Silver Sands State Park, Milford

Offering seemingly endless opportunities for exploring and general adventure, Silver Sands State Park features long stretches of beaches, sand dunes, salt marshes, and woods. The park was established following the 1955 hurricane that destroyed many local homes. Come for the swimming, hiking, and bird watching, and stay for the picnicking spots and long walks. The water is clear and warm, offering nature lovers a clear window into the world of seashells and schools of fish. A bird sanctuary makes up part of the park, and is the rumored home of Captain Kidd's buried treasure.

  • What a beautiful place, not crowded at all! On the boardwalk you walk over a marshy area, we actually saw a crab snacking on the little fish in there. We also saw Rallus with some babies. Then we walked out on the sand bar! I highly recommend this place.
