Although we have driven through Goddard with a car, which is beautiful, most of our visiting is bringing our boat over and anchoring off the beach. We love anchoring, and swimming off the boat, or just relaxing after a day on the water, The land...More

The park was relaxing. The beach was clean and everyone seemed to be having a nice day. We certainly did. I would highly recommend Goddard State Park.

Hubby and I enjoyed this beach. It is small but the sand is clean and water is relatively clean. Bathrooms are terrible, someone pooped on the floor, and no one around to clean it up. Be mindful of the bathrooms, otherwise its a great spot.

Goddard State Park has only become better over the years - i visited this park after a gap of several years - its quiet beaches are well maintained and the sunsets are gorgeous as ever. Great for families to experience.

Hi, it will not let me post a web site on this answer. But you need to go on the Goddard memorial park site and look for the C & L Stables link. That will give you what you need.

Yes well behaved pets are welcome. But it is up to the pets people to pick up after them. So bring a baggie and water for your pet, so they can enjoy the park too. I used to bring my iguanas to the park and let them... More
