Hoffmaster State Park reviews
Great hiking both on and off the beach. There are also steps up to a lookout area. May choices, easy parking, and a visitor center with restrooms and limited hours.

Beautiful beach in a natural setting. Short walk from parking lot with restrooms and changing rooms. Powdery sand and gorgeous shoreline perfect for a long walk. Also enjoyed the 1 mile wall loop..... more

We LOVE it here. This park is always and I mean ALWAYS very clean. There is an educational center with local wildlife information. It's interesting and fun for kids too. There are tons of maintained trails. Plenty of parking available. There is access to a wonderful beach. You can walk a trail to the beach or go to the parking area that is for the beach. Beach showers and foot showers are available. There are also portable toilets on several trails. There is a permanent bathroom with changing rooms by the beach. Dogs and cats allowed to walk with you if leashed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Extra stars!!!!!
