Going on a Sunday in mid-summer had me concerned that it would be too crowded or that we wouldn't find any parking. Both were no problem because the beach is very big and there was more than ample parking ($15 as is with any state beach).
It is so much more relaxing to bring little kids to this beach vs. the ocean because there are no waves and the water starts out very shallow and only very very gradually gets deep.
I was somewhat concerned about the negative water quality levels commented on but looking at a water quality site, at least for now, the water has a good grade.
Check out the very cool playground area--especially the very unique "group" swing. You're kids will definitely be asking for more.
Why 4 stars and not 5? The women's bathroom was pretty trashy ( as are most beach bathrooms ) with floors being wet with paper towels on them. I understand it's a beach and people go in wet but it looked like sanitation people had not been in there for a awhile.
And second there is no food concession stand...kind of surprising for as many people as there are not to have one. The beach is supposed to go through an improvement project soon and maybe they'll add one then. A helpful hint is that there is a small market just next door to the parking lot where you can buy most any food or drink.
In summary you will probably have a very pleasant visit if you do decide to go.
