Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
July 8 Family Tradition by Megan
My family has been coming here for 40 years and with every generation it just keeps getting better. You CANNOT beat the beach....or really anything about this park. The near by attractions. A grocery store right around the corner. The crystal clear water or the sand...you will never feel sand like it!!!

July 27 One of our favorite parks by Peggy
This is one of our favorite parks to stay in. It is close enough yet far enough away. For pilots, the nearby airport has friendly owners & nice runways.
