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.

My family and I have been coming here for years. Absolutley the place! We have stayed in the cabins and also set up tents. We love to search for sharks teeth and use the boat launch for our kayaks. Beautiful views.

We were in cabin ten on our second visit. It was neat because it was one of the original log cabins built. The downside was that it did not have a screened porch. We scoped out other cabins, and think that maybe 23 and... More

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.
