Of the park, one Dyrt reviewer wrote: “We visited for our summer vacation. It was supposed to be a quick 5-day trip. It ended up being 9 days! The park rangers and volunteer staff were awesome and very accommodating. We rented a golf cart and were able to cruise to the beach, dinner and ice cream for the kids. We highly recommend renting or bringing your carts or bikes, there are a lot of things to see and places to go.”
