  • Very clean and well organized. Cute little splash pad, perfect for rinsing off when kids are done at beach. Pool looked great, although with parking fee and a large family, it could add up. We stuck with the beach and had a great time. Would like to come back another time and use other amenities such as the game room. Bathrooms clean. Cute cafe. Easy to lug stuff onto the beach on the pathway provided. Free sunscreen dispenser on beach.
  • Such a great family spot. The beach amenities are free to use and open year-round. The pool has a small fee and closes a few months a year (pity), but it’s totally worth it. I recommend getting there early unless you have a reserved spot.
