The Statepark is just an awesome place. The sand, the Lake, the Pier, the Lighthouse, Playgrounds etc. It has everything you could ask for but it’s still a quiet place where you can relax and enjoy a day in the beach without ay stress!!!

It's not the ocean, but it feels like it. The sand is so soft and the water was a tad bit cold but very clear. But the waves make up for the cooler temperature. Definitely grab your folding chair and towel and don't miss a...More
