“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is is one picture worthy place. Kastinas Creek valley is beautiful. I went kayaking along the creek and you could not find such serinity in many other places. Beautiful wildlife too.

“July 4th Fireworks”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

We visited for the July 4th fireworks. Very crowded. Found a great place to sit just off the paved foot path and across from the beach. Not much available for shops or snacks. Not a worry as I had brought drinks and snacks. We were pleasantly surprised that there was swimming available and many people cooling off in the water. Although we did not have a suits I let my daughters swim in their shorts since we had two hours before the fireworks. Not a good choice as my 6 year old was stung by a jellyfish. Who would have thought of jellyfish in the York River. The nearby medics inplace for th fireworks were great in treating her and shared that they did not rocommend any to swim as they had had an usually high number of jellyfish stings due to the extremely hot waether. Wish I had known that before! No signs were posted. We did not let that spoil our fun. The fireworks were amazing!! Three times my 10 year old thought the finale was occurring. We parked up on the batlefield as was suggested. The crown control was fantastic and we were out of there in a reasonable amount of time.

Definitely enjoyed this attraction. We went in early June so the weather was great and crowds were minimal.
