  • Love the spacious lots . Love the beach. Quiet and relaxing. We will definitely come here again. We stayed in the RV area. Hook up to water and electricity, and we had 50 amp service. You have to go to a dump station if you need to dump. Overall it was great. There are bath and wash houses. The one we had was air conditioned. Plenty of hot water. Down side only two showers, but I only had to wait one time on shower and not long. Very nice facilities. I will definitely come here again. Beach was beautiful!

  • Gorgeous beach, very clean! Clear water for days! Not crowded at all, in fact on this day we were one of the first people there. Snorkeling here was great, lots of sea life! They also have lovely covered shelters with picnic tables and outside grills if you want to have a meal. The showers were our saving grace, or else our car would have been super sandy. Something I wish someone had told me... don't over pack for your day. Less is more and trust me you don't want to pack a bunch of stuff back to the car after the sand and sun.

  • This park is great. They have facilities for showering off, eating, and multiple boardwalks to get to the beach. They also have camping. If you get there after lunchtime on a weekend you might not get a spot though as it gets pretty busy. There's a fee per car or per person depending on the number of people you're coming with but it's very reasonable (~$2/person).

  • Great private beach that charges admission. During tourist season and holidays, go early or you will not be allowed in once they reach capacity. Bathrooms and pavilions are a plenty. There's really no "bad" parking spot, as it's all super close to the sand. They have camp sites as well. Love that they have a church service on the sand on Sunday nights. How neat!

  • If I could give 10 stars I would have! The emerald color water was crystal clear. I could see my feet clearly on chest deep water. You can see all the fishes around you! Great facilities. A must do if you are near the area.
