“Love it”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

I went to Goddart State Park for the beach. I am from NJ so I'm used to paying to go to the beach, and having very few facilities if any. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this beach is free and there is a beautiful bathhouse facility right at the beach.

Having lived in FL and NJ, I am a little biased about beaches so I will say that the sand here is kind of funky. But otherwise, this beach was peaceful and very pretty, uncrowded (I went on a Saturday), plenty of parking, benches, and the office even provides trash bags so you can carry out your trash.

“Nice oasis”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

A few miles from my home. Idyllic spot (usually) of great natural beauty. Rolling terrain, stately trees, paths through the woods. When I take my dog, Blizzard, I'm reminded of what the word "gambol" means. Nice spot for a walk, run, or bike ride. Also has a beach on Greenwich Cove and a golf course. Can be crowded and loud on summer weekends.

“Picnic on the grass, lay on the beach or visit the stables!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

On a sunny summer afternoon, this place has everything. Walk through the woods, visit the beachfront, there are stables nearby to ride horses, and even hit the golf course next door. Some weekends, car enthusiasts line the road with their autos. The park is spacious - often many large gatherings are taking place simultaneously (family reunion cookouts, that sort of thing).

If you're most inclined to go for the beach experience, be sure to check the local paper or news prior to making the trip. Occasionally the bacteria levels spike (as is the case with several low surf areas) and they do close the waterfront- while the rest of the park is fully operational.

Overall, this park is peaceful and well maintained.
