“Clean beach to lie down and relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

I’m not sure how crowded is this place in mid-season but in September it was come and relaxing even thou the water were freezing. Came with the family and luckily enjoyed a warm whether in mid-September. Arrived there with bike from the Beach Tree Cottages nearby and parked them very close, same if I would arrive by car.
This place is also state park, so just near you can find tables and green grass for the children to play on.
The beach is clean and maintained; there is a small kiosk close so… Can’t say something bad on lie down on the sand, with some ice cream. Enjoy…

We went during the off season and the beach was nearly deserted. It was pretty and I loved the wildlife center.

“Great Day at the beach.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Loved the public restrooms instead of port a potty.
Rocky, shell filled Connecticut sand hurt my bare feet.
Have great campsites, you can even rent an RV from a company that delivers and picks up the RV to the site you rent. Showers are NOT coin operated!
