We camped in our travel trailer this past weekend and can't wait to go back! This place is beautiful and so well maintained. Peaceful getaway for sure! It's in my top 5 favorite campgrounds.

My first time to the park today. Very Pretty! The golf course was my destination and I found it both quite lovely and challenging. It's worth the visit to this hidden and out of the way park.

Nice picnic areas, playground for kids, and peaceful getaway. My grandchildren had a great time swimming, playing, and looking for shells.

Excellent for walking or running. Tails are pretty cool but come to a dead end. The beach area is absolutely gorgeous and great for kids!

There's a beach with a swimming area (and a handicapped swimming area) near the picnic area. I'd post the state park map but this format here won't let me post web links. The website says swimming is "seasonal."
