We were excited to find this beach, as most beaches in this area have shelly/rocky beaches that are hard to access. This beach had a nice park, picnic areas and restrooms. Our 11 year olds enjoyed their time there.

Bath house pretty crummy but beach is super nice. Soft sand and debris free. Fun to collect flat rocks for painting.

I've gone to this beach, since the 1960's. It is a great little beach for swimming and sunbathing and a picnic. Good for families.

We were overwhelming pleased with the cleanliness of the beach, the water and the playground area (except for a few bees that were in the area). My 4, 5 and 8 year old grandchildren had a blast! Looking forward to returning again. $5 to park.

I can't say enough good things about this beach! It was clean, had a playground, and bathrooms (well, port a potties- but they were clean!) nearby. There is a $5 fee for parking, but we didn't mind. If we are ever in this area again...More

This beach has potential to be great. But its filthy. Dead fish litter the shoreline, debris everywhere. We paid $5 to park there so I know people are there than can clean this place up.

Although it was off season, May 2017, It offered a wonderful area for kids to play and adults to walk the beach. Clean with the exception of debris from the harsh winter but I am confident this will be taken care of due to the...More

This was our second visit to this beach. This time it wasn't warm enough to swim so we went kite flying. Very clean beach with plenty of room to run around. The playground is very nice & up to date. It's kind of off the...More

Not that I've ever noticed but I've never checked though either. This is a smaller beach with the bare minimals.
