The park was beautiful! An absolute hidden gem. We found sea glass on the beach and there were plenty of birds to watch. They also have cabins to rent that looked very comfortable to stay in. Definitely worth a visit.

Had a really good time camping here and looking for shark teeth. We loved that you had a choice of the beach or the pool. We will be going back each year.

Because the beach front area is so popular on major holiday weekends in the summer, we do not rent the shelter then. We could not guarantee that you or your guests will make it into the park that day. Sorry.
