Reviewed September 12, 2013

I loved this little preserve with wonderful trails and thousands of birds! I was pretty much alone there most of the time. Beautiful!

“somewhat sandy beach to lounge at”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

though it does not have good facilities, only portapotties, has good parking and trails are well kept. we try and go ever few weeks to have fun and ensure that the trash is picked up. lots of good bird viewing opportunities. is very shallow and tidal so you can play in the water to an extent but the current does rip out into the Port of Susan, so don't go too far out.

“Hobbit Trail!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This park is a hidden gem that many locals don't even know about. Lots of sandy beach when the tide is out. Great for sand castles with the kids.

This is an excellent place for bird watching (song birds, raptor birds, and both salt and fresh water aquatic birds). I love this place.

This is an excellent place to hike around. There is a very cool trail called the Hobbit Trail. This trail forces you duck your head a bit as you walk through the Hawthorne and Pacific Nine Bark bushes. It creates a cool tunnel of plants.

There is a freshwater pond as well as intertidal lands with loads of plant diversity and animal diversity. I've seen lots of different bird species, coyotes, and deer. I also hear it's a good place to catch sturgeon from a boat.

Great for kids to hike the easy going trails. Kids can build forts in the driftwood. And lots of sand to build whatever comes to mind.

If you like tracking and learning about tracking different creatures, its a great place. Lots of sand to make it easy to learn.

“Iverson Spit”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

Best place in the area to walk on the beach, with or without your dog(s). Adequate parking, outstanding shoreline preservation; still a work in progress.
