Very nice park. This is a very hilly park. A walk to the beach is a worthwhile hike. The hike back is rather difficult for anyone not a person in shape. The water view is very nice and relaxing. Beautiful forest area.

Lovely place for easy walks in the woods and along the shore. We went with someone who has foot problems and she did well on the flat trails and roads.

Nice park, lots of benches to sit and relax. Like to walk the trails on the north side. There are also south trails that wander by the water.

Great for hiking, families and their fur babies and hiking on trails to the water. When tide is out great rocky beach.

The best place to go and play in the water is Tolmie State Park. Other sand beaches are mostly private.
