Fishing is abundant in the fall during the stripe bass migration. Anglers may also catch blue fish and a variety of salt-water species.The park is also actively managed for the protection of the piping plover and sea beach amaranth. Stewards monitor the natural resources and provide education to visitors regarding habitat management. Swimming not permitted.
