If you have dogs this is a great place. The dogs are generally very well behaved. And the owners do a good job of cleaning up

Our dogs love this beach. They get to roam around off leash! They usually have a life guard available to keep everyone safe

We were without a dog, but my hands were rewarded. We laughed at the tiny Yorkie's first experience with the ocean. The two labs were born to body surf. But it was the Greyhound attacking the foam that made us sit on the sand instead...More

Yes you can swim there. The water is pretty warm not bad. Some of the surfers wear wet suits but most don't. Hope you have a great time !

Huntington State & City Beach have campgrounds. You could put up a tent of this type. Free standing tents you don't see. Most campers are motorhomes or trailers
