This state park is a nice, pet and family friendly place to take an easy hike. The trails are mostly shaded, easy to follow, and well maintained. The visitor center and the marina both have indoor restrooms. No matter the season, don't forget bug spray....More

There is no day use fee. However, there are specific open and closing hours and the gate is locked while the park is closed. Fires are allowed in designated areas only, such as the campground, no beach fires.
