“Love Living Here”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Best time of year is ether just before Memorial Day and just after Labor Day, no crowds. During the midweek it is usually not that busy except around July 4th. The beach is well maintained and the water gets nice around late June. Lived here 52 years and wouldn't move anyplace else.

“Great Beach Day”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Everyone that complains about the parking fees has clearly not been to a state park outside of their own state..if you know that you're going on a trip don't be surprised when you have to pay. The food is expensive but you can always bring a cooler. Very clean and there are a few cute shops around.

“Not a good beach”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I did not like this beach. The parking is ridiculous and the beach itself is just way too crowded on a Sunday. Everybody is packed in like sardines with beach blankets actually blanketing the beach. It was basically impossible to move around. I would not recommend this beach. Go somewhere else less crowded.

“Love, love, love the beach!”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

While visiting family in nearby Pawcatuck, CT, a guest at the hotel where we were staying in North Stonington, CT recommended Misquamicut State Beach. It was pretty close (less than 4 miles away). Parking fees were reasonable (depending on how close you wanted to be to beach access and day of the week). We parked in The Andrea Seaside Restaurant and Beach Bar lot for $10, but was given a $5 off coupon to use towards anything in the restaurant and bar. Our visit was on a Wednesday, but the beach was a little too crowded for our tastes. The beach was clean, and the water pretty clear-looking.

“Last Beach Trip”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Headed to Misquamicut for a end of summer beach trip with friends. I was suprised by the pricey parking fee for out of staters on the weekend but the facilities and beach were clean and well guarded. There was a problem with jelly fish the day we were there but no so bad that we did not enjoy the water. Overall it is a nice getaway that is pretty close to Albany NY and points east!
