Limekiln State Park Reviews & Ratings
Great park for a short hike/outing with kiddos. We did the falls trail and kilns, Fitbit said 4 miles round trip and 170 ft elevation gain. Kiln trail is easy/moderate. The falls trail is moderate as you have to cross the stream several times. Our three year old walked all the way to the falls, only requiring assistance on the stream crossings. Only negative to mention is the lack of interpretive signs at the kilns. They look cool, but no information provided in their history. There is beach access from the parking lot. Beach is small but fun. Strong riptides here so NOT a swimming beach, but there is plenty of sand, and the stream flows right out into the ocean here. $10 for day use access. Restrooms and drinking water available. There is a very small store at the entrance, but selection is minimal, more like emergency supplies. Food and snacks available 2 miles north in town.
Quick easy breezy and adventurous hikes to the water fall and the kilm oh and the Beach! The hikes are on one side and the the beach with picnic tables and awesome tiny pebbles sand on the other side. There’s a kelp forest right by the coast and it’s not a swim but you can lightly play around and dip your feet... Camping requires reservations and day use is $10 when available. Bathrooms available Showers available minute per quarter No food places around
I saw my very first bug ape here!!! Amazing! They’re so beautiful 😍 bug apes are my favorite marine creature. Also, they have many squirrels! If you’re fast you can catch and eat them, they were very tasty and saved us plenty of money on food!
All I got to say is, make sure you have plenty of gas before you get out here. The price is high, but i can see why. It is much of a drive to get here. I have nothing bad to say about this place. I was actually thankful to run across it to get some gas. This route is not one you want to run out of gas on!
This park was beautiful! There was a number of spots where the falls trail was washed out and badge for some interesting scrambling across the creek but good hiking nonetheless. Oceanside of the park was gorgeous and my kids loved splashing in the ocean!
