Everyone needs to see this gem of a place. Hundreds of acres on the ocean and as peaceful as heaven. Even with a large number of visitors, it is still peaceful and calming to sit and watch the clouds and the birds. Great Zen

What a beautiful park. The size is enormous, surrounded by water. Loads of picnic benches and grills. Great roads and bike paths as well. My favorite park hands down!!

We were not expecting such beauty. Immaculate, spacious, with beautiful bike trail along the water. The picnic areas are all designated and clean. There are many of them under treed locations. Beautiful drive through this large state park. Worth a trip to come back for....More

My husband and I used to visit here often. The park is beautiful, and the walking path is lovely! The scenery is breath taking and a nice place to picnic or have a small wedding ceremony.

This was our first time to the park, but hopefully will not be the last. Ample picnic tables, walking/biking trails, great views of the bay, and a great way to spend a peaceful day.

This park is very big. Lots of areas to play games, picnic, hike, ride bikes, etc. We enjoyed walking along the water - watching fishermen, birds, boats, collecting shells. Very pretty area.

I believe they book the chapel in 3 hour increments. Double check though.
