  • Ocean views, kayaking in the bay, shaded campground, musuem . The only drawback is the crowds nearby.  more »

  • Such a cool place! The wind was crazy the day I was there but I had such a great time hiking and found a whole raft of sea otters thanks to the helpful lady inside the museum. Try and make a stop here if you have the time, the Museum of Natural History is inside the park.
  • It was great! The only downer was the massive amount of bird poo! Most of the park staff was friendly. Just make sure you park in designated areas for overflow or you'll get warnings posted on your vehicle!
