So beautiful state park. A viewing platform on top of a dune.
It's 193 steps to the platform. But along the stairway are benches. There are several trailheads. Start from Gillette Nature Center. Get the map, watch movie about dunes and enjoy your day at Hoffmaster State Park.

We have visited this campground multiple times each year for about 20 years. It is a beautiful park with a lot of campsites (make reservations...it is often full), a beach that goes on for miles, lots of hiking trails and a nature center. We've always been pleased with the helpful staff who have enforced the rules for the safety and benefit of all guests.

Sadly, I don't know if there has been a change in management, but this year there was a marked difference in the way the rules were (or were not) enforced. Having random cars parking on your site, as well as dogs on the beach, are two things that need to be addressed. Hopefully next summer these issues will be monitored more closely so this park can be top notch again.

I love Hoffmaster. It is a great place to walk, hike, picnic, and/or swim. There is lots of parking. A great place to watch the sunset!

This park is totally awesome. The dunes, the sand, the sun, water and just a good time. There is an activity center to go to first right inside the park. There is a lot to learn about the trees, flowers, animals, insects and the dunes too. We really enjoyed this. You can spend 15 min. to an hour here. You have about 1/2 mi. to get to the beach. There are stairs until they were washed away and you have to walk or run down the dune. Would not recommend for small children or elderly. Tough climb up too. Just soooo beautiful.

It's not the ocean but hey that just means no saltwater. Had a great time playing at the beach with the family it was 9 dollars to get a day pass onto the state park but I feel it was well worth it.
