I loved it very cleaned and respectful people that come visit this beach and with a convenient store that sells cooked food and the restroom and shower and parking all there close by the beach. My kids loved it.

Bathrooms were terrible dirty some no toilet paper. After all renovations and money we pay someone should be stocking up the bathrooms and cleaning them

We took our teenagers for a 4 mile hike today and it was great. Beautiful views. Nice hills. Fragrant forest trails. We had 3 teenage boys with us and they loved it. We went from forest to beach and back.

Great day trip for couples, families or friends. Great for walking, running, hiking and sunbathing. Also nice to just sit and read a book. In the summer they have live music and food specials

This is a state beach and picnic area. Certainly you could have a casual picnic party if that is what you choose.
