I really enjoy walking my dog during the off season. NOT happy with people that don’t follow the leash law rules.

Beautiful sand beach, but be careful if you want to swim, the ground is full of shells, you should keep shoes. The place is nice to hike, too.

Good place to walk by the beach and enjoy nature, or go for a swim. Bathrooms are roomy and clean. Plenty of shaded picnic areas.

Really nice beach- comfortable - not too crowded but the geese are disgusting. There are geese droppings all over the walkways. They really need to do something about that.

Was not impressed. While it looks pretty from afar (and in pictures online) it was actually quite dirty. While I loved the paved paths and green grassy areas it was hard to enjoy them because of all the trash and goose poop.

We had a gorgeous warm, breezy visit to this huge state park. The beach looked inviting and we need to come back this summer! Loved just walking around...plenty of parking, picnic tables, views, facilities and geese! The 911Memorial is great.
