This is very well run State Park. It offers plenty of Oceanside parking,great beaches to walk on, shells, sand castle opportunities. The favorite time here is fall when it's still warm, but not so crowded!

Beautiful island park, lots to explore on the ocean. The trails were great. Lots of birds, including bald eagles nesting to see.

I love to go here take a chair and a good book sit by the ocean and relax. I just wish it didn't cost $5 to get in

Our camp site was next to the kids play park. The wind was blowing during our stay and the play park made all the difference for our three kids.

I've camped all over the Southeast and this is in my top 2 (the other being Mt Mitchell State Park in N.C.) If you are tent camping, you are within 25 feet of the surf at high tide. I wouldn't even WANT to be any closer! Site 41 is very large and right by the beach access if you can get it. Make sure to climb the lighthouse and hike out to the marshes.
