Go early for the mile hike to the beach for great birding along the way. The beach is small, but you can search for fossils. We went on a Sunday and the park got very crowded later in the day.

There is an entrance fee to this park. It has a number of hiking trails each with varying difficulties and lengths. We all enjoyed the trails which were amply supplied with resting places and even supplied bags so that we could throw out our trash!...More

Easy two mile walk to water. Many people digging thru sand looking for shells etc. They have a bin at end of trail with kids sand buckets etc to enjoy.

My family loves going to this park. There are so many walkways throughout the woods to choose from. The walk will take you down hills and some precious spots to stop and sit for a bit and soak it all up. The trees keep you...More

We are considering this as a summer sometime during the second and third week of August but are concerned about the jellyfish and the stinging flies. Should we wait and go during a different time of year or the kids and dog remain happy in August? Thank you.

How do you make a reservation? I can't get anyone to return my call.
