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 especially like this park because of the boardwalk which allows persons with walking limitations a chance to walk among the sand dunes - job well done!

Even though some of the walkways were under construction and closed, we still walked on two of them and didn't feel like we missed anything. The inlet side was much calmer and not as windy. There were a lot if sea shells and nice restrooms....More

There is a parking lot at the dog park, but it requires a $5 admission. There is also a dog washing area, an entrance to the boardwalk, and beach and Inlet access.
