Just visited recently with my kids, ages 11 and 5! Lots of fun. Built sand castles, went to the playground at beach 6. There's volleyball nets at some beaches. You can bring food to cook out! Rent kayaks or just walk the path! Don't forget to stop at Sara's on your way home! Great food and ice cream!

One of the loveliest state parks ever...wonderful beaches and close to the city. Parking is free. But arrive early to get the best spots close to your chosen beach (7 miles of sand and beaches). Most beaches have lifeguards, a comfort to Moms with little ones.

I have visited many times but not for a long time. It was easy to get around and trails were well-marked. Lots of places to park and look at the water or take walks.
