Colt State Park is a great location for a walk along the coast, or a bike ride on the paved trails. It’s a great park with plenty of parking. They also have locations for picnics and grilling.

Yes, there are areas for grilling with picnic tables. It appeared that the locations “sites” were numbered - almost like you could some how reserve a location. We did not grill... we just walked around the coast line
