  • Great salt water beach to relax and swim. There's an open grassy area with grills to barbecue and rocky areas to fish from. There is also a campground to enjoy and extend your visit. An awesome CT park for family fun!
  • Great place for picnic, enjoying the beautiful white beach and the gorgeous pavilion. We were there after labor day and it was bit chilly, so couldn't go into the ocean.but the views are terrific and you can walk around the pavilion.really good sweeping views of the Atlantic. If you are visiting during the winter and it has snowed, be mindful while you stroll around. Surfaces are very slippery
