How lucky I feel that the Huntingtons left their beauitful home and property for us to enjoy. We enjoyed a free tour with an awsome volunteer. We walked the grounds and spent time on the beach. It was relaxing and soothing and FUN !!!

Beautiful state park, relaxing and peaceful like most state parks. Because it's a State Park there is an admission charge, but worth price.

This park offered a big history of the area and its development. Gate charge is minimal. My suggestion would be to include tour cost ($2) into entrance fee. It felt a bit like nickel and diming. It's nothing that'll break the bank and worth the...More
