This is a pretty cool park. It’s has beautiful views, a fishing pier, and in March of 2018 they were building a new boardwalk. I didn’t care for the construction detour on the existing boardwalk, but am looking forward to the new one once complete.

Thank RogWyatt

Love walking here. The boardwalk is not completely finished from the storm damage. They are widening the paths and using trek deck. So far what they have done is very nice. I am sure it will be wonderful when completed. The setting could not be...More

We bring visiting friends there for the 1.5 mile walk on a boardwalk that brings you to the beach and through the dines where sea turtles have their nests. Places to stop for a rest under shade. I think it was a $5.00 charge to...More

Although still under renovation, the portions of the boardwalk that are complete are FANTASTIC!! New fishing pier & expanded dog paths, shower facilities for people & dogs to wash sand off, friendly toll gate people & park rangers. Parking is very limited, though.

We went to this park mainly to show some family from Europe the beach. In the midst of December it wasn't a visit to enjoy the water and beach, but just to see the area. The parking is a little bit away from the beach...More

Don't think you can use it. But, after 5 p.m. the park is free. If you are staying for more than 2 days and want to go with the dogs during the day. Buy the pass. You can go in and out of the park as many times during the... More

Unfortunately, the boardwalk is not continuous. There is a short stretch between the doggie beach boardwalk and the boardwalk from the parking lot that crosses the sandy foot path. A distance, I'd guess, of 25-30 feet.
