Ferry Beach State Park reviews
Great park for walking with kids or dogs. Grills and tables for a picnic. Rest rooms near the beach. Quiet and clean.

Bathrooms, life guards in the summer, and a wonderful sandy beach. Not crowed, and if it is, the beach goes on for miles

Ok reading about this place at first I thought too good to be as advertised. First impression was wow nice parking for handicap and regular. Bathrooms were very nice and open during all warmer weather. The path down to beach is very accessible for any wheelchair. Not crowded clean area with a lifeguard stand ( wasn't used while I was here) Many seashells for kids to collect benches to sit on AAA rating from me. Only thing I did see was a very strong riptide but as a seasoned beach goer I know those can happen anywhere. Just keep your eyes peeled.
This is a great place to come by yourself, with a friend, bring your family or take your pet for a walk! *Just, please, pick up after your dog!* There are many walking trails, all clearly marked and labeled for easy access and the novice trail walker. Also, they offer picnic tables, restrooms and beach access during the on-season. Even when the gate is down; people are still welcome to walk the trails at their leisure! Park workers and volunteers kindly ask that you pick up after yourself when using the Park Grounds. Enjoy! *Pictures were taken from Google Images, they are not my photos!*
