What a great place for family fun and get togethers. Covered picnic tables and wooden walkways, lead to a beautiful beach and lots of room to play. Almost forgot, wash rooms are available.

We visited for the 4th and enjoyed it! Spent the day on the beach, showered in the public restrooms and returned that evening for fireworks!

We were excited to be able to drive down on the beach and "tailgate" a little, but was very disappointed that people seem to totally trash this beach and leave it a real mess.

This beach is the place to go to enjoy a great surf and sand. Large enough that you never feel crowded and a great family feel.

Nice Beach with covered picnic areas and good parking. The bathrooms are not being maintained very well so detracts from what would be a great beach. The beach itself is wonderful, we rode horses there and it was so pretty.

Technically No. However there is camping in the parking area. We have seen camping on the beach but the Sheriff's department may ask you to leave. This area is heavily patrolled.
