We enjoyed a beautiful Sunday afternoon at the beach in September. Beach was clean and lots of fun for everyone. We highly recommend the Trinity restaurant, also. And the boat cruises!

The city needs to figure this out. There were huge families setting up tent villages and sleeping cots, trash blowing around, kids feeding seagulls which were swarming everyone, cigarette butts, goose poop EVERYWHERE, trucks driving through the parking lot with boat trailers trying to back...More

Suggest a traveler best check on local events. We traveled there without checking local event and all of down town area was blocked off do to a large event running race. We could not get to the beach so went on up North.

We stopped to check out the beach late this afternoon. The beach was clean, the water was clean and clear. It’s pretty here.

Adequate free parking makes this place very cool. The beach is OK but not Florida. Nice facilities, pavilions, BBQ, tables, etc. The Statue of Liberty is a bit quirky but cute. You can have a pleasant afternoon here. It’s free.

Perfect beach for a hot summer day. Came down from Canada for the day and thoroughly enjoyed this piece of nature right in heart of Sandpoint. Lots of grassland and trees to get some shade...if that’s what you want, and plenty of beach access.
