Beach is nice and uncrowded even during the summer. Plenty of sand to lay out or for a stroll. Parking is not a problem. Can easily bike to it as the bike path goes through the entire park. Plenty of restrooms near by.

My friend who lives here took me to this beach for a walk- it was not crowded, the sand was beautiful, beach clean. Simply just a perfect day and time to walk on this beach.

I went for a walk on this beach since my hotel was only a short distance away. The scenery was fantastic, and it wasn't that crowded at the time I was there. Great place for a sunset!

Dogs are not allowed on the state beach, but there are plenty of other beaches in Ventura that allow dogs on the beach.
