The state park has a historical light house and other attractions to visit. We love the camping which you can choose right up near the beach or in the wooded areas. Watch out for the raccoons.

This is one attraction that you sure do not want to miss. Breath taking views and you can see almost the whole island.

One of the most beautiful places on the East coast. Sad to know the park is still closed due to Hurricane Matthew. Wasn't able to visit therefore on this 1/17 trip. Once it is cleaned up plan to make the trip.
