  • This was an amazing place for our dogs to play! There was plenty of room; it was easy to park and really clean with the garbage collection at the gate. Friendly people and happy dogs!  more »
  • We stayed two nights. Totally enjoyed being next to a fantastic dog beach. Beautiful sunsets and close to town. Definitely will stay there again.  more »

  • A very quiet and awe inspiring beach. We camped overnight and the campground was clean and simple. Beautiful views of the waves from our campsite and you can walk right on the massive empty beach in a couple minutes from camp.
  • We come here every year for a family reunion. Right next to the beach and it has hookup sites and tent sites. Really tough to get a reservation though, you need to book as soon as sites are available!
