Well worth the $10 to park. Plenty of park no and the beach is very clean and does have an area with lifeguards.

Allows dogs....what else can I say? Showers are near by. It's a short walk from the parking area to the beach, so it's easily accessible.

Spent a few hours on the beach with family, it was pretty crowded even by 10 am. They charge $2 extra if you’re out of state like we were (NYC), our price was $10, but cheaper then Assateague.

Only $10 for out of state. Such a better sand spot vs inside Ocean city. Dogs allowed, fishing, driving up onto the beach is allowed in the area. Great trip!

Went there for a beach day, very relaxing. Beach in great shape, not too crowded. Basic facilities to wash off sand. Two accesses to beach, although one had a bit too much sand, had to struggle to walk on it. Very basic in the way...More

You can drive on the beach if you have a permit and plan on fishing. The vehicles generally stay together and away from the beach goers. There is plenty of space on this beach and no guards or beach patrol (which we liked). You can...More
