  • I love taking my girls to the park here. It's by the water with a couple access points to the water. It's very relaxing and quiet. We saw dolphins today, so cool! A couple were playful and jumping out of the water. We always have fun here. Also, they have clean bathrooms.
  • There are about 2.5 miles in walking trails as well as a playground at this park. It’s a great place to take my kids to play and stretch our legs. The restrooms are clean. I haven’t used the campground or boat ramp but they seem to be very popular.
