Beautiful white sand clean beach with it's own pet friendly beach area. Concession building with umbrella tables and plenty of refreshing snacks and beverages. Restroom facilities are kept clean and there are outside shower areas to wash the sand off.

Beautiful but cold morning. Took the two mile hike (easy terrain). Saw a barred owl, many osprey (two eating pin fish), red bellied woodpecker and much more. If you don't like birds, this is a nice short hike. Of course, wildlife doesn't have a schedule,...More

They have a fabulous pet friendly beach and our goldondoodle had the time of her life! It was a very clean beach and they had trash cans ready for pet waste. We would visit again!

We all had a great time. We had a five year old and A3 year old and they loved picking up shells and playing in the water. Since it was Thanksgiving we didn't have to deal with any crowds or anything it was very nice
