different flavors and would consider returning for other attractions.
