Horseneck beach has great sand, plenty of beach and clean water. - no seaweed. Used to be fun walking in the sand dunes but can't do that anymore as it is roped off for the birds. Snack bar was closed permanently as lifeguard said it was condemned - an old structure with no bathrooms. Good beach but it used to be so much better.

My husband and I grew up on the Cape and we like this beach just as much if not more than the cape beaches. The beach is so large that you never feel like you are crowded, like the cape can be in the summer. The water is very warm and can be wavy at times, but other times it is very calm. There is a snack bar and the parking is relatively cheap since this is a state beach. It was only $7 last year, compared to $20 at Old Silver. They have bathrooms and areas to shower which were just updated a few years ago. If you haven't gone, you definitely should.

On the summer weekends, we usually go to Horseneck Beach. The pass price, a great deal at $35 for residents, has not gone up in price for many years. The one time visit cost has, going from $7 to $8.

We normally walk the full length of the beach, passing the town beach and wrapping back towards the marina. There has been alot of erosion as seen on the dunes but still a great place to walk, especially towards the marina, as very few people walk that far. The area in front of the reservation has guard towers and is quite busy on weekends.

If you are tenting consider the sites back off the shore. Reason is that there is little space to set up a tent (no grass, the pavement of the road really backs up to the brush, really meant for RVs) and the WIND on that side of the bluff is outrageous! Our tent was staked and almost laying down in the wind. When we took the trip back a few 100 feet to the bathrooms the sites were grassy and wind protected. The fire pits back there are also round not those funny tiny square ones you can not sit around. I know the idea of being next to the water is fun but you will more than likely enjoy your camping more if you stay back a few 100 feet. Also, the beach at the campground is all big rocks, no sand at all. It is beautiful but if you plan to go to the beach take the trip down the road a half mile to the Horseneck state beach were the sand is beautiful and beach is wide.

This is a nice state park beach. It is large, clean, has parking and some restroom facilities. It gets crowded but all nicer beaches are crowded on good beach days. The only negative for me is that there isn't much else around - it's beach only. There are no good resturaunts or other activities.
