Standing on the edge of the shear cliffs looking out over the ocean - you can't but that kind of experience. Well worth the journey off the beaten path.

There are very few places in the entire country that can match this park for the natural beauty and fantastic views. The are miles of easy and moderate trails. All are kept in excellent shape. There is even some interesting local history...

Coming to Shore Acres was the best place our family visited during the Christmas holidays. It is by far the best display of Christmas spirit we encountered this past December. E plan to make this an annual trip.

We were just there! During the Holiday lights it is $5 cash unless you are staying in a State Park or have an annual park pass then it is free. Just show your paperwork or pass at the entrance.
