very clean, gorgeous state park with lovely beach area. The boat ramp has ample parking. Bristol Town Beach next to Colt State is beautiful too with playground & picnic areas, use same entrance to Colt State Park.

“Spend a Relaxing Day Outdoors”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

It is a park with a nice bike path, very small beach, but lots of grassy areas for having a picnic, kite flying, or taking a nap. Myself, I would prefer the ocean shoreline.

What's better than a lovely drive around this gorgeous waterfront park...great walking paths and the East Bay Bike Path crosses through it on your way to Bristol! Beautiful.
