Beautiful and clean!!

This a quiet , clean and beautiful beach . Good place to camp or just a day trip. Ponies are the main attraction but let's Keep a little distance , they smell. Get all the info at the visitor center before crossing the bridge . Btw , this is for people who likes no crowd and happening stuff. There are not many restaurants close by. We liked it.

Very lovely and natural beach, uncommerialized, very clean, and horse siting are exciting and fun. High recommended. I hope to return sometime soon. The only negative is having to cross the bridge to get to it.

I have been coming to this State Park for more than 30 years camping in tents and pop-up camper as well as most recently hard side camper. I was camping with my family, which included infant and small toddler and 5,6 and 7 year old. The ponies are extremely aggressive ,more so than bears in Yellowstone. You have to be super vigilant ,even around campfires at night. There are not enough Park personnel to manage the ponies. Speaking of the park itself there is soon to be a downsizing of campsites on the dune side of campground which will translate to an even more difficult time when it comes to making reservations online. They should really go back to first come first served when coming to camp as when the sign says "No Vacancy" you will see many vacant campsites. Just because of the ponies I would not recommend camping here with small children.

This is a nice beach area that is not terribly crowded when the ones on the mainland are crazy. It is a deep beach though and tough walking for an old girl like me. The rest rooms are clean but not fancy and the whole area is well kept. Watch out for the ponies as you are coming and going.
Horses & Beach was great

Enjoyed the wildlife very much and the beach was only a few feet from the campground. Bathhouses were adequate, typical campground showers. This is an alcohol free campground so do not look to enjoy your alcoholic beverages here. Will camp here again.
