If you have traveled this far to get here, spend some time, watching, listening, smelling, basking, swimming, looking, finding, sharing..... and simply experiencing the more than 9 miles of shoreline of this very narrow peninsula, on the bay. I wanna be a kid again.....

We've been to this park a few times and just love it. A couple of times we drove in and parked and then walked around. And once we rode bikes into the park. All the visits were great.

I'm not sure, we went off season and got in free. I did not see any place to camp but there maybe camp grounds in the area. You will love it, it's gorgeous!
