The park is beautiful and secluded. The water is really calm and it's nice to climb to the top of the dunes to get a higher up view of the place. There are no bathrooms or things of the like here, so plan accordingly. It's...More

This place is one of my favorite local spots. However, make sure you only park in the designated lot (only about 7 spots or so) otherwise you WILL get ticketed. It is a short and beautiful walk from the lot to the bluffs.... be prepared...More

Called "Pirates' Cove" by local teens this is a lovely spot in a somewhat hidden area. There is a small beach with surrounding dunes but no apparent facilities. Plan ahead to carry out trash etc. and note that the parking limitations are strictly enforced.

What a gorgeous beach and bay. Lovely for a peaceful stroll watching the world go by and looking at two beaches at once from the top of the cove. We had no trouble parking when we turned up around 4.30pm on a pretty grey day....More

I've been coming to Poquott/Port Jeff since I was an infant and have visited the "cove" via boat only a couple of times. Discovering this little park mentioned in the paper was a happy surprise. It has a great view of the harbour and Poquott...More

I am not sure. I have a general impression that they "close" at sundown but it could just be based on what many parks do. In a couple of weeks I'm heading up for a short stay in Poquott & I know I'll be visiting the park so... More
