This park can only be reached by water, so canoeists, kayakers and standup paddlers mingle on the sandy beach with boaters, divers and seals (the latter of which we recommend should be given a very wide berth!). Scuba dive, or nap on the beach, then head back to the mainland for a picnic dinner at forested Kopachuck State Park. Or tie your boat to a mooring buoy and fall asleep to the sound of gentle waves and the occasional bark of a seal. The waterfront lifestyle is waiting for you!
