This is a very pleasant beach where you can bring the whole family. You can rent kayaks and canoes and it is never very crowded. The picnic area and the games for the kids are an extra bonus.

I would suggest hiring different staff for the rentals for next season. This place is a nice quiet little non tourist area. we loved going there and renting the equipment. But on the last day they ran out of forms to rent anything. I cant tell you how many people were upset and wanted to rent the boats, ect. According... More

We went on a Wednesday afternoon. We actually rented a canoe and kayak that morning (about 10 am) for a couple of hours (around I think $15 per rental for two hours). The canoe trip was beautiful along with being fun. The mountain scenery was great. The water was a little low in places but was OK since we still... More

Wilmington Town Beach was close to our Inn. The beach area is very clean and there is a nice pavilion and park area. There is also a big parking lot. This is great for families.

It's surreal how peaceful and beautiful this place is! There was a free concert the day we were there, which was lovely. Kayaked in the river, swam and had a lovely time.

We were visiting from Sweden where you are free to swim anywhere you choose. We have been surprised at restrictions on where swimming is allowed here. This is the only place in the town where swimming is allowed in the river and then only with a guard on duty and in the roped off area. However its very nice and... More

If I could give this place six stars, I would.....IT IS THAT GOOD :) Anyone who has young children that love to dig in the sand, swim in refreshing clean water; and meet other young children at a wonderful family spot, should think about spending a few summer days here. They offer a weekly series of summer concerts on Thursday... More

This beach is a great place to eat outside in Wilmington. There are picnic tables and some grills available for use. There are also bathrooms which is very convenient. The beach has a swimming area, a playground and a volleyball net. The view is gorgeous!
