This is a great beach for swimming, relaxing, and water sports. We were the only ones on the beach after 3pm.

Came here because my friend was running a triathalon here. It was a beautiful area with walking trails, the beach, and a long, off-road bike lane.

Views are beautiful. Staff is friendly. Music went on, Fri and Sat til after midnight. Camp hosts did nothing about it. If you WANT to sleep, this isn’t the place to go

If you want side by side parking lot camping under giant street lights, this is your place. There are no restrooms, it is required that your unit be inspected for both gray and black water holding tanks. It’s very expensive for not much. Beach is...More

We really liked this beach. We went in Dec 2018 and Jan 2019, so we weren't swimming just wading, looking for shells etc. There were nice bathrooms and showers for cleaning up. There was a parking fee.
