  • Above average destination for where it is. There is a 1.8 miles hike for the parking area to the waterfront, through some pretty neat beaver generated wetlands. The waterfront is okay. Don’t know if I would swim or play in the water, but apparently there are lots of shark teeth around. I will probably go back at some point, but if I was looking for water fun, I would just complete the trip to Assateague next time. Hope this review was useful. Cheers.
  • Excellent park! Very helpful rangers. You should plan better than I did for the 2 mi hike to the beach from the parking area. (Just didn't do my research!) There are several hiking trails that are great. Beach is clean and water calm.
